"Monsanto Protection Act" Signed Into Law

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Email from Mike Adams:
"In an outrageous betrayal of all Americans, President Obama just signed the so-called "Monsanto Protection Act" into law."
"This law gives Monsanto AUTHORITY OVER FEDERAL COURTS and allows it to plant experimental GMO crops even if they pose an extreme risk to human health and environmental health."

The Monsanto Protection Act is part of HR 933, the Continuing Resolution (CR) to keep the govt running thru Sept.

Furor Growing Against Obama Over 'Monsanto Protection Act' - International Business Times

"The bill "effectively bars federal courts from being able to halt the sale or planting of GMO or GE crops and seeds, no matter what health consequences from the consumption of these products may come to light in the future."

A Food Democracy Now petition states:
"With the Senate passage of the Monsanto Protection Act, biotech lobbyists are one step closer to making sure that their new GMO crops can evade any serious scientific or regulatory review."
"This dangerous provision, the Monsanto Protection Act, strips judges of their constitutional mandate to protect consumer and farmer rights and the environment, while opening up the floodgates for the planting of new untested genetically engineered crops, endangering farmers, citizens and the environment."

This Monsanto Protection Act, says the Center for Food Safety, is "an unprecedented attack on U.S. judicial review of agency actions" and "a major violation of the separation of powers."

    I am shocked to read this. Many other countries have prohibited GMO. I am very concerned about the lack of GMO availability for some crops.

    Thank you for putting this info out there. You have restored my faith that not all people are apathetic to what is going on and being perpetuated by our politicians who seem to have abandoned the American People's safety in regard to health issues.

    Trudeau's book stated clearly how they are closing and going after heath food stores, natural cures and even trying to patent Vitamin C (which in Europe in supervised massive does can even cure Cancer). The Pharmeceutical companies permeate our advertising, have taken over and employed by our FDA which is supposed to be protecting and not promoting drugs and allow the Pharmeceutical companies to buy the Medical Schools to teach doctors to medicate instead of teaching them nutrition and alternative medicine to healing except drugs.

    Besides the poisons that I government allows to go into the feed of our chickens and cows that is carcinagenic to humans and the altering genetics of our food we are in a sorry state. In my area we are trying to sponsor co oper situations for organic food growing and hopefully this will catch on. In the big cities it is impossible to do this and more and more children are be born with problems stemming from the exposure to all these foods containing unsafe chemicals. Thank you for caring.
