Obama promotes Monsanto over organic farmers

On Tuesday, January 31st, in Foley Square, NYC at 9:00 am, there is a rally to support.family farmers who will enter a courtroom in Manhattan in the first phase of their landmark court case challenging Monsanto’s abusive patent infringement lawsuits against America’s family farmers. They seek to protect themselves from Monsanto’s unwanted genetic trespass of their crops, which exposes organic and non-GMO farmers to needless patent liability and frivolous lawsuits.

Recently, President Obama named past Monsanto Vice President Michael Taylor as Senior Advisor to the Commissioner at the FDA. Taylor is the same person who was Food Safety Czar at the FDA when Genetically Modified Organisms were allowed into the US food supply without undergoing a single test to determine their safety or risks. (Subsequent tests strongly question their safety)

I don’t know what to make of our President. It is two steps back for every one forward.

One Response to Obama promotes Monsanto over organic farmers

  1. There was an anonymous comment left here that did not dispute the facts, just had a different perspective of time. For the record, Michael Taylor was first appointed to an FDA position in 2009, and again in 2010. The report I read was dated Jan 11, 2012, but it may have been a re-post of an earlier article. Anonymous offered this link, which has good background (Thanks anonymous!)
