Help Defeat Monsanto

Monsanto has been threatening every state that even considers passing a GMO labeling law with a lawsuit. This seems to be working for them as most of our representatives and Governors are backing down when threatened. Thankfully some states have a voter initiative process that allows them to vote on laws by getting enough signatures to add the bill to the ballot for public approval. California has produced the required signatures and a GMO labeling bill will be on the ballot for the public to vote on. However, Monsanto is going to try to defeat it by massive negative advertising campaign to attempt to scare the public. We have to be able to fight back and that takes people and  money.
Many groups. Reaching out to millions of people. To raise millions of dollars. To take back our food supply.
This battle in California - initiated and powered by the 99% - will largely determine the future of what we eat and what we grow. Once we force GMO labeling in California - the eighth largest economy in the world - consumers will stop buying foods containing GMOs. Food manufacturers will be forced to stop contaminating our food with GMOs.

It happened in Europe. It can happen here.
Mercola.com, the largest alternative health website in the world, along with a group of leading organic companies including Nature's Path, Lundberg Family Farms, and Eden Foods,    pledged another one million dollars to the campaign - but only if the campaign reaches the goal of $1 million by May 26.

Please help them raise $1 million by May 26 for the California Right to Know GMO Labeling Campaign so they don't miss out on this $1 million matching gift! You can donate online, by phone, or by mail.
Please donate today - online, by phone, or drop a check in the mail. Every dollar you contribute will go directly into the California Right to Know ballot initiative and other state GMO labeling campaigns, including a legal defense fund to defend states that pass GMO labeling laws from Monsanto lawsuits.
