We have been betrayed part two: a death blow to organic farmers

Some of my readers may have known that in New York a trial was held to uphold the rights of organic farmers to grow their crops without the fear of being sued for patent infringement by Monsanto.

We lost.

What do I mean by we?  I mean we in the sense that Monsanto can now freely grow their crops and the bees and the wind can bring the pollen in to contaminate your organic produce.

Further, Judge Buchwald, in her ruling said that the corporate thugs at Monsanto have given us their “promise” not to bring litigation and “that should be a source of comfort.”

A source of comfort for who?  Certainly not we as consumers!  I do not relish the thought of eating hidden GMOs.  If whole countries in other parts of the world can ban GMOs why aren’t we?

I want clean food, and at the very minimum I want proper labeling.  I want the choice when I shop with my food dollars of knowing that my food does not contain GMOs.

Now, thanks to a judge in New York and the USDA I get neither.

NOTE:  In my last post about this I complained that I felt like a “Gnat screaming in a wind tunnel.”  Well, as a good friend pointed out, many gnats can be a force to be reckoned with.  Use the links above to get informed and to contact those who are in charge.  Let them know we are not just random and isolated nut-jobs out here.

Spread the word and Let your voices be heard

Thank you!
