Campaigns for GMO-Free regions are going on around the world, and in the U.S. the GMO Free Oregon fight just had a win with the defeat of the Senate Bill 633 – which is being called Oregon's Monsanto Protection Act.
Many counties across the state are now focusing on local GMO ban initiatives… keep up the good work!
CONGRATULATIONS! SB633 IS DEAD!!!
All your calls, sharing and signing of the petitions, to let Oregon politicians know that we will not allow pro-GMO, top-down laws that force the will of corporations upon our people and force our farmers into structures of servitude!
Oregonians for Food and Shelter and the Oregon Farm Bureau are very powerful lobbies. Therefore, to see their bad-for-the-state-GMO ban preemption law go down in flames is an awesome testament to the POWER OF THE PEOPLE in supporting that fight.
We got confirmation that the push back on SB633 from you and others was exponentially the single loudest message received this session – bar none. A big round of applause and shout out to all who helped.
With the defeat of SB633, citizens of Jackson County Oregon can now vote for their local GMO crop ban in the May 2014 election. Other counties across the state now have GMO ban initiatives in the works too, and now they can vote if they get on their local ballots.
Help us keep the momentum by supporting us at:
