RE: Save Organic Farming
(Save My Backyard Garden!)
I am sending this to folks I know who love to garden and care about our food supply. Please check this out it is just unbelievable. I sent emails to both my senators asking them to vote against this bill. Check it out and perhaps do the same. Send it on to everyone you know!
Protect your food supply: ACT NOW.
Subject: Save Organic Farming (Save My Backyard Garden!)
Please tell everyone who wants organic foods.....
US House and Senate are about (in a week and a half) to
vote on bill that will OUTLAW ORGANIC FARMING (bill HR 875).
There is an enormous rush to get this into law within the
next 2 weeks before people realize what is happening.
Main backer and lobbyist is Monsanto – chemical and genetic engineering giant corporation (and Cargill, ADM, and about 35 other related agri-giants).
This bill will require
organic farms to use specific fertilizers and poisonous insect sprays dictated by the
newly formed agency to "make sure there is no danger [read between the lines...think critically] to
the public food supply". This will include backyard
> gardens that grow food only for a family and not for sales.
If this passes then NO more heirloom clean seeds but only Monsanto genetically altered seeds that are now showing up with unexpected diseases in humans.
> There is a video on the subject.
> And another one:
> The name on this outrageous food plan is:
- Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009 (bill HR 875).
- THIS IS REAL, FOLKS! PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL CONCERNED ON YOUR MAILING LISTS & CALL YOUR SENATE REPRESENTATIVES TODAY!
- Get on that phone and burn up the wires.
- Get anyone else you can to do the same thing.
- The House and Senate WILL pass this if they are not massively threatened with loss of their position.... They only fear your voice and your vote.
