We regret to inform you, but late last week Congress succeeded in passing Section 735, aka the Monsanto Protection Act, in the Continuing Resolution spending bill.
We need you to contact President Obama before he signs it and HR 933 becomes law.
With the passage of the Monsanto Protection Act in Congress, biotech lobbyists are one step closer to making sure that their new GMO crops can evade any serious scientific or regulatory review.
This dangerous provision, which we’re calling the Monsanto Protection Act, strips judges of their constitutional mandate to protect consumer rights and the environment, while opening up the floodgates for the planting of new untested genetically engineered crops, endangering farmers, consumers and the environment.
We are asking that you take action here and then call President Obama and Congress to shut down their email and phone lines until Section 735 is removed from the continuing resolution. Join us in putting a stop to the Monsanto Protection Act!
