Is The Nation of India Rearing To Kick Monsanto Out?

According to the Science article's author, Pallava Bagla, the panel's recommendation is being regarded by some "as the death knell of the development of genetically modified food crops in India."

Pesticide Industry Backed Opponents of GMO Labeling Get Criminal in California

Yesterday, the Yes on 37 campaign sent letters to the U.S. Department of Justice requesting a criminal investigation of the No on 37 campaign for possible fraudulent misuse of the official seal of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The No on 37 campaign affixed the FDA's seal to one of the campaign's mailers. Section 506 of the U.S. Criminal Code states: "Whoever...knowingly uses, affixes, or impresses any such fraudulently made, forged, counterfeited, mutilated, or altered seal or facsimile thereof to or upon any certificate, instrument, commission, document, or paper of any description...shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both."

If the GMO people are this obvious about lying in their politics, they must be presumed equally mendacious about their products!

Read the article and find out about these corporations and if they are hit hard in their pocket book, there might be a nice short on the horizon.

Wishing you the best,

Rachel

PS You may want to sign their petition at the end of the article warning "natural food" companies trying to stop you from knowing what products contain GMO's.

Rachel, by "the article" do you mean that for which you gave the URL? I didn't see a petition there. Do you have a direct link to the petition?

Thanks,
Saroj

Whole Foods is the Walmart of the "Natural Food" industry


Victory Trader View Post
Organic Spies conducted an undercover hidden camera sting of Whole Foods Market for selling unlabeled GMO foods.

This film shows why Whole Foods has given no money to Proposition 37, the California ballot initiative to label genetically engineered foods.

Whole Foods has sold unlabeled GMOs created by Monsanto for over a decade.

========================
Excellent report!!!!

When I lived in Evanston, IL a few years ago they swooped in and bought up all the independent Natural Food stores creating a monopoly on the market. I detest them and refuse to shop there.

Hi Saroj,

I couldn't find the post you are referring too but am posting some links you can sign petitions:

This week the House of Representatives will consider a provision to House Agricultural Appropriations Bill that will fundamentally undermine the concept of judicial review. Hidden under the guise of a “Farmer Assurance Provision” (Section 733), the provision strips the rights of federal courts to halt the sale and planting of genetically engineered crops during the legal appeals process. (We really need to change our government so corporations can't use the system to their benefit: loopholes. Government and corporations should be separate just as church and state are!)

Food Democracy Now | Stop the Monsanto Protection Act!

Food Democracy has a lot of important petitions to sign:

Food Democracy Now

Thanking those companies that support labeling GMO's

Tell the USDA to stop rubber stamping GMO's: NO MORE GMO's etc.

You may want to join their email newsletter and if you give the number of the post you are quoting, I may be able to find the petition you are referring too.

Thank you,

Rachel

PS I have stopped buying from Wholefoods also, I buy from Mother's health food store. They are small, non-corporate and have better prices. Sprouts is adding more GMO foods also, so that is good. I have a box of organic veggies delivered each week from Farm Fresh To You , so I support buying directly from our organic farmers.
