Back in September of 2013, public pressure forced Congress to block the so-called "Monsanto Protection Act" from becoming law.

But, the GMO industry didn't give up on their fight to deny Americans the right to know what's in our food.

Last week, the Center for Food Safety issued a press release warning that "the Monsanto Protection Act is back, and [it's] worse than ever."

The original legislation would have stripped federal courts of their power to block the sale or planting of genetically-modified crops. The new language would also ban GMO labeling and prevent state and local governments from restricting genetically-engineered crops in any way.

If approved, House Resolution 1599 would make it nearly impossible to regulate GMOs in any way, even if and when those crops are deemed dangerous for consumption.

No matter what your views are on genetically-modified crops, We The People should never give up our rights to monitor and control what ends up in our food supply.

We stopped the Monsanto Protection Act once, and we can do it again. Call Congress and tell them to say "No" to H.R. 1599.

I can believe in science when they tell us that you can split atoms and release energy. I can even believe in science when they say you can create electrical energy from splitting atoms that is cleaner than burning coal for electricity. But I don't believe in science when they say it can be done safely or without incident. The same with GMOs. They don't know all the variables to be able to make the safety claims, esp. when people and nature can be so unpredictable.

Besides, their techniques for creating GMOs are crude, primitive, and paid for by big business that only wants to make a big profit from it. That I believe in more.

I can believe in science, but I can't believe in human kind to use it honestly and responsibly.

This underscores that what the USA has for an economy is not so much capitalism as it is another beast altogether that as of yet does not have a proper designation though some call it "crony capitalism" and others call it corporate-tocracy.

I just call this "organized crime".

Monsanto is going to make it so nothing will grow on the land except their seeds. Once that is accomplished, they will control the world. Considering this is the ultimate deception which leads to domination of everyone eventually, maybe the people who say monsanto is monsatan are right.

When the TPP passes, people's rights won't "officially" matter anyway.
Monsanto can sue the whole world if they want to, to get their evil way!

Monsanto can KMA they aren't going to get away with it, too many free thinkers and pissed off people. It won't happen because if they try, something out of the ordinary will happen to them. There are too many spiritual thinkers out there who can create havoc simply by thinking about it. hint 'what you think about you bring about' concepts. In this place, this holographic reality, all things are possible. It's scientific, and therefore plausible. I wish i was a child again, it was so much easier to create reality with my thoughts, so maybe more people should think like a child, it works. No i'm not insane just very aware, and verbal when conveying thought to ink.

Lol, what are these people waiting to do something already? There aren't enough tragedies in this world caused big big corps?

Aren't you guys aware farmers in India are driven to suicide because of Monsanto?


If they can do anything about this or anything else, they did a bad job at it for the last decades.

I've never seen you make so much sense. You say some crap occasionally. So do I, it's what makes us human, but this little gem is prophetic.

If we don't stop the nonsense now either Monsanto, or somebody else, will own us all eventually.

Strange isnt it; when law makers want to pass a law and we object they say "if you've done nothing wrong you've got nothing to hide have you?" but these same people do not say to Monsanto, 'if your food is safe you have nothing to hide have you?'

Strange also that in a democracy, the govt has an obligation to provide good government which is in relation to food, making sure the food the nations people eat is safe. What is also odd is why the govt considers the rights of one corporation to over rides the rights of the citizenry to know whether or not they are eating GMO food. After all, they always want us to make health food choices don't they?

Yea sure we do but we don't believe in junk science or corrupted science. If Monsanto have nothing to hide why do not want us to know if the food we buy contains GMO?

a reply to: awareness10 I wish that was true. I don't think there are enough free thinkers in this world. Many states have tried to pass GMO labeling laws and failed. I don't know about others states but in California, we campaigned hard. I spent many hours on the phone and passing out literature as a volunteer. In the end there just wasn't enough people who were knowledgeable and cared enough to make it to the polls.

Its not science, its POISONING the food supply. GMO seeds =poison, Roundup= MAJOR poison, DDT = poison, Agent Orange = poison, these are all MONSANTO products!

Mindless fear mongering.
