Speak up for farmers, not agribusiness.
As we alerted you yesterday, Monsanto and Agribusiness companies have managed to insert two dangerous provisions into the Continuing Resolution (“CR”) that is about to be voted on by the U.S. Senate.
The first provision is the “Monsanto rider” that destroys the few protections that currently exist against the planting of new genetically engineered crops.
The second provision will allow giant Agribusiness companies to continue abusive and deceptive practices that hurt livestock and poultry farmers.
The good news is that Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) is introducing amendments to strike both of these riders!
