In spite of 20,00 e-mails from organic consumers and, in apparent contradiction to his announcement that he wants an organic garden at the White House, Obama has chosen Tom Vilsack, a strong bio-tech proponent supporting genetically engineered crops, cloned animals, etc., to run the Department of Agriculture.
As you will see below, Vilsack is truly Monsanto‘s boy. He pre-empted the local votes of towns and counties who had voted to disallow GE seeds!
It’s still possible to block Vilsack’s confirmation with a massive support of the petition drafted by the Organic Consumer Association. It’s easy to sign on at this link:
or from the Organic Consumer Association website http://www.organicconsumers.org/
Your email will be sent to your Senators and the President-Elect‘s office.
