"Monsanto protection act" slips silently through congress

category international | consumer issues | other press author Tuesday March 26, 2013 18:52author by fred Report this post to the editors

The US House of Representatives quietly passed a last-minute addition to the Agricultural Appropriations Bill for 2013 last week - including a provision protecting genetically modified seeds from litigation in the face of health risks.

RT is running a piece about how this biotech corporation protection clause was slipped in anonymously on the back of vital short term funding legislation as a "rider" on it's path through the Senate.

".. the provisionís success is viewed by many as a victory by companies like Syngenta Corp, Cargill, Monsanto and affiliated PACs that have donated $7.5 million to members of Congress since 2009, and $372,000 to members of the Senate Appropriations Committee."

In light of the new alfalfa GMO, this is a worrying development for opponents of GMO's and the biotech companies pushing them.

watch out for similar developments this side of the pond.

Many more details on the Euro GMO situation in attached PDF (things are worse than you think!)

The following gives you some idea of what these Corporations are up to:

http://www.aphis.usda.gov/biotechnology/petitions_table...shtml

The following gives you some idea how these GMO's are seeping into the processed food industry in the states.

You'll recognise quite a few of the products. It's only a matter of time before our European labelling laws are weakened / eviscerated by lobbying from biotech corporate vested interests, as was the case in the US.
