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.
