#NoDARKAct

By mike flugennockThursday - July 7th, 2016Categories: environment

The so-called “DARK Act”, working its way through the US Senate, is a pro-corporate bill full of loopholes disguised as a GMO labeling bill which, in fact, hides GMO information behind QR codes and toll-free telephone numbers.

Prior to the Senate vote yesterday, my long-time comrade Adam Eidinger and his pals from the Organic Consumers Association protested the influence of Monsanto in the Senate by flinging money — yep, that’s right, $2000 in real cash money — onto the floor of the Senate.

So, folks… are you hungry for a little “food democracy”?

Alright, gang, time for a double-header! Occupy Monsanto yesterday visited the national headquarters of the GOP and the Democrats on Capitol Hill with a little classic biohazard street theater. Visitors called on GOP nominee Barack Romney to deal with the issue of the revolving door between Monsanto and the government, and called on Democratic incumbent Mitt Obama to keep his ‘08 campaign promises on GMO food labeling.

5 minutes, 40 seconds.
