Urgent Action ALERT: Repeal Monsanto Protection Act (MPA)

What’s the Monsanto Protection Act?
The Monsanto Protection Act prevents federal courts from stopping the sale or planting of controversial GMO seeds, even if they were illegally approved and could threaten human health or the environment.

When and how did this get passed?
It was passed without debate or a vote this past March.  It was passed without debate or vote because it was cleverly attached as an amendment to the Continuing Resolution that was being pushed through as an emergency because it detemines funding for the US Government through September 30, 2013.  The Continuing Resolution and its amendment, The Monsanto Protection Act, was signed into law in this past March.

As long as The Monsanto Protection Act remains in force, even the federal courts can’t stop Monsanto from planting new genetically modified crops!

What can we do?
We must act swiftly because we have a chance to repeal The Monsanto Protection Act!  Senator Jeff Merkley will offer an amendment to the Senate version of the 2013 Farm Bill to repeal the infamous Monsanto Protection Act, which gives Monsanto immunity from federal law.

This is TIME SENSITIVE, so please take action TODAY… contact your senator and sign the petition to repeal the Monsanto Protection Act!
