Genetically Engineered Alfalfa Has Been Approved, But President Obama Can Have the Final Say
Demand President Obama Stop GE Alfalfa!
Yesterday afternoon, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack approved Monsanto’s genetically engineered alfalfa for widespread planting this spring. This is outrageous and wrong, and it will hurt organic farmers.
Demand that President Obama reverse this disastrous approval.
The USDA decision to allow GE alfalfa to be planted unleashes another unnecessary genetically engineered crop into our environment and puts organic farmers at risk of widespread GE contamination. The agency did no real assessment of the harm that GE alfalfa could do, and caved to pressure from big agribusiness to approve this genetically engineered crop before the spring planting season.
President Obama is the last line of defense, and can stop the widespread planting of Monsanto’s GE alfalfa. Take action now to demand President Obama stop this disastrous approval.
Thanks for taking action,
