Tell Them: No Protecting Monsanto!

USDA secretary Tom Vilsack has directed his Advisory Committee on Biotechnology and 21st Century Agriculture to come up with a plan to compensate organic and conventional farmers whose crops become contaminated because of genetically engineered foods.

While it might seem that Monsanto would have to treat organic farmers fairly and pay them for the damage caused by the contamination, it is more likely that what is intended is really a new protection scheme for Monsanto—a legal shelter that will limit Monsanto’s future monetary damages. If the Committee’s plan denies farmers the right to file lawsuits, this would become a way to protect the the biotech farming industry from potentially huge financial losses.

Please contact USDA secretary Tom Vilsack and tell him America will not stand for any of USDA’s attempt to shield the GE industry from liability when their products contaminate surrounding organic and conventional crops. We need to nip this in the bud now before it gains momentum.
