Repealing the "Monsanto Protection Act"

United States Senator Jeff Merkley

In March, a secret rider, notoriously known as the "Monsanto Protection Act," was quietly and anonymously dropped into a must-pass spending bill to override court decisions requiring more thorough health and safety reviews for some genetically modified seeds. The federal courts have an important role in protecting farmers and consumers from potentially unsafe genetically modified products. This secret rider subverted this important process.

Shortly after this secret rider was signed into law, Jeff held a series of town halls, where he heard from Oregonians of all stripes about their concerns about this provision. He decided to take action. This week, Jeff filed an amendment to the farm bill that would strip this provision from law, restoring the legal process for review of genetically-engineered seeds.

 

 This is one of the most important issues of our Times.

There is a $5.00 download cost via this link.  This film is free on Netflix. 

THE FUTURE OF FOOD offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind the unlabeled, patented, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade. From the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada to the fields of Oaxaca, Mexico, this film gives a voice to farmers whose lives and livelihoods have been negatively impacted by this new technology. The health implications, government policies and push towards globalization are all part of the reason why many people are alarmed by the introduction of genetically altered crops into our food supply. Shot on location in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, THE FUTURE OF FOOD examines the complex web of market and political forces that are changing what we eat as huge multinational corporations seek to control the world's food system. The film also explores alternatives to large-scale industrial agriculture, placing organic and sustainable agriculture as real solutions to the farm crisis today.
