Monsanto's latest attack
Robert Shepherd- MoveOn
A so-called "Monsanto rider," quietly slipped into the multi-billion dollar FY 2013 Agricultural Appropriations bill, would require—not just allow, but require—the Secretary of Agriculture to grant a temporary permit for the planting or cultivation of a genetically engineered crop, even if a federal court has ordered the planting be halted until an Environmental Impact Statement is completed.
That's why I created a petition on SignOn.org to the U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:
Stop the Monsanto rider. Unless the Senate or a citizen's army of farmers and consumers can stop them, the House of Representatives is likely to ram this dangerous rider through any day now.
This petition was created on SignOn.org, the progressive, nonprofit petition site. SignOn.org is sponsored by MoveOn Civic Action, which is not responsible for the contents of this or other petitions posted on the site. Robert Shepherd didn't pay us to send this email—we never rent or sell the MoveOn.org list.
