Robert F. Kennedy Jr., one of my activist heroes, has written a powerful Foreword to my new book, co-authored with Dr. Mercola, titled The Truth About COVID-19, which will be released on April 26. You can pre-order the book here.
Reinforcing what OCA and our allies have been writing for the past year, RFK Jr. warns that “Government technocrats, billionaire oligarchs, Big Pharma, Big Data, Big Media, the high-finance robber barons and the military industrial intelligence apparatus” are utilizing the COVID-19 crisis as “shock therapy” to force the US and global body politic to surrender to a new fear-based regime that can only be described as biofascism.
As RFK Jr. writes:
“Dick Cheney used the 911 attack to launch his ‘long war’ against amorphous terrorism and the Patriot Act abridgments that laid the groundwork for the modern surveillance state.
Now the medical cartel and its billionaire Big Tech accomplices have invoked the most potent, frightening and enduring enemy of all — the microbe.
And who can blame them? Increasing the wealth and power of the oligarchy is seldom a potent vessel for populism. Citizens accustomed to voting for their governments are unlikely to support policies that make the rich richer, increase political and social control by corporations, diminish democracy and reduce their civil rights.
So demagogues must weaponize fear to justify their demands for blind obedience and to win public acquiescence for the demolition of civil and economic rights.
Of course, the first casualty must always be freedom of speech. After stoking sufficient panic against the hobgoblin du jour, robber barons need to silence protest against their wealth and power-grabs.”

OCA’s ongoing campaign to stop Big Meat and factory farm corporations from fraudulently advertising their products and practices as “natural”, “all-natural”, “sustainable”, or “humane” continues to move forward.
On April 1, The District of Columbia Superior Court rejected the motion to dismiss a lawsuit brought by Organic Consumers Association (OCA) and Food & Water Watch against Tyson Foods alleging the company makes deceptive sustainability and animal welfare marketing claims about Tyson chicken products. The court also rejected Tyson's claim that the lawsuit violates the company's First Amendment rights.

The largest factory farm-based U.S. meat and dairy companies, along with livestock and agricultural lobbying groups, have spent millions campaigning against climate action and sowing doubt about the links between industrialized, chemical and energy-intensive factory farms and climate change, according to new research from New York University. Over 90% of the meat and animal products that American consumers eat come from intensive confinement factory farms, euphemistically called Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs).
The study, published this week in the journal Climatic Change, also points out the world’s biggest meat and dairy companies aren’t doing enough to curb their greenhouse gas emissions, with only a handful making pledges to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.

