On February 24th, we received the disappointing news that federal Judge Naomi Buchwald dismissed the case of family farmers versus Monsanto. In Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association (OSGATA) et al v. Monsanto, farmers who grow our food sought, once and for all, the protection of the U.S. courts against Monsanto’s abusive patent infringement lawsuits.
In what can only be called a travesty of justice, Judge Buchwald sided with Monsanto, stating that the farmers overestimated the threat posed by Monsanto’s genetic contamination of their crops. Buchwald’s ruling was an insult to farmers everywhere and we believe that her flawed assessment that organic and non-GMO farmers imagined the very real threat by Monsanto.
Please take a moment to tell America's farmers why you support them. We'll deliver your message to farmers before the hearing to let them know that you care deeply about their cause:
I support America's farmers in their pursuit of justice and their right to grow food without fear and intimidation. It's time for family farmers to have their day in court and put an end to this unjust harassment.
