Tell Obama: No pesticide lobbyist nominees

Sunday, December 06, 2009

I can't believe this!!!!! Read on:

Somehow a top official from CropLife -- the powerful chemical industry trade group that went after Michelle Obama's organic garden -- has been nominated to serve as America's chief agricultural negotiator for international trade. If confirmed by the Senate, Isi Siddiqui, who has spent the last several years of his career fighting various restrictions and bans on environmentally hazardous pesticides, would bring that inappropriately aggressive stance on broadening pesticide use to the White House and influence trade negotiations with Europe and the developing world.

I just signed a petition to ask President Obama to drop the nomination of Isi Siddiqui as chief agricultural negotiator in the Office of the United States Trade Representative. I hope you will, too. Please have a look and take action.
