Monsanto Protection Act

In Earth Offenders on March 21, 2013 at 7:22 pm

Today Congress succeeded in passing Section 735, aka the Monsanto Protection Act–
It was part of the Continuing Resolution spending bill. This gives Monsanto a blank check.
Per Food Democracy “This dangerous provision, which we’re calling the Monsanto Protection Act, strips judges of their constitutional mandate to protect consumer and farmer rights and the environment, while opening up the floodgates for the planting of new untested genetically engineered crops, endangering farmers, citizens and the environment.”

This is scary stuff folks- it reads like a plot to a movie where the world has gone mad and is controlled by corporations. Corporations are not people. Other countries have stood up to Monsanto and thrown them out! We have to get LOUD and be heard before it is too late.

Food Democracy has a petition. Sign it. Call your Senator. Email them. Be civic. Be anything other than apathetic.
