The graphic pretty much says it all, but if you’d like to read up on this abomination of a law, try these few articles.

The good news is that this is only a temporary law. It is set to expire in 6 months. The bad news is that unless we make an un-ignorable stink, it’s likely to become permanent. Here are a few places you can go to sign petitions, learn more about various action plans, and make your voice heard.
Food Democracy Now!
Organic Consumers Association
Center For Food Safety

It may take an epic battle, but together, we can defeat Monsanto.

In the meantime, avoiding processed foods and growing your own when you can seems like the best defense. Here are a couple of places where you can find heirloom and non-genetically modified seeds:
Botanical Interests
Seeds Now
The Ark

    I remember many years ago when Monsanto first came to India with their cotton seeds there were so many cases of farmers’ committing suicides. Why? Because every time the crop would fail due to bad weather the farmers went bankrupt having used up their meager earnings and taken huge loans to buy seeds that they could not propagate themselves. If Monsanto can twist the arm of the American government, imagine what they must be doing in other poorer nations. I don’t think Monsanto’s argument that its work is vital to feed the burgeoning global population is valid. Every year in countries like India mountains of grains rot because they can’t deliver, due to various inefficiencies, in timely fashion to the poor. And this has been before Monsanto’s arrival.
