I just took action calling on Secretary Vilsack and President Obama to reject the approval of Monsanto's GMO alfalfa and protect the integrity of organics. Approving GMO alfalfa will destroy the integrity of and access to many organic foods, as well as the livelihoods of thousands of organic farmers.
The approval of GMO alfalfa is only days away and the Obama administration needs to hear from you and all of your friends who care about organics.
Please take a moment to let Vilsack and President Obama know that you care about organic integrity by following this link from Food Democracy Now! Then please pass this on.
Please go to the website http://action.fooddemocracynow.org/sign/kiss_your_organics_goodbye and sign the petition to stop genetically modified alfalfa.
Every voice counts! THANK YOU, FRIENDS!!!
Below is some more information from the website.
Act Today Or Kiss Your Organics Goodbye!
After years of bureaucratic wrangling, Secretary Vilsack and the Obama administration are only days away from approving Monsanto’s genetically modified (GMO) alfalfa. If approved, GMO alfalfa will fundamentally undermine the entire organic industry overnight. In addition, the USDA says American consumers don't care about the contamination of organics.
Please join us in calling on Secretary Vilsack and President Obama to stand up for organic family farmers by rejecting the approval of Monsanto's GMO alfalfa. Tell them to protect organic integrity and seed biodiversity over corporate profits.
