Stop the Monsanto Protection Act!


Once again, Monsanto and the biotech industry are working behind
closed doors to undermine your basic rights. This time they’ve gone too
far! As your Senators debate the Continuing Resolution spending bill,
biotech lobbyists have desperately snuck provisions into the spending
bill to make sure their new GMO crops can evade any serious scientific
or regulatory review.

In the past, legal advocates have successfully won in court the right
to halt the sale and planting of unapproved GMO crops while the
approval of those crops is under review by a federal judge. This
dangerous new House provision, which we're calling the Monsanto
Protection Act, would strip judges of their constitutional mandate to
protect consumer rights and the environment, while opening up the
floodgates for the planting of new untested genetically engineered
crops, endangering farmers, consumers and the environment.

Join us in putting a stop to the Monsanto Protection Act!



A copy of your letter of support will be delivered to your Senator:




Dear Senator,

I am writing to urge you to strike the “farmer assurance provision”,
Section 735, currently included in the Senate Continuing Resolution
spending bill being considered by Congress.

Though wrapped in a
“farmer-friendly” package, this provision is simply an industry ploy to
continue to sell genetically engineered (GE) seeds even when a court of
law has found they were approved by USDA illegally. It is unnecessary
and an unprecedented attack on U.S. judicial review. Congress should not
be meddling with the judicial review process based solely on the
special interest of a handful of companies.

The judicial review
process is an essential element of U.S law and serves as a vital check
on any Federal Agency decision that may negatively impact human health,
the environment or livelihoods. Yet this provision seeks an end-run
around such judicial review by preemptively deciding that industry can
set its own conditions to continue to sell biotech seeds, even if a
court may find them to have been wrongfully approved.

The
provision further forces USDA to immediately approve any permits for
continued planting the industry requests, putting industry completely in
charge by allowing for a “back door approval” mechanism. USDA’s duty is
to protect the interests of all farmers and the environment, a duty
that would be eliminated by this provision.

The provision is
also completely unnecessary. No farmer has ever had his or her crops
destroyed. Every court to decide these issues has carefully weighed the
interests of farmers, as is already required by law.
I urge you to
demand that Appropriations Chairwoman Mikulski pull this dangerous and
unconstitutional rider, and to support any amendment that would strike
the rider from the Continuing Resolution.

Sincerely,

[Your Name]

I bought a seed vault. For less then 70.00 I got over 50k veg seeds, all heritage so they will produce the same product every year, as long as I'm careful to save the first fruit seeds every year and with proper storage I should be set and also able to give away or sell the seeds if it ever comes down to it. BTW Neno love your new garden.
