Attention Dear Readers,
ACTION ALERT! TODAY the vote on this is taking place!!
Please join me in signing this important petition opposing Oregon State Senate Bill 633, that will protect large biotech corporate interests at the expense of the public interest.
Oregon ranks 5th in the U.S. for its number of organic farms, making the stakes very high– this bill currently in the Oregon State Legislature, would allow genetically engineered (GE) seeds, crops, and pollen are allowed to run rampant and contaminate Oregon’s organic farmland and crops.
It would reduce a scientifically invalid 4 mile isolation for GE crops to an indefensible, arbitrary and grossly inadequate quarter mile. Compare this to the fact that GE corn has been found elsewhere about 1000 miles away from any legal GE corn field.
Please take a look at this, and SIGN and SHARE. The farmer’s statement that the petition supports is long, but very informative.
