Everyone small farms need your help. If you can take just a few minutes of your time and address this many of us out here in rural America would be very grateful. The USDA released its draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on Monsanto's GE, Roundup Ready alfalfa on December 14, 2009, and the comment period is now open until March 3, 2010. I cannot stress enough the importance of people making their voices heard in this matter. We need to tell USDA we care about freedom and liberty enough to refuse to accept a giant taking over control of every seed of life by contaminating all seeds. Alfalfa seeds are pollinated USDAs preliminary determination is to once again deregulate GE alfalfa without any limitations or protections for farmers or the environment. USDA has completely dismissed the fact that contamination will threaten export and domestic markets and organic meat and dairy products. USDA is claiming that there is no evidence that consumers care about such GE contamination of organic! The USDA is also claiming that consumers will not reject GE contamination of organic alfalfa if the contamination is unintentional or if the transgenic material is not transmitted to the end milk or meat product, despite the fact that more than 75% of consumers believe that they are purchasing products without GE ingredients when they buy organic. My ass! When I buy something labeled organic I fully expect that it does not have any genetic modifications in it. The USDA claims that Monsantos seed contracts require measures sufficient to prevent genetic contamination, and that there is no evidence to the contrary. But in the CFS lawsuit requiring this document, the Court found that contamination had already occurred in the fields of several Western states with these same business-as-usual practices in place! USDA is lying and Monsanto heads the team there at USDA. This needs to stop NOW! Tell USDA That You DO Care About Genetic Contamination of Organic Crops and Food! Tell them that they have an obligation to protect our environment from this contamination! Docket No. APHIS-2007-0044 Below is the sample letter with our comments in it: You can access this via this link to easily send one of your own and print it to send one by mail: Take Action: Tell USDA That You Care About GE Contamination of Organic Food! We will be sending this letter out by regular US mail also. While you are there at True Food network you can also write your congressman and ask for protection from being used as a guinea pig via the food chain.
