President of the United States

Stop Monsanto's Takeover at the USDA!

    1. Petition by

      Food & Water Watch

The USDA approved Monsanto's genetically engineered sugar beets just a week after it approved GE alfalfa. The Obama Administration is letting corporate agribusiness call the shots. Enough is enough.  Tell President Obama to stop pushing Monsanto's agenda.

Take action to stop the approval for Monsanto's GE alfalfa and sugar beets.

      Stop all this foolishness Mr. President. Your family and the rest of us that you took a pledge to serve and protect, are also affected by this unethical genetic manipulation of our foods and the plants we feed animals. Soon there will be nothing healthy left that anyone in this country can buy to eat. Monsanto has created a nightmare that should not to be tolerated. Please rein them in.

      What people are failing to understand on the public and government level is that by allowing Monsanto to do whatever it wants with a poor amount of oversight, we are going to change the genetic face of this planet irreversibly. Monsanto MUST be stopped.
