From Food Democracy Now!
This is our last chance to stop Fast Track, take action today to make sure your Senators vote NO to Monsanto’s Secret Trade Deal. Last week, in a surprise vote, the House narrowly passed the Fast Track and now it must be approved by the U.S. Senate before it heads to the President’s desk to be signed into law. The Senate will hold a vote on Fast Track approval THIS morning (Tues., June 23rd) and we need your help to stop it!
While no version of the Fast Track of the trade agreement has been released to the public, language in the recently passed Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015, which authorizes the Fast Track declares that GMO labeling is an “unjustified trade restriction”. This is an outrage!
Even worse, corporate lobbyists that used to work for Monsanto, DuPont and Big Tobacco are currently writing the language for the secret trade deal on behalf of the Obama administration!
Demand an end to secret trade deals! Stop the fast track of the TPP. Stand with Food Democracy Now! – stop Monsanto’s secret trade deal before it’s too late!
Your Senators need to hear from you in the next 24 hours. Once you sign the letter, please call the Congressional switchboard to leave a message for your Senators: (202) 224-3121. http://bit.ly/1IaOPvI
