Food Freedom Betrayal!

Organic Consumers Association Funded by Big Pharma!

By Barbara H. Peterson

Farm Wars

Our food supply is in jeopardy. Not only from outside forces such as poisons from China, but from within. The very people that we look to for guidance seem to be working together to lead us straight into global food governance in the form of Codex Alimentarius. This is especially alarming when you consider that the very organizations such as the USDA and FDA, that are charged with the safeguarding and regulation of our food supply are at the forefront of the battle, leading us straight into worldwide genocide using food as a weapon.

But the USDA and FDA do not stand alone. There are others who consider food to be “fair game” in this war against the people, and they just happen to control some very large purse strings. So, who holds the purse strings behind the push to obliterate any food safeguards we may have? Let’s just pick two – Rockefeller and Merck, then take a closer look at a few of the “trusted” organizations that they fund.  More

Organic Consumers Association: What a difference a day makes

12 Comments

Imagine my surprise, after promoting this organization on my site, recommending it to so many others and believing this group would be instrumental in the fight against oppressive government regulations and unnecessary legislation that will cause undue hardship on organic farmers, ranchers and anyone devoted to natural food and traditional farming and ranching…..I find this alert from OCA calling the efforts to stop these egregious bills from being passed “internet myths”.  (See Alert below)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

It is apparent NO ONE at OCA has actually read the bills or realizes that the “food Safety” bills are nothing less than pieces of an overall plan. 

This capitulation on the part of OCA occurred less than 24 hours after the Ag committee hearings that occurred yesterday regarding the intents of these bills. 

What a difference a day makes!

OCA also seems to be totally oblivious to the connections between Monsanto and current AG committee members, and individuals who cruise between government appointments and Monsanto on a regular basis along with individuals from other corporations which are just as malignant in their intent.

OCA might be interested in reading this list of who is who in the world of corporate pandering before calling any thing a “myth”. 

Its obvious the only myth any of us fighting this assault on agriculture and the right to farm and ranch without government intrusion is Organic Consumers Association, itself…….which has shown itself more than willing to support the marginalization and diminishment of grass roots efforts to fight back.   

Although OCA certainly has its shortcomings, we can’t count on them to support all the efforts by those of us dedicated to pushing back against government regulations and unnecessary legislation that would adversely affect all of us.

In actuality, OCA knows that HR 875 would cause great hardship to farmers and ranchers and should never support USDA’s new police state regulations and enforcement capabilities which would be granted if these horrible bills pass.

OCA also knows that HR 875 does not address global imports or contamination on any level and is targeted to US producers only.  OCA knows that HR 875 is far from limited in its vision of implementing a total capture of domestic food production and is not intended to make safe, or to protect the supply on any level.  It is simply a system designed to seize control of domestic production of any kind.

Its mythical to think OCA supports you!

As a result of the alert I received this morning, OCA will no longer be advertised or promoted on my site.  We will not recommend any article or information from them.

This alert from OCA makes clear their support is not with us or for us.

From OCA Alerts:

Internet Myth of the Week:

Congress To Pass Bill That Will Outlaw Organic Farming?

This week, we received numerous calls and emails from OCA supporters who came across alarming YouTube videos and emails circulating on the internet that claimed a new food safety bill (HR 875) introduced in Congress would make “organic farming illegal.” Although the Bill certainly has its shortcomings, it is an exaggeration to say that is a secret plot by Monsanto and the USDA to destroy the nation’s alternative food and farming system. In actuality, HR 875, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009, is a limited-vision attempt by moderate Democrats and Republicans to craft food safety legislation to address the out-of-control filth and contamination that are inherent in our industrialized, now globalized, “profit-at-any-cost” food system.

The idea that OCA would send out such an alert when so much is at stake is unforgivable. 

More on this later.

Sign the Millions Against Monsanto Petition

Sign the Millions Against Monsanto Petition

This is a copy of the petition letter:  To sign for yourself, use the link provided. 

This letter is provided only as a sample. 

Hugh Grant
Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer
Monsanto Company
800 North Lindbergh Boulevard
St. Louis, MO-63167
(314) 694-1000

Dear Mr. Grant:

We, the undersigned, are deeply concerned about the direction Monsanto Company has taken in the past decade with respect to sustainable agriculture and farmers’ rights. Right now we are at a critical crossroads in history, and I fear that Monsanto Company is not contributing to the nation’s welfare with a “profits over people” attitude.

Monsanto Company has embarked on a vicious campaign against family farmers in the North American heartland, as well as across the world. These hardworking farmers are the backbone of our nation’s food supply and national security. The current climate of insecurity has been exacerbated by your company’s policies of intimidation, lawsuits and defamation.

Monsanto’s legal actions against Percy Schmeiser, the Rodney Nelson family, and the Oakhurst Dairy for example, are deplorable attacks, and do not reflect your “Stake in the Ground” pledge to honesty and decency.

The North American farm sector is becoming a veritable wasteland. Monsanto’s Genetically Engineered crops have increased pesticide use, destroyed key export markets and threaten global food safety. Over 90% of American consumers want genetically engineered foods labeled, while 60% or more want GE-Free food for themselves and for their families.

Family farmers have the right to produce the safe, sustainable food without fear of intimidation and litigation. Consumers have the right to choose food that guarantees their families’ health and safety. I demand that Monsanto change course by adopting the following practices:

1. Stop intimidating small family farmers
2. Stop force-feeding untested and unlabeled genetically engineered foods on consumers
3. Stop using billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money to subsidize genetically engineered crops- cotton, soybeans, corn, and canola.
Sincerely,

http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/642/petition.jsp?petition_KEY=1265  to sign the petition provided by Organic Consumers Association
