stop supporting Monsanto, start supporting organics…a petition

Subject: President Obama and Monsanto

Dear Friend,

President Obama’s USDA recently issued a decision to allow the planting of Monsanto’s genetically modified (GMO) alfalfa. It is highly likely that the uncontrolled spread of engineered genes from GMO plants will put the organic dairy and beef industry in peril.

The fight against GMOs is a long one, but now is not the time to back down. We need to hold President Obama accountable for his decisions, and let him know that we won’t stop fighting until he stands up for farmers and eaters, and not Monsanto and Big Ag.

Sign the petition today and tell him you won’t back down:

Green glossary

Grass-fed: An animal raised on freshly grazed pasture during the growing season and stored grasses (such as hay) during the winter months. (In modern farming, animals are often raised on feed composed of genetically modified ingredients cut with unsavory byproducts.) Cattle, sheep, goats and bison are often grass fed. Other terms for grass-fed products include “pasture-raised,” “pasture-finished,” and “grass-finished.”
