Monsanto’s dream GMO labeling bill could become law any day now. All it needs is President Obama’s signature.

But today, while the bill is still just a bill (and not a law), we need your signature. 

If you haven’t already, please sign this White House petition today, asking Obama to veto the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act.

You may have already signed our MoveOn.org petition to Obama. If so, thank you! But we also need your signature on the official White House petition site. Because 100,000 signatures (we’re at about 75,000 now) will trigger an automatic response from the White House.

Obama should veto this bill that would preempt Vermont’s GMO labeling law, which took effect July 1.

When he was campaigning for President, Obama promised to label GMOs.

And after he was sworn in as President, he issued an executive order advising Congress not to preempt state laws. (The DARK Act could unnecessarily preempt more than 100 state and municipal laws)!

And yet, according to news reports, Obama plans to sign this bill that denies the 90 percent of Americans who support labeling the right to know what’s in their food—by hiding that information behind confusing QR codes that require expensive smartphones, reliable internet service.

Last week, OCA and other groups delivered nearly 250,000 signatures on numerous petitions, asking Obama to veto the DARK Act. But we didn’t yet have 100,000 on the official White House petition.

Can we push the number up to over 100,000 signatures before Obama signs this awful bill? Please sign today—thanks!

TAKE ACTION: Sign the White House petition asking President Obama to veto the DARK Act! 

Call the White House 202-456-1111 or 202-456-1414 to leave your comment! The comment line is open from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
