Sign the Petition to President Barack Obama, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk

This petition closed over 1 year ago

In early September, a coalition of groups including the Made in the USA Foundation and R-CALF USA, filed a lawsuit against the WTO in Denver's U.S. District Court hoping to get a court order that WTO does not have authority to overrule U.S. law. In conjunction with that lawsuit, we're circulating this petition to challenge the WTO's right to intimidate the United States into weakening our Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) law. We hope to convince the President, the Agriculture Secretary, and the U.S. Trade Representative to protect our nation's sovereignty and reaffirm that accurate labeling is a consumer right.
