Want to stop Roundup spraying? Then tell Congress to do just that
Have you ever wanted to tell off someone in high places about something you really didn’t like? Well, you now have a chance to do so regarding the dangerous agricultural herbicide Roundup®.
The Organic Consumers Organization’s lobbying arm Citizens Regeneration Lobby is a 501(c)(4) organization, which has an online petition that allows consumers to tell their individual members of Congress what they think about Roundup®.
CRL is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit education and grassroots lobbying organization that builds local, state, regional and national support, among citizens and government officials, for local and regional organic regenerative agriculture and policies.
Here are some statistics from CRL’s petition page, which is individually addressed to your personal members of Congress, so that’s why you ought to join CRL here https://us.e-activist.com/page/5899/subscribe/1 in order to receive your individualized Petition to sign. After signing it, it automatically will be sent to your proper members of Congress.
In exchange, the House of Representatives’ version of the Farm Bill, written by House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (who has taken $10,000 from Monsanto this year) includes language that would prohibit local governments from restricting pesticide use on private property.
Would you like your local government to ban Monsanto’s carcinogenic Roundup herbicide?
Your local government has had that power since 1991, when the Supreme Court ruled that the Federal law regulating the manufacture, sale and use of pesticides permitted local governments to impose more stringent regulations of their own.
TAKE ACTION: Tell your U.S. Senators and Representative to get Monsanto’s toxic tricks out of the Farm Bill. Protect local rights to ban dangerous pesticides!