As we’ve pointed out in recent issues, Facebook and the Silicon Valley promoters of Big Pharma products have threatened to “deplatform” OCA and our allies (and in some cases already have) for raising questions about the “official story” on COVID-19.
Being deplatformed would cut us off from communicating with our 1.2 million Facebook followers about the origins, nature, virulence, prevention, and treatment of COVID-19. To set the record straight, here is OCA’s position on vaccine safety, which applies to the current batch of Warp Speed experimental drugs, given Emergency Approval, for COVID-19:
The Organic Consumers Association is not “Anti-Vax,” but rather pro-vaccine safety. In addition to our concern over food and drug safety, we believe in an individual’s freedom of choice. The choice to vaccinate or not is a personal decision, not something to be dictated by Big Pharma corporations or non-elected medical Czars. Decisions of whether or not a person or their children should be vaccinated should be informed by full disclosure and careful and independent science.
Currently, most of the information about vaccines comes from the mainstream media (whose largest advertisers are Big Pharma), regurgitating propaganda from the pharmaceutical companies, who of course make enormous profits from selling vaccines. The corporate mass media’s supposedly factual information is compromised, since it arises from a clear conflict of interest.
For example, there has been almost no coverage of the fact that the new arsenal of COVID-19 vaccines, which are actually experimental drugs, and in some cases genetically engineered messenger RNA gene therapy drugs, never before injected into humans on a large scale, do not even claim, in their applications for emergency use approval from the government, to prevent infection, hospitalization, or death from COVID-19.
The only official claim by the vaccine and gene therapy manufacturers is that their enormously profitable (subsidized by government and military funds) products can reduce some of the milder or non-life threatening symptoms of COVID-19. The mass media continue to gloss over the fact that there have already been several thousand reported deaths and tens of thousands of serious adverse reactions from injections with these drugs, not to mention suspected long-term damage to human immune systems and health, and that there is absolutely no reason for children to be vaccinated.
And of course why should we be injecting experimental drugs into people at all when there are safe, effective, tried-and-true preventive measures (healthy food and natural health supplementation to strengthen our immune systems and generic drugs for at-home or outpatient treatment) to reduce the chances of hospitalization or death for those with serious pre-existing medical conditions.
As an independent, not-for-profit, public interest organization, OCA always strives to provide the evidence and facts that come from independent scientists, doctors and researchers. These non-Big Pharma healers and professionals have no financial conflicts of interest. Their interests lie in the health and safety of the wider population and their patients.
The OCA and other pro-vaccine safety groups are under attack from Big Pharma and the Silicon Valley billionaires who have invested heavily in Big Pharma. They realize that evidence-based facts, including the efficacy of healthy food, sunshine, and vitamin supplementation, are the biggest threats to them maximizing profits, while enjoying waivers of liability. Yet medical errors, adverse drug reactions, and medical malpractice remain the third leading cause of death in America.
Big Pharma and their allies want to stamp out freedom of speech, alternative medical information, and freedom of choice by banning us on social media and search engines. This is an attack on the very basis of freedom and democracy.
For a comprehensive look at the facts on COVID-19, here is a 186-page position paper. If you don’t have time to read this all at one sitting, please read the 17-page executive summary.

As the growing climate crisis impacts food producers across the country, the call for a Just Transition toward climate resilience is echoing throughout Congress, and USDA Secretary Vilsack is advocating market-based strategies and capital-intensive technologies to reduce emissions.
Countering Vilsack's response, a diverse group of food, farm, and environmental organizations is hosting a webinar intended to highlight the problems with market-based strategies, and provide local food producers’ perspectives on addressing the climate crisis through policy action.
Presented by the National Family Farm Coalition, Friends of the Earth US, Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, and Organic Consumers Association, the April 8th virtual webinar will feature the following speakers:
-Elizabeth Henderson, Northeast Organic Farmers Association-New York-Rosanna Marie Neil, Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance, Washington, D.C.-Mardy Townsend, Ashtabula-Lake Geauga Farmers Union, Ohio-Shannon Anderson, Powder River Basin Resource Council, Wyoming-Ben Lilliston, Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy-Jason Davidson, Friends of the Earth US-Alexis Baden-Mayer, Organic Consumers Association, moderating-Niaz Dorry, National Family Farm Coalition/Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance, Massachusetts, closing remarks

Monsanto/Bayer is apparently not the only chemical and pesticide company willing to literally kill us for profit.
As the UK Guardian points out:
“Around the world, the deadly dangers of a weedkiller called paraquat are well known. When working with the highly toxic herbicide, farmers and other users take care not to splash or spill even small amounts of the product, heeding regulatory warnings that just a tiny amount – if swallowed – will kill them.
‘If you ingest just three drops of paraquat you’re going to die,’ said the US farmer Cameron Peirce who uses the chemical sparingly in his fields of canola and mung beans in Kansas.
Switzerland, the home base of the paraquat maker Syngenta, has banned the chemical since 1989, and it has been banned for use in the EU since 2007, because of paraquat’s deadliness.
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) allows only restricted use of the pesticide in the United States by people certified and trained to apply it, such as landscapers and farmers. And the agency warns users on a government website that “one sip can kill”. Paraquat warning labels carry the symbol of death – a skull and crossbones.
Paraquat exposure is also believed by some scientists to cause Parkinson’s disease, and Syngenta is facing litigation on that issue – though it denies responsibility.”
