Support GMO Labeling Campaigns

Can We Win?

Yes, I believe we†can!† But we need to get the word out, which requires a strong campaign to†educate the citizens of California to vote for the initiative on November 6. According to Ronnie Cummins of the Organic Consumers Association, we stand a†good chance of winning in California because:

  • This time, we have far more scientific†information and greater public awareness on our side. GE contamination is now a†mainstream media issue. Monsanto has become the most hated corporation in the† world.
  • This time, we have overwhelming public†support. Polls show that more than 8 out of 10 voters in California want†mandatory GE labeling.
  • This time, we have built the strongest†coalition of concerned food consumers in history, for the† exclusive purpose of passing this law.

The Time for Action is NOW!

Today, I ask you to invest† in this Initiative. Invest in your future. And invest as generously as you can.† If you’ve already sent in your†donation, thank you! If not, please contribute to this†historic and critical campaign today. And then please forward this email to your friends. Share it on Facebook†and Twitter. Print it out, hand it to all your friends. Every action counts!

As†stated by Ronnie Cummins with the Organic Consumers Association:

“Monsanto is one of the most powerful, arrogant and destructive companies in the world.† For decades, they have controlled the world’s food supply by buying off†politicians and regulatory agencies, intimidating small farmers, manipulating†the outcome of scientific studies, lying to consumers – and threatening to sue†states like Vermont if they dare to pass a GMO labeling law.

…† Despite Monsanto’s claims to the contrary, scientists are clear: genetically†engineered food has been linked to a wide range of health hazards, including kidney†and liver damage, infertility, auto-immune†disorders, allergies and autism,†accelerated aging, and birth†defects…

We†have the right to know if the food we buy has been genetically engineered…. It’s†time to take back our food. Our farms. Our power. It’s time to show Monsanto†what ordinary people like us can do when we come together. It’s time to drop the money bomb on Monsanto.”

Hundreds†of thousands of people making small donations can help the coalition behind†this initiative run a dynamic, effective campaign to bring down Monsanto and†the rest of the Biotech Bullies.

So please, join us,†and make a donation right now! You can donate online, by phone, or by†dropping a check in the mail.

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'.
