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.
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.Here is a link to join the 1,100 private citizens who have already donated to the Right to Know Campaign.
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.
