SUPPORT LABELING OF GMO'S IN CALIFORNIA!
If voters pass the initiative, food sellers would be required to use a label identifying foods grown from genetically engineered seeds or containing genetically engineered ingredients. The initiative would also outlaw the routine industry practice of marketing GMO-tainted foods as “natural.”
It's only a matter of time before Monsanto trys to defeat this initiative. Between May 1 and May 26, a broad coalition of food, farm, health, public interest, and environmental groups all over the country, joined by leading organic food companies, will attempt to raise one million dollars to support the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act and other state GMO-labeling campaigns.
Help raise one million dollars by May 26. Let's show Big Biotech and Food, Inc. what we, the 99%, can do when we work together for a common cause:
Millions Against Monsanto Campaign plans to join forces with the Occupy Monsanto protests across the country the week of September 17th, 2012 to create the largest Days of Action for GMO Labeling ever! We want to raise the clamor for labeling to a fever pitch and you can help!
Here's what we need:
More activists and more awareness in each state!
There are now 692,413 in our Millions Against Monsanto campaign! Let's get one million by September 17th! In the months leading up to the Days of Action, we need you to
a. gather petition signatures (PDF) http://www.organicconsumers.org/monsanto/oca-gmo-labeling-petition.pdf
b. pass out leaflets at your local farmer's market or natural food store. Summer is the perfect time to raise awareness about food. http://www.organicconsumers.org/monsanto/materials.cfm
