It is time to take back our food!
President Obama has given Monsanto immunity with the signing of Senate bill HR 933, affectionately known by opponents as the Monsanto Protection Act. Late Tuesday, March 26th, while most of the country was enthralled in the DOMA debate, provisions were passed, effectively barring federal courts from being able to stop the sale or planting of controversial genetically modified or genetically engineered (GE) seeds, despite what health issues may arise concerning their use in the future. Wrapped in a “farmer-friendly” package, this Monsanto-driven rider is simply a biotech industry ploy to continue to plant GE crops even when a court of law has found they were approved illegally. Families, individuals, and businesses in our community are joining together to take a stand against Monsanto. March Against Monsanto (MAM) educates & advocates for consumers everywhere concerned about the safety of GMOs. MAM events across the world on May 25 amplify the public outcry for labeling of ALL GMO products and symbolize the widespread public opposition to the newly passed US Senate bill, HR 933, the Monsanto Protection Act.
