GMO Labeling, Specters and Enchantment

Despite mainstream news already announcing a defeat of Washington State’s I-522 Labeling Law, due to the huge volume of uncounted mail-in ballots, the real numbers won’t speak for themselves for several more days, possibly a week. Since we can and do influence our Reality, I continue to send empowering energy towards a YES vote. Win or lose, the conversation continues, as do labeling initiatives and talk of bans in other states and smaller jurisdictions.

Ultimately, we need to purge these toxic perversions of nature from the face of the Earth before they pervert everything in their wind-pollinated path, and before all the pesticides, herbicides and endocrine disrupting genes destroy humanity. I agree with Mike Adams’ recent call for guerrilla tactics — not violent, but surprising … unexpected, extremely effective gotcha moments. Apparently, Mike’s got a scientific roll-out scheduled for January 7, 2014. I suggest we have a magickal, prayerful, and energetic roll-out effective immediately.

When I tuned in last night to assess ways of banishing Monsatan et al, I received a rather strange message: “Don’t bother hexing them. Monsanto’s a ‘specter.’ You would be wise to strip the specter of its Glamour. There’s nothing substantial beneath the projection. Eating GMO foods is like the old tales of eating food in the Underworld. It’s designed to trap people on the 3D plane. Monsanto’s power comes from an enchantment, nothing more. Remove the enchantment, and no one would accidentally consume such things. It would be like watching a ‘feast’ transform to dirty rocks. Remove the enchantment and no one will fear the specter or eat its food.”

I immediately saw a Scooby Doo cartoon ghost looming over the planet, threatening the “gang” who cowered in a corner, as they wondered how to fight such an enormous, scary, powerful beast. Then I saw the specter malfunction — the costume slipped, unmasking the criminal. In typical Scooby Doo fashion, the gang grew strong again, arrested the unmasked criminal, and Scooby got a (presumably non-GMO) snack. Another vision flashed across my mind. In this one, I saw a mud hut transformed by enchantment into an elaborate, shining castle, complete with horses, knights, royalty, villagers, all shimmering and glimmering, demanding attention and luring unwary travelers to partake of the enchanted feast that would trap them in the castle. A wizard raised his staff and the castle and all its inhabitants crumbled to dust — sand in the desert, deprived of its mirage. I also thought of Hansel and Gretel and the wicked witch who lured them to her oven via the candy house.

Enchantment!
All of it.

In addition to Monsatan, I saw so many flashes of other enchantments the masses call “reality” that I seriously wonder if the dreaded “Project Bluebeam” hasn’t already been in effect for decades. Millennia?? There’s something about the food, though, that magnifies the enchantment, just like ancient myths and fairy tales reveal. For years, I’ve felt led to study fairy tales, folklore and myths, because herein lives the wisdom and knowledge suppressed by power structures that would like to remain in control. What better way than to convince the peons that any occult (hidden) knowledge that could possibly empower or guide them is evil, superstitious or silly? Indeed, it has worked quite well for a long, long time.

We speak of a global “awakening,” which hearkens back to stories like Sleeping Beauty and Rip Van Winkle. It’s not just about the lyrics of Amazing Grace: “I once was blind, but now I see,” and it’s not just “awakening from the dream,” since Dreamtime represents a powerful way of creating action in our waking world. Rather it’s like a fairy tale enchantment and the need to dismantle, disrupt or disperse that enchantment. Any of those methods would work, since if it appears even just slightly less solid, it becomes transparent, no longer effective. If produced via technology, then EMP’s, solar flares and space weather can disrupt. So can hackers. Animals chewing wires, regular wear and tear, and something as simple as rust or as powerful as an earthquake can dismantle.

But another guerrilla warfare strategy comes to mind, as well. Those of us who know how, or who have enough determination to learn how, or who are willing to outsource such things to beings from the Faery Realm who most assuredly do know how, we can hijack the enchantment itself, similar to the famous Tokyo Rose taking to the airwaves in WW2. Physical labels in the physical realm would grab attention and raise questions, yes. But if we’re really dealing with an enchantment, then perhaps we would also be wise to project enchanted labels right into the enchantment itself. Piggy back on the pervasive illusion, modifying it with our creativity and will. In a world of all possibilities, why the heck wouldn’t we insert some sort of “tag” that accompanies all GMO propaganda, crops and food? A glitch in the Matrix, a flicker in the enchantment, enough to give people pause so they experience an in the moment choice to accept or reject the imprisoning Frankenfoods.

