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.

UPDATE: 200,000 - Tell President Obama to Veto the Monsanto Protection Act, You In?

175,000 Tell President Obama to Veto the Monsanto Protection Act

Dear Fellow Americans and Food Democracy Now! members,

We want to thank the more than 175,000 Food Democracy Now! members who have taken action so far. The response has been incredible and a sign of how outraged everyday Americans are at the continued backroom deals struck by our elected officials and Monsanto lobbyists.
