THIS IS REAL
To begin reversing GM contamination will require ending the power biotech companies such as Monsanto exert over our government and through that, over our food.
HR 875, was introduced by Rosa DeLauro whose husband Stanley Greenburg works for Monsanto.
The bill is monstrous on level after level – the power it would give to Monsanto, the criminalization of seed banking, the prison terms and confiscatory fines for farmers, the 24 hours GPS tracking of their animals, the easements on their property to allow for warrantless government entry, the stripping away of their property rights, the imposition by the filthy, greedy industrial side of anti-farming international “industrial” standards to independent farms – the only part of our food system that still works, the planned elimination of farmers through all these means.
The corporations want the land, they want more intensive industrialization, they want the end of normal animals so they can substitute patented genetically engineered ones they own, they want the end of normal seeds and thus of seed banking by farmers or individuals. They want control over all seeds, animals, water, and land.

This is REAL folks. This bill has 39 sponsors, (all democrats for the few people out there that think democrats are going to save us all) so it should move fast. 2 of the bills sponsors are from AZ – Gabrielle Giffords (CD-8) and Raul Grijalva (CD-7). If you live in these districts, it’s time to get active, get these representatives to realize what they are doing, and get them to rescind support.
All of this permaculture will be for naught if the federal gestapo comes and hauls you off to jail so you can eat prison food.
