$4,800,000. That’s how much biotech giant Monsanto has spent so far fighting a GMO labeling initiative in Washington State. With such deep pockets likely to turn their attention to fighting Vermont’s labeling bill, and we want you to join us for the October 12th March against Monsanto.
With the legislative session right around the corner, we will soon be fighting to make sure the Senate passes a strong GMO labeling bill. Last year, Vermont became the first state to pass a GMO labeling bill through any legislative chamber, and now we are set to get it to the Governor’s desk in 2014. To make this happen we need to show our legislators that Vermonters demand a strong GMO labeling bill.
Representatives from the VT Right to Know GMOs coalition will be on hand to discuss this year’s campaign, and how the people of Vermont can win in the fight to know what’s in our food. Join us in Montpelier October 12th at 10 a.m. on the State House lawn and take part in the global March Against Monsanto.
October 12th is World Food Day so organizers are asking everyone to bring non-perishable, non-GMO foods to benefit our low-income Vermont neighbors. Bring your canned goods and we will see you there.