We live in a free will Universe, but it only feels free when people realize they have a choice. We cannot make those choices for them, but we can make choices more obvious.

“All’s fair in love and war”

A transhuman, computerized, “scientific” force has been fighting an undeclared war on humanity for at least 13,000 years, probably far longer. The only reason this war remains undeclared is because most of humanity has been too oblivious to read the memo. The writing is on the wall. It has been on the wall for centuries, but in the past few years, that writing has turned to flashing neon lights. It’s in the courts, in the dying sea life, the poisonous chemtrails, the anal police probes (literally!), and the fracking that sends fire from faucets instead of water. For some bizarre reason, people continue to choose this as their reality. We cannot force them to change their minds; however, we can make the choice points much more obvious. The Universe itself has begun to do so; that’s why we witness so much contrast these days. Those fence posts are getting mighty pointy! Sooner or later, the sitters will need to jump off.

In this time of Harvest, density separation, dimensional rift — whatever you choose to call it — our choices matter. As in, they give form and structure to our material reality. I’m nonviolent by temperament, practicality and belief, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know how to defend myself. I also feel, as I’ve shared before, that visionaries who can see beyond the enchantment and imagine something preferable have a sacred duty to bring some of those visions into tangible form. That might be through painting, poetry, lyrical prose, or gardening … through soulful community involvement designed to heal the people through healing the land … through creating alternative currencies and financial paradigms … through sharing off-grid technologies … through finding our gifts and inventing ways to infuse our world with them.

I always come back to the Hopi Prophecy: “This can be a good time.” We need to recognize our own skills, power and capabilities. We need to remember that warning “labels” can take many forms. Packaging whose ink runs, foul tastes or odors, a burning feeling in the hands when picking up some poisonous “natural” chemical concoction, dreams about nightmarish Frankenfoods… . How we’ve limited ourselves in our labeling efforts! We’re not fighting an ordinary war with ordinary tools, but we can level the playing field by getting creative. Slip through timelines, use our Dreamtime, work with interdimensional and interdensity allies. There are abundantly more of us than them, and since the perversions of our Natural World affect other worlds and other realms, we have many more allies than most people imagine. This can be a fun time. “The Goddess is alive and magic is afoot.”

So is Mischief.

Love Bombs and Pixie Dust: last time I checked, those didn’t require any registration or background checks. Just sayin’ 😉

GMO Labeling Initiative in WA State

With the upcoming (November 5) vote on the GMO Labeling Initiative in Washington State, I wanted to collect and link to some of the most thoughtful articles from previously undecided voters, stores and health watch organizations. I realize that many of my own blog readers already eat organic foods and have their own opinion about GMO labels or bans. Given the confusing smear campaign of lies from big, out of state corporations, I wanted to offer information from real voters and organizations who’ve done their research. Please share with anyone you know who lives in Washington State, as GMO labels in Washington would likely result in GMO labels across the US. Many thanks!

1. My Vote on the I-522 GMO Food Labeling Initiative in Washington and Why

This is an excellent post from someone who originally signed the YES petition, then began to doubt her signature due to all the negative ads on TV. After pulling back and doing more research, actually talking to local farmers and delving into the true or false claims of those ads, this blogger shares her own process of how she returned to feeling confident about a YES vote. This one’s definitely worth a read by anyone who has felt similar pulls one way or the other, especially after the barrage of attack ads and scare tactics from the NO side.

2. Another excellent, well-researched explanation of how a regular voter came to an informed yes vote Some highlights include:

“GMOs were added to our foods in 1994 without our knowledge and consent. The GE food is processed in a sterile laboratory and complex technological environment, far away from farmers’ greenhouses and the good earth. The DNA of a plant or animal with bacteria or another microbes serving as genome carriers is bombarded into the DNA of another plant or animal at speeds reaching 600 mph. Eventually the DNA intruders attach to host DNA to achieve the desired recombined traits of both.”

“It is also important to understand a little bit about the companies who research and manufacture GMOs. They are chemical companies such as Monsanto and Dow Chemical. Their products include many banned toxins such as DDT, Agent Orange, Napalm, PCB and Bovine Growth Hormone.” …

“Included in the sustainable agriculture movement was an increasing awareness of the potential harm of GMOs in our food supply. Fueling the movement by activists and experts alike; were the proven harmful effects of GMOs on human health. Until now, the FDA had accepted industry’s word alone, that GMOs were safe. Despite the economic prowess of the chemical companies in the media, independent testing was done of GMO corn. The results were definitive that GE corn fed to rats caused abnormalities including tumors, allergies, digestive problems, liver failure and death.

