Let’s hold him to his 2007 campaign promise to label GMOs.

The “DARK Act” would not fulfill this promise and instead President Obama would be remembered as the president who sold the American people out to industry. Don’t give up. Use your voice and be sure the President hears from you.

Hello Friends,

As you probably know, the Stabenow-Roberts GMO-Labeling “Compromise” bill easily passed through the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, and it is now sitting on President Obama’s desk awaiting his signature.

If you’d like to sign the official We the People petition to the White House urging him to veto this bill, below is the link.

Dr. Mercola explains it all

Voluntary ‘Smart Label’ Preempts State and Consumer Rights” 

Yet in just three years, from 2013 through 2015, the food industry spent nearly $200 million on anti-labeling campaigns. If you bought any processed food at all in the last few years, you have undoubtedly supported their efforts to pull the wool over your eyes because the list of traitor companies is long indeed, and contains many of the most widely bought brands in the U.S. Isn’t it time to stop paying these companies to lie to you and deceive you?

We will keep you posted on the latest updates.

Thank you for all you do!
