US House and Senate are about (in a week and a half) to vote on bill
that will OUTLAW ORGANIC FARMING (bill HR 875). There is an enormous
rush to get this into law within the next 2 weeks before people
realize what is happening.
Main backer and lobbyist is (guess who) Monsanto (aspartame maker) -
chemical and genetic engineering giant corporation. This bill will
require organic farms to use specific fertilizers and poisonous insect
sprays dictated by the newly formed agency to "make sure there is no
danger to the public food supply". This will include backyard gardens
that grow food only for a family and not for sales.
If this passes then NO more heirloom clean seeds but only Monsanto
genetically altered seeds that are now showing up with unexpected
diseases in humans.
There is a video on the subject.
And another one here.
The name on this outrageous food plan is Food Safety Modernization Act
of 2009 (bill HR 875).

answer the phone, just tell them (politely) that you are calling to express
your views on HR 875. Tell them your views, they'll take your name and address
and pass your comments along to the congressperson. The following link
is a list of the U.S. senators and their contact info.
