Mothers Want To Know What They Feed Their Children!
Historic Showdown on Food Safety versus multi national corporate interests
THIS THURSDAY October 8, 2015 in New York!
"When the people of Vermont voted to label food with GMOs
So that they could find out what was in what the farmer grows,
Monsanto and Starbucks, through the Grocery Manufacturer's Alliance,
Sued the State of Vermont to overturn the People's will.
Monsanto and Starbucks,
MOTHERS WANT TO KNOW WHAT THEY FEED THEIR CHILDREN!"
- A Rockstar Bucks a Coffee Shop, Neil Young
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit set the argument date for the appeal in Grocery Manufacturers Association vs. Sorrell, the Vermont GE Food Labeling law case, for October 8, in New York.
This is the case that will set precedents and determine whether GE foods are able to be labeled in the U.S. In accordance with the will of the public as they are in 64 other countries. This Case has 1st Amendment/consumer transparency ramifications beyond GE foods as well.
Eight states, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Washington all filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circut in NYC in support of Vermonts GMO Labeling Law.
PLEASE Go to New York City if you are able to let your voice be heard.
I am playing in the beautiful state of Oregon on that day and would be there in NYC if I could but #IStandWithVermont as so many do!
Stand Up and Save the Earth.
Let your voice be heard!
