Tell the USDA it is NOT okay to let the GMO Industry conduct its own environmental impact studies


The USDA is allowing the GMO industry to conduct its own environmental impact studies (on Monsanto's Roundup Ready sugar beets) - proving that they are allowing the GMO industry to self-regulate. 

Allowing these studies to be conducted from within the GMO industry may not show the (true) impact of the GMO's that have overtaken our agricultural system.  The USDA is putting profit and industry ahead of the safety of our food systems, our personal health, and our environment.  The continuation of this relationship between big business and our government is putting US at risk - and we must tell them we have had enough.

Let us stand up together and tell our government that we are not going to sit back while they hand over our food security to corporations like Monsanto.  Let us stand up for safe, healthy, secure, and sustainable agriculture - and stop this criminal relationship between our government and these giant corporations.

Letter to
The President of the United States
It is becoming increasing obvious that our food systems are at risk and that the public wants sustainable agricultural practices to be your priority.

Why are you allowing the GMO industry to conduct its own environmental impact studies?

Allowing these studies to be conducted from within the GMO industry may not show the (true) impact that GMO's have on our agricultural system, our health, and our environment. Please stop putting profit and industry ahead of the safety of our food systems, our personal health, and our environment. The continuation of this relationship between you and big business is putting US at risk - and we have had enough.

We are standing together to tell you that we are not going to sit back while you hand over our food security to corporations like Monsanto. We are standing for safe, healthy, secure, and sustainable agriculture. We are asking you to listen to our voices instead of responding to the pocket books of corporations.

Please do no allow the GMO industry to self-regulate - revoke the decision that allows the GMO industry to conduct its own environmental studies. Lead us morally and powerfully into a sustainable future.
