“Today is Independence Day for America. Monsanto’s threats and abuse of family farmers stops here.  Monsanto’s genetic contamination of organic seed and organic crops ends now.” Declared Jim Gerritsen, a Maine family farmer, who is President of the lead plaintiff Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association. “Americans have the right to choice in the marketplace — to decide what kind of food they will feed their families — and we are taking this action on their behalf to protect that right to choose.”

Our second action this week is curbing the nuclear threat here in the U.S. There are two featured actions. First, tell President Obama not to use taxpayer dollars to fund nuclear power. Second, let’s close down all GE Mark nuclear reactors here in the U.S. Third, while we’re at it, let’s ask GE to pay their taxes. That’s right, they’re not paying any. Hey, how could that be? I thought corporations are people?
