We’re Dropping the Money Bomb!

About 20 years ago, the†FDA decided to deny consumers the right to know whether their food was†genetically altered or not. This shameful regulation was spearheaded by Michael†Taylor, a former Monsanto lawyer who transferred into the offices of the FDA.†Taylor is not the only ex-Monsanto†employee that ended up in a position of power within the US federal government†and its regulatory agencies, and this is precisely why previous efforts to get†genetically engineered foods labeled have been blocked.

Not so this time!

Ballot Initiatives†like the one in California is one way for citizens to take back control from compromised politicians and government†officials and bypass them entirely.† To†sweeten the deal further, a group of “Right to Know” public interest organizations†and organic companies have pledged to match the first million dollars raised in†this nationwide “Drop the Money Bomb on Monsanto Campaign.”

Help us raise 1 million dollars to win this historic campaign! These “Right†to Know” groups include:

  • The Organic Consumers Association
  • Mercola.com
  • Food Democracy Now
  • Nature’s Path
  • Lundberg Family Farms
  • Eden Foods
  • The Organic Consumers Fund
  • Institute for Responsible Technology

It's a real shame we have so many stupid people here in Canada who voted for the warmonger corporate drone Stephen Harper who opposes letting people know what they are eating. It's unlikely he will last out his term and hopefully he will be charged and convicted for the crimes he and his cronies have committed.

I REALLY wish I had extra money to donate, but I'm broke, all I can do is vote for it when it comes up, and spread the word as much as i can.

We have the right to know what is in the food we consume. You are doing an injustice to all of us by hiding things from the public. It is wrong, don't allow these companies to do this anymore.

I am from South Africa, one of the top 10 GMO invaded countries in the world, where legislation has been passed regarding labelling of food. However the requirements are not stringent enough in that notification of the presence of GM seed or the fact that Roundup was used in seed production is not required to be disclosed. well over 90% of maize and soya production is genetically modified and nothing indicates on labels that it is so. I have written to newspapers and investigative TV programmes, referring them to Prof. Huber's work on GM production, as well as the adverse effects that he attributes to Monsanto's Roundup products. This has had some gratifying coverage, but the message needs to be aggressively promoted as the general lack of knowledge and apathy runs rampant. This whole subject needs concerted worldwide attention to get people to realize the dangers the face. Any help and support that we can get from around the world from caring people passing this information on to friends and families in South Africa, to help in making them aware of what is happening would be very welcome. we nee to exert pressure on our government agricultural departments and parliament, to face up to and deal decisively with this time bomb. Good hunting in getting the subject out in the open in the USA, where it seems that unrestricted official permission is being given to the unbridled expansion of GM produced crops and genetically engineered pesticide treatment of crops is concerned.

RE: above article - please consider viewing the documentary 'Food, Inc.'. It will give you the names of other Monsanto lawyers who ended up in other positions like in the FDA. What a racket! Monsanto, king of 'worst'.
