GMO Inside - If corporations won't label GMOs, then we the people will.
Dear Green American ,

Thank you for calling your legislators last week about the sneaky biotech rider.  Looks like we are not in the clear yet.  The Senate is voting today so please call again now!

Please call your senator NOW and stop the biotech rider!

Sample text: “I am a constituent and asking Senator _____ to oppose the biotech rider, section 735, in the Senate Continuing Resolution of H.R. 933.”


The Senate is voting today on legislation in which biotech companies (think Monsanto) have snuck in a provision that ends judicial oversight of plants, including the regulation of genetically engineered (GE) crops.

Called the “Farmer Assurance Provision” as though it will help farmers and those growing our food, this provision strips the rights of federal courts to halt the sale and planting of genetically engineered crops during the legal appeals process.  Once again, Monsanto and the biotech industry are working behind closed doors to undermine our rights and our judicial system. This time they’ve gone too far!

The rider states the “Secretary of Agriculture shall immediately grant temporary permit(s) or temporary deregulation … shall authorize the movement, introduction, continued cultivation, commercialization and other specifically enumerated activities…” of plants, even while under judicial review.

The Senate is voting today so please call your senators now and ask them to oppose this provision!

Please call your senator NOW and stop the biotech rider!

Sample text: “I am a constituent and asking Senator _____ to oppose the biotech rider, section 735, in the Senate Continuing Resolution of H.R. 933.”
