Last month, we launched a petition
calling out Hillary Clinton on her support for GMOs. So far, nearly 95,000 people have signed the petition.
We’d like to make that number a lot bigger.
Why? Why bother to try to change the mind of someone who has such a long history of financial ties to the biotech industry? Someone who isn’t even an elected official or a candidate?
Because when Hillary talks, the media listens. And right now, they’re hanging on her every word, as they wait for her to announce that she’ll run for president in 2016.
All signs point to a run, including the fact that Hillary is headed to Iowa.
If (or when?) Hillary runs for president, we need to make GMO labeling laws a big campaign issue. And to do that, we need big numbers.
We already know from her speech to the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) convention in San Diego in June that Hillary supports genetic engineering. But she’s so far managed to dodge the question of whether or not she supports state GMO labeling laws’or the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act, introduced in Congress, that would preempt state GMO labeling laws.
If you haven’t signed the petition, please sign today. If you’ve already signed, please ask five of your friends to sign, too.
