A so-called 'Monsanto rider' was quietly slipped into the multi-billion dollar FY 2013 Agricultural Appropriations bill. It would 'require' the Secretary of Agriculture to grant a temporary permit for the planting or cultivation of a genetically engineered crop, even if a federal court has ordered the planting be halted until an Environmental Impact Statement is completed.
I urge the readers of this Blog to signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:
"Stop the Monsanto riders. Unless a citizen's army of farmers and consumers can stop them, Congress is likely to ram these dangerous riders through any day now."To sign the petition click here.
