Food is, as we have been saying for some time, the central battle for freedom and survival. “Change”, which sounds great, has, in fact, become the mantra of those who seek corporate triumph over independent producers – and it’s happening around food. The mechanism is simple: a set of bills ostensibly devoted to “food safety” and “food security” — and a plan to put Big Agribiz supporters in charge.
In charge of what? Your food and mine – it’s supply, farming, production, food quality, irradiation, Codex on your dinner table, unlabeled GMOs and other profitable, but lethal, corporate-friendly food strategies. Through appointments and legislation, the change is coming fast and furious which could even make our own family farms and gardens the site of criminal activity if we attempt to grow our own food or produce and sell it.
So sure are they of victory that the President of change is about to appoint Michael Taylor, a lawyer for, and former executive at Monsanto, to head the empowered “food (sic)k safety (sic)k” agency.
Today’s eAction Item is quite simple: TELL THE PRESIDENT “NO” TO TAYLOR!
Time is short and the issue is of immense importance.
Urgent 3-Part Action Item:
Step 1: Email the President NOW:
Step 2: Call the White House switchboard at 202-456-1414 and the comment center 202-456-1111. Let’s keep those phones ringing!
Step 3: Tell Congress “NO!” to all of the fake food “safety” bills. They provide neither real, wholesome food nor safety:
Politicians often come up with bad ideas. These are not just bad ideas: they are a catastrophically bad ideas for BOTH health and freedom. In fact, we are facing nothing short of food tyranny that will kill not only organic farming, but lots of people as well, along with the entire private farming sector. Your own gardens are at risk.
The President’s appointment of someone so closely associated with industrialized “food” is “change” in exactly the wrong direction.
Let’s demand real change: that Congress and the President change directions!
