Right now we’re being betrayed in Washington D.C. by a group of donation-hungry Senators and a handful of corrupt corporate organic companies that have just brokered an outrageous deal behind our backs in an effort to kill mandatory GMO labeling.
Just days before Vermont’s historic first-in-the-nation bill that's scheduled to go into effect this Friday, July 1st, an unholy alliance for corporate interests has crafted an outrageous corporate sellout by Monsanto, Just Label It, the Organic Trade Association, Stonyfield, Smucker's, Organic Valley and Whole Foods who are desperately trying to trample our basic democratic rights to protect their corporate profits.
Thanks to Monsanto and this corrupt cabal of organic executives all the provisions of the new bill are optional and would exempt 85% of GMOs planted today, including those from all of Monsanto's Roundup Ready GMO seeds. This bill is essentially a "Non-labeling" bill, but provides Monsanto and America’s most corrupt food companies the chance to continue to avoid GMO labels, while keeping the doors open for a flood of campaign cash from the likes of Monsanto, DuPont, Pepsi, Smucker’s and General Mills.
Let Vermont's historic GMO labeling bill stand! 64 other countries label GMOs, why not America? Join us to make a stand! And take 30 seconds to call the Senate switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