“A largely unknown fact about GMOs is U.S. states with GMOs are banned from trading such food products with 15 countries and in 49 of US’s major trading partners require labeling. Consumers demanded and succeeded in having foods contaminated with GMOs labeled as such.” …

“Let’s look at advocates for labeling and voting Yes on I-522. What is their rebuttal? They say labeling will give consumers more information about our food so we can make informed choices. They want full disclosure on the label, a privilege enjoyed by 49 other countries without cost to consumers. The truth is labeling changes are made with a simple keystroke and changing labels is a common practice. Solving hunger? Well, even Third World countries have banned GMOs! Not exactly solving a hunger problem, is it? Lastly, the text of I-522 does explain what the bill exactly covers. This bill is designed to satisfy legislative requirements.

“What else is the well-funded no campaign not saying about GE food products?

“Transnational chemical corporations such as Monsanto behave as entitled Medieval fiefdoms, are litigious, and have already sued growers for patent infringement when Monsanto GE seeds germinate and grow on neighbor’s fields. Farmers are not allowed to save GE seeds. With an increasing influence on global trade and patented seed, farmers in India the suicide has reached the thousands each year as noted earlier. Around the world, larger Big Agra farms are devouring smaller farms and putting many farmers out of business. The heavy use of chemical pesticides and herbicides is polluting our groundwater and creating super weeds that require stronger herbicides to rid them. These issues are among the ones that we need to consider.

“Should chemical companies and farms be allowed to operate in secrecy or be required to fully disclose food additives that have their DNA re-defined beyond recognition to potentially become food allergens? And more importantly, will our growing awareness of technology serve corporate profits or will it help us cultivate and cherish ourselves in service of the planet and humankind?”

3. Why I’m Voting Yes on Initiative 522

The article begins, “Food labels changed my life. It sounds dramatic, but I genuinely believe I would be leading a completely different life if not for mandated food labeling. The day I began flipping to the back of packages was the day I began losing weight; it was the day my life changed course from fat, sick and tired to vibrant, active, and balanced. Straightforward and uniform food labels changed my life – for the better.” The author goes on to make several excellent points:

“The No on I-522 campaign has tried using its advertising to scare and confuse voters about the costs associated with the passage of this initiative. One of their primary messages cites an increase in the cost of groceries when new language is added to commercial packaging. Let’s think about this in terms of common sense. The last time you were in a grocery store, I’ll bet there were numerous cereal or snack food boxes with marketing images from a current or upcoming movie and beverage cans with football season images. Packaging changes All-The-Time!” …

“In another of their television commercials, the ‘no’ campaign argues that requiring labeling would be against the national standard. (Had I been sipping something when I first heard the ad liquid would have assuredly splattered out of my nose.) Of course adding this language would be “against the national standard”; when it comes to labeling GMOs, there is no national standard and huge food science corporations are funneling big bucks into the ‘No’ campaign’s marketing to keep it that way. Funny, though, they neglect to mention the international standard. Around the world, 64 countries require this very type of retail package labeling. In fact, those very same corporations that are paying for the ‘no’ votes sell products in those 64 countries with this labeling when appropriate.”

4. A Short Letter from a Parent:

“To the editor — I’ve been called a health nut and an exercise freak, but what I’ve never been known as is a radical. For instance, I don’t think it’s radical to insist on knowing what’s in the food that I and my daughter eat. Monsanto, Bayer, Dow and Dupont — plus the Grocery Manufacturers Association, which represents more than 300 corporations, seem to think that it is a radical viewpoint, though. They’re spending millions fighting Initiative 522, which would allow all Washingtonians the right to know what’s in our food.

“My health is important to me. My daughter’s health is important to me. I can’t make informed choices if I don’t know what’s in the food she eats. As a parent, it’s my job to give her all the best that I’m able, for the few short years that I can. I jealously guard my right to do so, for my little girl’s sake. I know I’m not the only one.”

5. Information From the Washington Toxics Coalition

“We strongly believe consumers have the right to make informed decisions about the products they bring into their homes, and what they put into their bodies. These principles are what led to our decision to support Initiative 522, which will require the labeling of genetically engineered foods in Washington state.

