“The time has come to reclaim the stolen harvest and celebrate the growing and giving of good food as the highest gift and most revolutionary act.” - Dr. Vandana Shiva
Fall harvest season is almost here. It's that time when the hard work of planting and tending gives way to reaping the benefits.
You may not realize it yet, but the anti-GMO, pro-safe and healthy food movement is on the verge of a harvest of its own.
But we need your help to bring it in.
With only two days to go, we are barely halfway toward our third-quarter fundraising goal. Can you pitch in today, any amount, to keep this work going? You can donate online, by mail or by phone, details here.
Like you, I was discouraged when our Monsanto-owned Congress failed us on GMO labeling. We didn’t let that loss stop us.
We hope you won't stop, either. We still need you. Because with your help, we will win so much more than just a label.
I’m happy to report that all signs point to the breakdown of Monsanto’s degenerative agriculture system, and the birth of a truly regenerative food and farming system.
Momentum is on our side. Monsanto and the rest of Big Ag are under siege.
Farmers and others who have non-Hodgkin lymphoma because they were exposed to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide have filed highly publicized lawsuits.
Those lawsuits led to the discovery of evidence that Monsanto colluded with the EPA to knowingly deceive the public about the health risks of Roundup and glyphosate.
U.S. Right to Know, a group OCA partially funds, has worked relentlessly with mainstream media to get this critical information to the public.
Farmers are rising up, too—including those whose crops recently were devastated by Monsanto’s dicamba-resistant weed killer.
More importantly, consumers are fighting back—and winning.
The citizens of Tonganoxie, Kansas, have stalled Tyson’s plans to build a $320-million poultry factory farm.
OCA is working with activists in Nebraska to stop Costco from building an even larger factory farm in their state.
And our lawsuit against Sanderson Farms, whose chicken contains a long list of drugs and antibiotics, is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to taking on Big Poultry. Stay tuned.
With your help, we’re also taking on the industrial dairy by exposing companies like Ben & Jerry’s which pretend to be “sustainable.”
We’ll use our testing of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, which contains glyphosate, to pressure the Unilever-owned brand to go organic—and begin the transformation of the U.S. Dirty Dairy industry.
You should be proud of your place in this movement. Thanks to you, it’s only a matter of time before we stop Big Ag, Big Biotech, Big Food and Big Pharma from stealing our harvest.
Right now, we’re at risk of having to cut back on our work unless we meet our operating budget by the end of this month. Please help keep the momentum going by making a generous donation today—details here.
As always, thank you!
P.S. Donate today, and we’ll give 15% of your donations to impoverished farmers in Mexico whose homes were devastated by recent earthquakes. You can donate online, by mail or by check, details here.
