ACTION ALERT (OCA, Organic Bytes #466,
Ready for GMO Labels, Hillary?
It’s official. Hillary Clinton is running for president.
She’s also an official supporter of Monsanto and GMO crops—unless we convince her to listen to the more than 90 percent of Americans (and voters) who have made it clear we want labels on foods containing GMOs.
We already know from her speech (watch Hillary promote Monsanto approximately 29 minutes in) to the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) convention in San Diego in June 2014, that Hillary supports genetic engineering. But she's so far managed to dodge the question of whether or not she supports state GMO labeling laws or the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act, a bill recently reintroduced in Congress, that would preempt state GMO labeling laws. Or whether she supports the Boxer-DeFazio bill for mandatory labeling of GMOs.
Love her or hate her, you know that Hillary stands a good chance of being the next president of the United States.
You also know that the World Health Organization recently declared glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, a probable human carcinogen. And that the majority of GMO crops are sprayed liberally with Roundup.
It’s time to think big. It’s time to make this a campaign issue. It’s time to demand that Hillary tell us where she stands on GMO labeling.
It’s time to tell her where you stand.

TAKE ACTION: Tell Hillary Clinton: Support GMO Labeling and Public Health, Not Monsanto!
