Monsanto Nation: The Worst Farm Bill in History_Featured_, Farming, Food, GMOs, Monsanto Saturday, July 21st, 2012
Tell Congress to fix this horrible Farm Bill! Take Action!
Last week, the House Agriculture Committee rolled out its version of the Farm Bill (H.R.6083). We told you about Monsanto’s latest line of attack on the few laws that actually protect “a farmer’s choice to grow non-genetically engineered crops, or a consumer’s choice to eat non-genetically engineered food.”
If you haven’t already taken action to stop Monsanto’s sneak attack, both in the House Farm Bill and the Monsanto Rider in the 2013 Agriculture Appropriations Bill, click here.
Monsanto’s attacks on the law’s ability to protect farmers and consumers from unwanted, dangerous GMO contamination may be the boldest example of its power over Congress. But there’s a lot more in the House Farm Bill that benefits biotechnology and Big Ag at the expense of family farmers and organic and sustainable food and agriculture.
