Breaking: The Monsanto Protection Act is Back and WORSE than ever! Right now Monsanto and biotech lobbyists are scrambling in Washington DC to try to find enough U.S. Senators to pass a deceptive bill that will kill states’ rights to label genetically engineered foods and give the illusion of proper oversight of their untested GMOs and toxic weedkillers.
Even worse, a small group of Democrat and Republican Senators are working behind the scenes to pass the ultimate Monsanto Protection Act by sneaking a rider into a must pass spending bill that would permanently kill the GMO labeling movement in the U.S..
Monsanto already succeeded in passing this bill in the House this summer — Pompeo’s H.R. 1599, by a vote of 275 to 150 — and we need to make sure we stop their dangerous plan in the Senate.
We need all hands on deck to stop the ultimate Monsanto Protection Act and convince your Senators not to violate states’ rights and kill GMO labeling and allow GMOs to be labeled “natural”!
This is a blatant power grab to deny Americans their basic right to know and protect flawed GMO products – and we can’t allow them to get away with it. We need your help today. Every voice counts!
