Whether we’re talking about toxic pesticides (such as Monsanto/Bayer’s Roundup), GMOs, highly processed foods, pharmaceutical drug side effects, environmental pollution, greenwashing, or special interest control over domestic and foreign affairs, OCA’s mission, since our founding in the early 1990s, has been to expose cover ups, corporate crime, and dangerous practices—offering up positive solutions.
We have never been a single-issue organization, nor have we shied away from controversies such as 9/11, the Anthrax attacks (2001), the Iraq War (2003), stolen elections (in 2000 and 2004), the degradation of organic standards (1998-2021), and the need for a revolutionary transformation of U.S. food and farming as outlined by Bernie Sanders in his proposed Green New Deal (2019-2020).
OCA has never pretended that organic and regenerative food, farming, and public health are separate “issues” divorced from politics, legislation, and economic control. There can be no healthy, organic food and farming and vibrant public health on a burnt and poisoned planet, nor organic justice and Fair Trade for all under a dictatorship of out-of-control corporations, surveillance capitalists, mad scientists, and politicians. OCA has always been politically independent. We attack Democrats and Republicans when they are wrong, and give them credit when credit is due.
