Remember the Monsanto-backed bill to squash GMO labeling? Well, it’s on the move again — and it’s worse than ever.
OPPOSE HR 1599 !!
Dubbed the “Deny Americans the Right to Know” or DARK Act by its critics, this bill would block GE food labeling laws across the country. This latest version would also prohibit local governments from restricting genetically engineered (GE) crops in any way — even when those laws are already on the books.
U.S. House likely to vote on Thursday.
STARBUCKS IN ALLIANCE WITH MONSANTO SUES STATE OF VERMONT
Contrary to the misleading information coming from Starbucks, the coffee company is in alliance with other Food Giants, including Monsanto, in suing the state of Vermont to overturn the GMO labeling laws voted for by the people. An alliance is a pact, coalition or friendship between two or more parties, made in order to advance common goals and to secure common interests. Starbucks and Monsanto are members of the Grocery Manufacturers Alliance. The Grocery Manufacturers Alliance sued the state of Vermont to overturn the people’s will to mandate GMO labeling in Vermont. In communications with Starbucks the company was unresponsive to the direct question on whether Starbuck’s coffee product contained GMOs. —Neil Young,California http://neilyoung.com/index.html
