I read an article today that got me so excited.
Groups, "Organic Consumers Association, Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap, Center for Food Safety, Mercola.com, Nature's Path, Natural News.com, LabelGMOs.org, Food Democracy Now, and the Institute for Responsible Technology, filed papers with the California Attorney General's office to place a Citizens Initiative on the Ballot in November, 2012 that would require mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods and food ingredients."
In Europe, it is law that foods must be labeled if they are genetically engineered, but in America no such law exists and therefore all sorts of food stuff and ingredients can be sold to the American consumer w/o their knowledge. Monsanto, the "biotech bully" are really heading the GMO production, and it's fantastic that people are gathering together to end their tyranny!
This is what we need!! Strength, courage, prayer, and action! Consumer power can really shift the tide to our benefit. And why not?? If we are going to pay money to buy food, it better be the real deal and not some rip-off!
Right now, the Citizens' Initiative is in need of volunteers, donations, and signatures to help forward the cause.
