Hopefully Not the Future of Organic Farming

Let's not kill organic farming.

Dear Food friends,

The United States 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 two weeks before people realize what is happening.

The main backer and lobbyist is chemical and genetic engineering giant Monsanto and also 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 there will be no more heirloom clean seeds but only Monsanto genetically altered seeds that are now credibly causing with unexpected diseases in humans.

The name on this outrageous food plan is
The Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009 (HR 875)


THIS IS REAL, FOLKS! PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL CONCERNED ON YOUR MAILING LISTS
AND EMAIL, CALL OR WRITE YOUR SENATE REPRESENTATIVES TODAY!

So please 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 is not a massive outcry. They have been bought by the lobbyists. They only fear your voice and your vote.

The best thing to do is go to www.house.gov/writerep. All you have to do is put in your zipcode and it will give you the name of your congressperson and information about how to get in touch with them. You can call, email or write them. The following link is a list of the U.S. Senators and their contact info:
