I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for GMO Labeling Laws!
Dear Organic Consumer,
Last week, the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA), who along with Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) is suing the state of Vermont to overturn its GMO labeling law, served up ice cream and root beer floats to members of Congress.
It was all part of the IDFA’s 32nd annual Capitol Hill Ice Cream Party, carried out with help from IDFA and GMA members like Dean Foods, Nestle USA, Unilever, J.M. Smucker Co. and more.
But what it was really about, of course, was sweetening the backroom deals the Gene Giants, Big Food and Big Dairy are plotting with politicians. So they can overturn Vermont’s law and pass a sweeping federal law to preempt state GMO labeling laws.
We aren’t going to stoop to setting up an ice cream stand on Capitol Hill. But we do need your help to raise enough money to defend Vermont and pass a strong GMO labeling initiative in Oregon.
We’re still about $11,000 short of our summer fundraising goal. Can you help us reach the finish line by midnight June 30? Click here for details on how to donate online, by mail or by phone.
The IDFA’s Ice Cream Propaganda Party represents everything that’s wrong with politics today.
But the GMO labeling movement has come too far to let a little Rocky Road or Chunky Monkey stop us.
With your help, we’re going to do everything in our power to defend Vermont’s law, pass an equally strong labeling law in Oregon in November, and raise holy hell if Congress even thinks about passing the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) ACT.
Please help us fight back. Against the GMA, the IDFA and Big Food. Click here for details on how to donate online, by mail or by phone.
