Occupy Genetically Engineered Foods!

An action alert from the Center For Food Safety

Sen. Boxer and Rep. De Fazio wrote a “Dear Colleague” letter which went public February 8th, urging U.S. legislators to support the labeling of GE foods. This is the first initiative of its kind in Congress and is a great opportunity to urge your Congressional representatives to sign on to the letter and support mandatory labeling!

Time’s Almost Up, People!

Act as though your life depends upon it..

“If you’re talking about PCBs, Agent Orange, Bovine Growth Hormone, water privatization, bio-piracy, untested/unlabeled genetically engineered organisms, or persecuting small family farmers”,  you’re most likely talking about Monsanto, the World’s Most Hated  Corporation..

There are about 3 seconds left to join OCA’s campaign to mobilize one million consumers to end Monsanto’s global corporate terrorism.

Sign the Millions Against Monsanto petition, demanding the corporation:

  • Stop intimidating small family farmers.
  • Stop force-feeding untested and unlabeled genetically engineered foods on consumers.
  • Stop using billions of dollars of U.S. taxpayers’ money to subsidize genetically engineered crops–cotton, soybeans, corn and canola.

Bonus! Get the facts about Islam A. Siddiqui, Vice President for Science and Regulatory Affairs at CropLife America (you know, those people who sent letters to Michelle Obama, chastising her for not spraying toxic chemicals on the White House’s organic garden) and current nominee for  Chief Agricultural Negotiator, Office of US Trade Rep.
