Submitted by Food Democracy Now on June 23, 2015 - 7:13pm

 

Don't let Monsanto corrupt our democracy and our food supply! - Take Action Today!

This is our last chance to stop Fast Track, take action today to make sure your Senators vote NO to Monsanto’s Secret Trade Deal.

 

Dear FDN! Supporters,

We regret to inform you that earlier this morning the U.S. Senate voted 60 to 37 to pass cloture on Fast Track authority on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). Today’s vote was a procedural vote on cloture, which limits debate on this secret international trade agreement, the language of which, the American public has not been allowed to read.

This vote, and the secrecy surrounding the Fast Track agreement, is an absolute betrayal of the American people that undermines representative democracy and the important consumer protection laws that local, state and federal elected officials have passed to protect our health, environment and economy.

The Senate will hold their final vote on Fast Track tomorrow, where it is expected pass. If this you feel betrayed by today’s vote, we need you to make your voice heard right now!

1. Demand an end to secret trade deals: Stop the Fast Track of Monsanto’s secret trade deal before it’s too late! Every voice counts!

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY-R) is boasting that he has the votes to pass Fast Track. But not if we can help it!

2. Then, (more important) Please, take 30 seconds to call your Senators today and Tell them to Vote NO on Monsanto's Secret Trade Deal, which will make GMO labeling illegal.

Make sure they hear from you today!
