Stop Monsanto’s secret plan to Kill GMO Labeling!

Breaking: Senate Announces hearing for GMOs in Agriculture Committee - Oct. 21st!  - Take action! Right now Monsanto and biotech lobbyists are scrambling in Washington DC to try to find enough U.S. Senators to pass a deceptive bill that will kill states’ rights to label genetically engineered foods and give the illusion of proper oversight of their untested GMOs and toxic weedkillers.

Monsanto already succeeded in passing this bill in the House this summer — Pompeo's H.R. 1599, by a vote of 275 to 150 — and we need to make sure we stop their dangerous plan in the Senate.

We need all hands on deck to stop the ultimate Monsanto Protection Act and convince your Senators not to violate states' rights and kill GMO labeling and allow GMOs to be labeled "natural"!

This is a blatant power grab to deny Americans their basic right to know and protect flawed GMO products - and we can’t allow them to get away with it. We need your help today. Every voice counts!

To find out how your Congressman voted on House Vote 462 to pass H.R.1599 275 to 150, click here. http://nyti.ms/1TXskxV

Your Senators, the FDA and President Obama will receive a copy of your letter. Please join us today!

Dear Senator,

I support mandatory labeling of genetically engineered food and I urge you to vote NO on any Senate version of H.R. 1599, recently passed legislation in the House that undermine states' rights to pass GMO labeling laws and also preempts local elected officials in states, counties and cities from passing reasonable regulations regarding genetically engineered crops. This is an outrageous attempt at corporate protection, putting Monsanto's profits over the rights of American citizens.

Already, 64 other countries around the world inform their citizens if their food has been genetically engineered in a laboratory with simple labels, and it's time that we share that basic right.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
