Definitely no pesticide lobbyists in the government

As it may have come to your attention, President Obama has nominated CropLife executive Islam Siddiqui for the position of chief agricultural negotiator, in the Office of the United States Trade Representative.  I urge you to oppose his confirmation, now.  Under Siddiqui, the U.S.D.A. attempted to weaken or kill the original organic standards by overriding guidelines proposed by the organic advisory board.  The U.S.D.A. organic label proposed by his office would have allowed the use of sewage sludge, irradiation, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and even some synthetic pesticides.  Only a public outcry convinced the U.S.D.A. to reverse that decision.  Please, oppose Siddiqui's confirmation, now.
