Breaking: New Hampshire Senator Ayotte supports Monsanto over NH

URGENT: 48 hours to Defend Vermont and Defeat Monsanto! We need your help to STOP Monsanto's Dark Act TODAY- Every voice counts! 

We have less than 48 hours to stop Monsanto and the biotech industry from killing GMO labeling for good.

Vermont's first-in-the nation GMO labeling bill will go into effect on July 1st, but only if you take action today!

This is huge and historic, but Senators Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Pat Roberts (R-KS) are now claiming they are VERY CLOSE - even "inches" away from an horrible compromise national GMO labeling bill that will stop Vermont's GMO labeling bill from going into effect and force an industry led voluntary solution that will mislead and deceive consumers about what's actually in their food.

Unfortunately, when the Senate tried to pass Monsanto's Dark Act in March of this year, New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte sided with Monsanto and voted against New Hampshire moms and Granite State citizens.

Even worse, in the past 2 years, Senator Ayotte has taken $10,000 from Monsanto in campaign contributions. What do you think Monsanto wants in return?

We need your help today - Tell Senator Ayotte it doesn't pay to take Monsanto's Money - Mandatory GMO labeling is a basic human right!

It's time for her to stand up for mandatory GMO labeling and DEFEND VERMONT's HISTORIC GMO LABELING LAW like her fellow Granite State Senator Jeanne Shaheen did in March!

Here's what Senator Ayotte needs to hear:
  • OPPOSE any proposal that would preempt States' Rights and Vermont's landmark GMO Labeling bill.
Any national GMO Labeling program:
  • MUST not preempt established state GMO labeling laws
  • MUST be mandatory
  • MUST require on-package labeling
  • MUST display the words "Produced With Genetic Engineering"

Then SHARE this image far and wide to Stop Monsanto's GMO Trolls in the Senate!

We've been able to stop them so far because of a massively high volume of phone calls, but we need to keep the phones ringing.
 
A vote could take place as early as next week in the Senate and your Senators need to hear from you today!
 
We are in the final hours to protect our right to know what's in our food and states' rights so we can achieve mandatory GMO labeling. Please share with your friends and call your Senators today! Every voice counts!
 
Remember, democracy is like a muscle, either you use it or you lose it!
 
Thanks for participating in food democracy,
