Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller turns up in everything from Cheerios, to orange juice to ice cream.
Harmful levels of arsenic and lead found in a long list of popular children’s fruit juices.
Industrial chemicals (PFOA and PFOS) linked to kidney and testicular cancer, hypertension and other ailments allowed to pollute your drinking water.
As the saying goes, if you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. Corporations get a free pass to poison and pollute, in the name of “free-market enterprise.” And our lawmakers and regulatory agency officials, addicted to corporate campaign contributions, let it happen.
It has to stop. We all have to help.
OCA will keep up the pressure on corporations, with consumer campaigns and ongoing and soon-to-be-announced lawsuits.
We’ll also crank up our lobbying arm to help bring down the politicians who betray us, and elect new leaders who will work for us, not Wall Street.
But we can’t just expose the problems. We also have to shine a light on the solutions. A rapidly scaled up organic regenerative food and farming system will give us cleaner water, healthier food, more vibrant local economies. It can even go a long way toward solving our climate crisis.
We have a lot of work to do this year. Can we count on your support?
