Subject: [COMFOOD:] Organic Justice: An Update for the Common Good
THIS JUST IN – and of relevance to all community food interests:
The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., has announced that on January 10, 2013 it will hear the appeal in a landmark legal case of critical importance to all who eat organic food: Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association (OSGATA) et al v. Monsanto.
This landmark case is also, notably, of direct relevance to Evrett Lunquist, who was the subject of my November 14 report – America’s Organic Inspectors Chilled by Libel Case. In addition to that precedent-seting libel case, Lunquist and wife Ruth Chantry of Common Good Farm in Raymond, Nebraska are among the coalition of organic farms and organizations which have banded together to press the class-action lawsuit against Monsanto…
…While the GMO invasion matter is being contested in court, this November the final report of the USDA’s Advisory Committee on Biotechnology & 21st Century Agriculture threw another hatchet at the head of organic farming and food.
The committee formally recommended that organic farmers be obliged to pay money to self-insure themselves against unwanted GMO contamination.
