Different Kind of GMO is Headed to Supermarket Shelves

Support Organic farmers.

The  Environmental Protection Agency is currently reviewing concerns about RNAi technology raised by several research papers. But the agency’s authority to regulate transgenic crops is limited (See inset). Meanwhile, several other RNAi-altered fruits and vegetables, including non-bruising potatoes, called Innate Potato, and a new kind of pest-resistant corn, are on their way to supermarket shelves.

While the technology has indeed been used in many pharmaceutical products, in the past several years several food crops utilizing RNAi too, have been developed. The most troubling among these are the ones developed for pest control.

Toxins in the food.

That’s the point.

That’s the selling point — to farmers — not to you, the actual end-user. You’re not allowed to know.

If you don’t like the idea of corporate profiteers ramming their experimental foods down your throat, and the throats of your loved ones, then you’re not alone.

Who Was Really Paid to Bury GMO Labeling via the DARK Act?

Despite 90% of people wanting labeling

Surveys repeatedly show that 80 percent to 95 percent of people want foods that contain genetically modified organisms to be labeled (in the least). Here is a simple breakdown of some reported polls on consumer demand for GMO labeling:

Journalists Accuse White House of Politically-Driven Suppression of News

Over three dozen journalist organizations including the Radio Television Digital News Association, National Press Foundation, and the Society of Professional Journalists, have asked the President to drop the “excessive controls” on public information by federal agencies, branding it “politically driven suppression of news and information about federal agencies.”

There has been an ongoing tension between broadcast, print and online journalists and the Obama administration, with complaints that the Administration has limited access to events, while providing its own “coverage” through official channels.

For those who’ve been drunk and tied up in a basement this past decade, the fascism of the federal government is becoming harder and harder to disguise. Fascism is corporate/state partnership to fuck over the powerless common people – like you. Welcome to Mussolini’s America. Grow up and take a stand for real freedom, not this prepackaged flag waving, orchestrated mindlessness they feed the rubes. It requires knowledge, vigilance, logic and courage.

Unless the people say NO, they will seize more power until the America you once knew is unrecognizable, except for the red, white and blue propaganda banners littering the slums.

Obama signs Monsanto Protection Act! It’s Time to Label GMOs!

We regret to inform you that late last night President Barack Obama signed H.R. 993, which contained the Monsanto Protection Act into law. President Obama knowingly signed the Monsanto Protection Act over the urgent pleas of more than 250,000 Americans who asked that he use his executive authority to veto it. President Obama failed to live up to his oath to protect the American people and our constitution.

Today we’re calling on President Obama to issue an executive order to call for the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods.

Not only is GMO labeling a reasonable and common sense solution to the continued controversy that corporations like Monsanto, DuPont and Dow Chemical have created by subverting our basic democratic rights, but it is a basic right that citizens in 62 other countries around the world already enjoy, including Europe, Russia, China, India, South Africa and Saudi Arabia.

Join us in demanding mandatory labeling of GMO foods. Now’s the time!

Label GMOs. You have a right to know if that produce is a Frankenfood, like most of the world.

MONSANTO is pulling out all stops to propagandize the public about why they should remain ignorant and powerless when choosing food. A recent study linking rats to tumors will be attacked for its methodology. That is but one study out of hundreds.

The LA WEEKLY also has a write up on Prop 37, the “Right to Know” ballot initiative. This could be the first step toward changing the laws nationally in the US.
