In Exile

GMO salmon is already headed to grocery store shelves. Burger King just rolled out its GMO Impossible Burger.

Now the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture are jockeying for control over the approval process for more genetically engineered animals, based on which agency can rush the process faster.

As poet, farmer and wise man Wendell Berry says:

“The passive American consumer, sitting down to a meal of pre-prepared food, confronts inert, anonymous substances that have been processed, dyed, breaded, sauced, gravied, ground, pulped, strained, blended, prettified, and sanitized beyond resemblance to any part of any creature that ever lived. The products of nature and agriculture have been made, to all appearances, the products of industry. Both eater and eaten are thus in exile from biological reality.”

How do we counter the influence and dominance of corporations whose only motive is profit?

By becoming active consumers. By standing up to powerful corporations. By promoting solutions and getting involved in the battle for policies that support those solutions. 

We're committed to all of the above. But we need your help. Thank you!
