Back to Keep Organic Gardening Legal

American Small Farmers under attack

The 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 โ€“ 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 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 are many YouTube videos and websites on this subject. I urge you all to please look further into this. The name on this outrageous food plan is Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009 (bill HR 875).

PLEASE 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.

The best thing to do is go to http://pr1.netatlantic.com/t/9661579/7783193/598244/0/

All you have to do is put in your zip and it will give you your congressperson and how to get in touch with them.

When you call their office someone will answer the phone, politely and respectfully just tell them that you are calling to express your views on HR 875. Tell them your views, they'll take your name and address and pass your comments along to the congressperson. The following link http://pr1.netatlantic.com/t/9661579/7783193/598245/0/ is a list of the U.S. senators with their contact info.

Thank you all for taking such quick action on this important threat to our health and wellness.