“’Labeling genetically engineered foods is a common-sense solution that gives consumers the ability to make their own decisions.’ – Erika Schreder, Science Director, Washington Toxics Coalition

“In addition to giving consumers control over what they are feeding their families, we are concerned about the increased use of pesticides associated with GE crops. A WSU study published last year found farmers reliant on GE crops were increasing the volume of herbicides used by about 25% annually to deal with “superweeds” created by overuse. [Laura’s note: yes, that is a 25% increase in herbicide use PER YEAR. The famous Agent Orange is a herbicide produced by Monsanto. Pesticides and herbicides have been proven to cause cancer, birth defects and endocrine disruption, along with other suspected detrimental health effects.]

6. PCC Natural Market Weighs in on Labeling and I-522

PCC Natural Market in the Seattle area gives a nice breakdown of what would and would not be labeled, legal exemptions, other states’ efforts, as well as how GMO labeling would affect home gardeners and shoppers.

7. Central Co-Op in Seattle links to Recent GMO Labeling Headlines

I used to love this place when I lived in Seattle! The link above takes you to a page with recent GMO headlines, including articles that detail and explain the deception used by the NO campaign. This is an important resource for people who’ve mostly seen the scare and attack ads on TV, because it gives the facts about who’s contributing, as well as the sneakiness involved. As Sonja noted in the first article above, why the need for such deception? If the GMA (Grocery Manufacturers Association) can afford to dump millions into a NO campaign, why couldn’t they have just spent some of that money on labeling the food? Will food prices go up even without labeling due to all this money spent to hide what’s in that food? “Methinks the lady doth protest too much.”

8. Whole Foods Endorses YES on 522

This statement comes from the Pacific Northwest regional president. Whole Foods has taken a lot of heat from consumers about selling GMO foods in their “natural” stores. This statement explains why Whole Foods has openly supported the Washington Labeling Initiative since April.

Mike Adams ~ Secret List Of Food Companies Funding GMO-Labeling Opposition Slush Fund Revealed After Illegal Activities Of GMA Exposed

Thanks, G!

Almost immediately after I took my little walk in the woods during which time I actually did ask plead for Otherworldly assistance to “eradicate GMO’s from the face of our beautiful planet,” the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association (GMA) got caught red-handed running a money laundering slush fund to conceal their identities in opposing I-522 (the Washington State campaign for mandatory GMO labels). [UPDATE: I forgot to add that part of my request specifically included “the unveiling of anyone secretly working for a hidden pro-GMO agenda.”] I’m not saying my time in the woods had anything to do with this, but it wouldn’t be the first time I petitioned and honored the Unseen’s only to find an immediately tangible, “real world” result. In fact, it happens so often that David always says to me, “We need the eggs, dear,” in reference to the following joke:

“My brother thinks he’s a chicken.”

“What?! Why don’t you do something about it?”

“We need the eggs.”

Anyway, Mike Adams frequently ridicules magick, elves and faeries, but, personally, I say, “Hey, whatever works.” Whatever the reasoning behind these corrupt corporations getting caught red-handed, they got caught, and you can read the list of whom to boycott below:

Mike Adams ~ Secret List Of Food Companies Funding GMO-Labeling Opposition Slush Fund Revealed After Illegal Activities Of GMA Exposed

(NaturalNews) As Natural News reported yesterday, the Grocery Manufacturers Association got caught red-handed violating Washington state fair election laws by running a money laundering slush fund designed to conceal the identities of food companies giving money to block I-522.

The CEO of the GMA, Pamela Bailey, reportedly told donors in an email that their identities would be hidden from the public, thereby shielding them from any public backlash even while their money would be used to try to buy the election and defeat GMO labeling (so that consumers would be left in the dark about what they’re buying).

In response to this, the Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson accused the GMA of violating state law, and the AG’s office asked a Superior Court to issue restraining order to force the GMA to comply with state election laws.

Just one day after this scandal surfaced, the GMA apparently decided to stop violating the law and disclose the list of companies that funneled money into its secret slush fund. That list is published below. You can also find the list at HeraldNet.com.

It goes without saying that all these companies are now subject to a lifetime boycott. The GMA itself has now destroyed its own credibility by engaging in mafia-style illegal activities that discredit itself as well as all its members. We have now entered an era where food companies will knowingly violate the law in their desperate attempt to block GMO labeling and hide genetically engineered ingredients in their toxic, disease-causing foods.

