You Don’t Matter. House Votes for Monsanto’s Right to Deceive Consumers

On Thursday, 275 members of the U.S. House of Representatives voted in favor of H.R. 1599, the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act.

They voted against the 90-percent of Americans who are in favor of mandatory labeling of GMOs. They voted against the producers of non-GMO foods. They voted against you.

Anti-GMO Petition Receives 59,742,753 Signatures

It isn’t a small minority anymore asking our regulators to limit biotech’s far-reaching arm.

The open letter is signed by celebrities, scientists, farmers, academics in various fields, business tycoons, and every day people like you and me. It’s called the letter from America, but it is getting global attention. No longer can Americans be called sheeple.
