The Oregon Right to Know campaign is preparing for the huge onslaught of out-of-state money from giant Biotech corporations in opposition to GMO labeling Ballot Measure 92. As a grassroots organization, the campaign is counting heavily on Oregonian-to-Oregonian interactions to dispel well-financed misinformation. To that end, they are seeking citizen and business endorsements.

If you are an Oregonian and support Ballot Measure 92, please sign to stand with your neighbors.

Petition: We Have a Right to Know What’s In Our Food

Genetically engineered foods are everywhere in grocery stores, but you'd never know it. That's because in the United States, the big chemical companies that manufacture genetically engineered ingredients aren't required to label the foods that contain them. That puts us at odds with 64 countries that do require labeling; countries including Japan, Australia and the European Union.

Now, Oregon is on the verge of becoming the first state to pass an initiative requiring transparency in genetically engineered food labeling. But big chemical companies like Monsanto are spending whatever it takes to deceive the public, just as they did when they told us Agent Orange and DDT were safe.

Add your name if you agree that we have a right to know what's in the food we eat and feed our families.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