Secret slush fund donors revealed

The companies that funneled money into the GMA’s money laundering slush fund are:

Abbott Nutrition
Bimbo Bakeries USA
Bruce Foods Corp.
Bumble Bee Foods, LLC
Bunge North America, Inc.
Bush Brothers & Co.
Campbell Soup Co.
Cargill Inc.
Clement Pappas & Co. Inc.
The Clorox Co. (owner of Burt’s Bees brand)
The Coca-Cola Co. (owner of Odwalla)
ConAgra Foods
Dean Foods Co. (owner of Horizon milk)
Del Monte Foods Co.
Flowers Foods, Inc.
General Mills, Inc. (owned of Larabar)
The Hershey Co.
The Hillshire Brands Co.
Hormel Foods Corp.
The J.M. Smucker Co.
Kellogg Co. (owner of Pop-Tarts)
Knouse Foods Cooperative, Inc.
Land O’Lakes, Inc.
McCormick & Co., Inc
Mondelez Global, LLC.
Moody Dunbar, Inc.
Nestle USA, Inc.
Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc.
PepsiCo, Inc. (owner of Naked Juice)
Pinnacle Foods Group, LLC.
Rich Products Corp.
Shearer’s Foods, Inc.
Sunny Delight Beverages Co.
Welch Foods, Inc.

Share this list with others and encourage them to boycott all these brands, too. These are companies that actively participated in an illegal slush fund deception to try to buy the I-522 election by deceiving voters.

That the GMA would actively launch such a slush fund operation just proves that the conventional food industry in America has no ethics whatsoever and will actively pursue illegal activities in order to keep consumers ignorant and confused.

Yes on 522 Strategy ~ A Rebuttal

Yesterday, Jon Rappoport published a valid-question-riddled piece called “Are GMO Ballot Measures Just Another Covert Op?” Regular blog readers know that I am a fan of the GMO ban rather than labeling; however, I’m also a realist that the fluoridated, brainwashed, chemtrailed, GMO’d, drugged and hypnotized state of the vast majority of US citizens makes that highly, highly unlikely as an initial goal. Not gonna happen here, not right now.

Based on face-to-face conversations I’ve had with lawmakers to educate them about GMO’s, as well as witnessing the amazing awakenings of people once they clean up their diets, I do have hope that mandatory GMO labels could provide the catalyst for a larger awakening and eventual demands for bans. (To the sound of virtually zero media fanfare, Hawaii County recently banned all GMO crops except the papaya already growing there, so signs of sanity do occasionally arise.) When I spoke with lawmakers in Wisconsin about raw dairy and GMO’s, I watched them literally curl their lips and push back their snacks when I confirmed what they had in front of them contained genetically modified organisms. They were completely grossed out. Once people understand the perversion that GMO’s are, what they do to the body, and how they poison the environment as well as the person consuming them, no one wants that crap.

Until some of the fog clears away, though, labels at the very least make people aware of something they’re too innocent to realize even exists to know to avoid. Once they begin avoiding it, they begin to avoid other things. For many people, eating organic food acts as the gateway to Matrix-free thoughts, emotions, decisions and living. It doesn’t happen overnight. I wish it had happened decades ago, but I have seen it happen many, many, many times with clients, friends, and even family members whom I never would have expected to commit to organic foods. Their dietary shifts have awakened new levels of awareness in all sorts of areas, not just food.

I personally know the videographer for the Yes on 522 campaign in Washington State. He’s an incredibly sincere guy with a functioning BS detector. Would he (and I, too) love for the world to exist where we could all just call a spade a spade? Of course. But the audience for this campaign is the general public. (Click here to see some recent interviews with that public about “Obamacare vs. the Affordable Care Act,” and yes, they are the exact same thing, although you’d never know it from these “informed” voters! Not only do they have zero appreciation for the subtleties of the healthcare debate; they are convinced they’re unequivocally for and against the exact same law. This is the voting population we’re dealing with.)

Below I’ve copied in the comment Mitch left on Jon’s blog. Apologies for typos, but these people are sincere, and given the underhanded tactics of Monsanto and the ridiculously easily hypnotized masses, I believe their strategy has merit. Ultimately, banning GMO’s is the way to go, but really? In the US, with the average manipulated and uninformed voter? At least get more of the population aware of the effects of GMO’s. Once people discover the superior taste, nutrition, quality and clarity of local, organic, real foods, the veils begin to drop.

Mitch also assures me that there is a grassroots information campaign beyond the official campaign videos and flyers. Even if a movement gets co-opted to varying degrees like Occupy and Anonymous, there’s still potential that the co-opting backfires. In this world of conspiracies, charades and sheer absurdity, it’s tempting to become so cynical that we grow suspicious of everyone. Now that’s a psyop! Divide and Conquer has so far worked reliably well in this country. Except when it doesn’t. Yes on 522: let’s do this!

