The Fascist Regime USA! What Do You Say?

American Fascism . . .More Protest Required?

Genetic Engineering Bullies Slice Up Democracy for Profit

On June 21, the US farm bill (S. 3240) passed the Senate and moved to the House. Unfortunately, the Sanders amendment (2310), which would secure individual states’ right to label genetically engineered foods was defeated 73-26, clearly illustrating the power and leverage of the GE lobby.  The amendment would have put an end to the kind of bullying Monsanto has engaged in for many years, such as threatening to sue states that want to enact their own GE labeling laws.

This legislative boon is exactly what you’d expect from a politician bought and paid for by the industry. The provision, dubbed “The Monsanto Protection Act” by Food Democracy Now, effectively strips judges of their constitutional mandate to protect consumer rights and the environment. It’s a perfect example of how insidious the collusion between the biotech industry and Washington really is, and how easily and nonchalantly they undermine our most basic rights.

please take a moment to sign your name to a letter created by Food Democracy NOW asking your Representative to support DeFazio’s amendment to strike Kingston’s biotech-friendly “farmer assurance provision.” The campaign letter can be found here

Recently watched the documentary Food inc. Living in Indiana, surrounded by farmland, it really makes you look different at the crops growing all around you.

John, thanks for your comment. And it may sound extreme to call the USA a Fascist country. Fascism simply means (according to the best definition) – the merger of corporate and state power. So perhaps this label when applied to the USA will have sufficient impact to encourage, assist and even inspire people to challenge American Fascism with Love. The defeat of the Sanders amendment along with a long list of corporate crimes against humanity (for this is exactly what they are) and not exclusively by Monsanto by any means . . .must be a call to action that freedom and democracy now need defending
