Sign On to Stop the Monsanto Riders!

A petition has been circulating to stop riders that slipped into the 2013 House Agriculture Appropriations bill. Dubbed the Monsanto riders, they “would require – not just allow, but require – the Secretary of Agriculture to grant a temporary permit for the planting or cultivation of a genetically engineered crop, even if a federal court has ordered the planting be halted until an Environmental Impact Statement is completed. All the farmer or the biotech producer has to do is ask.” Click here to sign this petition, they are close to their goal and you can help them reach it!
