“MILLIONS AGAINST MONSANTO”
Get on the Bus! December 10th. Organic Consumers Association is organizing busloads of people to attend the hearing in Washington, D.C., followed by a rally and an organic lunch. But if there is to be an impact and attract the attention of Congress and the media, they need a minimum of 1000 people to be there.
The battle for the right to know if your food contains genetically modified organisms (GMOs) could come to a screeching halt with the signing of one bill in Congress.
That bill needs to be stopped in its tracks.
H.R. 4432—the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) ACT—was introduced by Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) at the bidding of Monsanto, Big Food and the Koch Brothers. If passed, H.R. 4432 will strip your state of the right to pass a GMO labeling law.
The DARK ACT will have its first hearing on Capitol Hill, on December 10.
“If we don’t turn out in numbers to protest this bill, our voice could be silenced.”
Here’s how you can help. OCA will help pay for a bus from your state to Washington D.C., if you can fill the bus. Right now we have bus captains trying to fill buses in Pennsylvania, Central New Jersey, Detroit, Minneapolis, Chicago, Maine, West Virginia and Maryland. If you live in one of those areas, OR HAVE FRIENDS OR FAMILY THAT LIVE IN THOSE AREAS, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call our office at 218-226-4164.
If you live outside those areas, and want to organize a bus, please use the above contact information. To attend the protest, RSVP here and we’ll contact you if a bus is organized in your area.