Mitch Mattraw:

I’m the videographer for all online content for the yeson522 initiative, I work closely with Elizabeth Larder.

Jon, I love you man! have followed you for a long time and………no, 522 it’s not a soft op, David ‘Dr’ Bronner has given $2M, as you know, no one is more of a warrior to push back against corporate control of our society than David, he know this would be a soft sell campaign from the get go and yet he went all in.

Yes, it’s been frustrating to have to leave on the cutting room floor heartfelt pleas from incredible farmer’s, some of the worlds best chef’s, food distributor’s, etc to keep the message simple for Joe over medicated, GMO, chemtrail, fluoride poisoned Joe, to let him know his beer won’t go up in price, the campaign hasn’t gone hardcore to expose the horror’s of GMO’s as Monsanto & Co would brand them as environmental terrorists and hammer that message home 24/7, game over yes?

So now, they’re fighting it out about transparency, choice and cost, going toe to toe, Monsanto is just waiting for a slip up, for the campaign to shift into a more activist posture, they’re praying to Lucifer for this so they can bring out their shill scientists plus the eco terrorists card, once you bring out the science guys in the lab coats on TV, American’s loose all sense of judgment, they’re scientists they must be right! And so, they haven’t gone down that ave.

Yes it is a soft sell so even in the end if 10s of thousand’s of people wake up to the horrors of GMO’s from this, go further with it etc then it’s a success and not necessarily taking energy, resources away from other full on activist campaigns, the two easily complement each other, it’s not one vs another which I feel your not seeing Jon, although it is true in England they’ve had labeling forever and Monsanto does just fine there but this is different, people woke up one day years ago to find labels on their food, easy come, easy go?

This is being fought for every step of the way so sure it’s a soft sell but when those labels are rolled out in 2014, a whole state is aware and proud that they participated to make this happen so that’s alot of energy moved for positive outcome where there wasn’t any discourse on a large scale before.

Another extremely important factor that I feel you’re not seeing, this is a state breaking from the ranks of federal control, yes, it’s a soft sell but Washington Sate is showing the rest of the country it has the spine to give the finger to the fed’s on legalizing pot, equality in marriage and now this, we will probably pay dearly for this with some HARRP induced earthquake like Colorado has paid dearly for their continuing defiance to big brother, do you still [think] this is soft sell?

Blessings and love to all.

Beware the King Amendment

As consumers continue to demand Mandatory GMO Labeling laws at the state level, Monsatan and other biotech giants are trying to sneak in something called “The King Amendment,” which would eliminate states’ rights to mandate GMO labeling, thereby nullifying any anti-GMO laws passed at the state level. Not only does this outrageous (yet somehow not surprising) amendment violate the will and rights of consumers across the U.S., but it would violate state sovereignty as well. As usual, the Farm Bill attempts to derail and defund natural, organic farmers as well as defraud health and freedom oriented consumers in favor of biotech giants that few people really want around anymore. I guess you don’t get voted the world’s most evil corporation without trying to earn that badge of corruption and abomination.

Here’s the text of a MoveOn Petition:

“I want you, as my elected official in Congress, to know that you will lose my vote, regardless of your party affiliation, if you support the King Amendment, or any other amendment in the 2013 Farm Bill that would nullify states’ rights to label genetically modified organisms (GMOs). I belong to the more than 90% of Americans who want what consumers in more than 60 other countries already have: mandatory GMO-labeling laws. Even more important, I expect you to represent me, not a corporation, and to protect the more than 225-year-old right of states, counties, and cities to enact laws that protect the health and environment of local citizens. This isn’t just about GMO labeling. It’s about states’ rights.”

Click here to email your Congressperson.

Petition Background

“Monsanto has been poisoning our food and environment for nearly 20 years. Consumers are finally fighting back, by demanding labels on GMO foods. Will Monsanto try to take away our right to pass state GMO labeling laws? Monsanto already slipped a rider into the emergency Continuing Resolution, giving the biotech giant immunity from federal law. Now, there is talk of an amendment or rider to the 2013 Farm Bill that could take away states’ rights to pass GMO labeling laws.”

Again, if you care about this issue or your right to know — at all — then please click here to email your “Representative.” Make ’em earn their keep! Let ’em know that we are keeping an eye on them. If you’re involved in any kind of GMO labeling project at the local or state level, please make sure to follow through about the King Amendment and spread the word to the right people. Otherwise, all your hard work could be undone with the stroke of a sneaky, corrupt vote.
