> This is SO important I ask PLEASE READ IT NOW, thank you!
> Please forward to everyone you know…..now…..
> US House and Senate are about (in a week and a half) to vote on a bill that
> will OUTLAW ORGANIC FARMING (bill HR 875). There is an enormous rush to get
> this into law within the next 2 weeks before people realize what is
> Main backer and lobbyist is Monsanto – chemical and genetic engineering
> giant corporation (and Cargill, ADM, and about 35 other related
> agri-giants). This bill will require organic farms to use specific
> fertilizers and poisonous insect sprays dictated by the newly formed agency
> to “make sure there is no danger to the public food supply”. This will
> include backyard gardens that grow food only for a family and not for sales!
> Scroll down for more details on the bill.
> Scroll down for WHAT YOU CAN DO.
> If this passes then NO more heirloom clean seeds but only Monsanto
> genetically altered seeds that are now showing up with unexpected diseases
> in humans.
The name on this outrageous food plan is:
> Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009 (bill HR 875).
> THIS IS REAL, FOLKS!
> ** PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL CONCERNED ON YOUR
> MAILING LISTS &
> ** CALL YOUR SENATE REPRESENTATIVES TODAY!
> Get on that phone and burn up the wires. Get anyone else you can to do the
> same thing.
> The House and Senate WILL pass this if they are not massively threatened
> with loss of their position…. They only fear your voice and your vote.
> ** BEST THING TO DO is go to www.house.gov/writerep all you have to do is
> put in your zip and it will give you your congressperson and how to get in
> touch with them. When you call their office someone will answer the phone,
> just tell them (politely) that you are calling to express your views on HR
> Tell them your views, they’ll take your name and address and pass your
> comments along to the congressperson.
> The following link is a list of the U.S. senators and their contact info:
> Thank you for your time
> peace, love and participation for change! 🙂

> HR 875 The food police, criminalizing organic farming and the backyard
> gardener, and violation of the 10th amendment
> HR 875 is being steamrolled thru the House and we have to pick up the pace!
> HR 875
> This bill is sitting in committee and I am not sure when it is going to hit
> the floor. One thing I do know is that very few of the Representatives have
> read it. As usual they will vote on this based on what someone else is
> saying. Urge your members to read the legislation and ask for opposition to
> this devastating legislation. Devastating for everyday folks but great for
> factory farming ops like Monsanto, ADM, Sodexo and Tyson to name a few.
> I have no doubt that this legislation was heavily influenced by lobbyists
> from huge food producers. This legislation is so broad based that
> technically someone with a little backyard garden could get fined and have
> their property siezed. It will effect anyone who produces food even if they
> do not sell but only consume it. It will literally put all independent
> farmers and food producers out of business due to the huge amounts of money
> it will take to conform to factory farming methods. If people choose to farm
> without industry standards such as chemical pesticides and fertilizers they
> will be subject to a vareity of harassment from this completely new agency
> that has never before existed. That’s right, a whole new government agency
> is being created just to police food, for our own protection of course.
> DO NOT TAKE MY WORD FOR IT, READ THIS LEGISLATION FOR YOURSELF. The more
> people who read this legislation the more insight we are going to get and be
> able to share. Post your observations and insights below. Urge your members
> to read this legislation and to oppose the passage of this legislation.
> Pay special attention to
> * Section 3 which is the definitions portion of the bill-read in it’s
> * section 103, 206 and 207- read in it’s entirety.
> Red flags I found and I am sure there are more………..
> * Legally binds state agriculture depts to enforcing federal guidelines
> effectively taking away the states power to do anything other than being
> food police for the federal dept.
> * Effectively criminalizes organic farming but doesn’t actually use the word
> * Effects anyone growing food even if they are not selling it but consuming
> * Effects anyone producing meat of any kind including wild game.
> * Legislation is so broad based that every aspect of growing or producing
> food can be made illegal. There are no specifics which is bizarre
> considering how long the legislation is.
> * Section 103 is almost entirely about the administrative aspect of the
> legislation. It will allow the appointing of officials from the factory
> farming corporations and lobbyists and classify them as experts and allow
> them to determine and interpret the legislation. Who do you think they are
> going to side with?
> * Section 206 defines what will be considered a food production facility and
> what will be enforced up all food production facilities. The wording is so
> broad based that a backyard gardener could be fined and more.
> * Section 207 requires that the state’s agriculture dept act as the food
> police and enforce the federal requirements. This takes away the states
> power and is in violation of the 10th amendment.
> * There are many more but by the time I got this far in the legislation I
> was so alarmed that I wanted to bring someone’s attention to it.
