President Obama, Stop the Monsanto Protection Act

Submitted by Food Democracy Now on March 26, 2013 - 8:02am

Food Democracy Now!, a national grassroots movement to build a safe, sustainable food system is urging President Obama to veto HR. 933, the short-term funding measure that Congress passed last Thursday morning by a vote of 318 to 109. Tucked inside the Congressional spending bill is a poison pill, Section 735, known as the Monsanto Protection Act, that undermines the independence of judicial review and gives biotech seed companies like Monsanto, DuPont and Dow Chemical a blank check on the approval of new genetically engineered crops.
