Stop the Monsanto Riders

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

Stop the Monsanto riders. Unless a citizen's army of farmers and consumers can stop them, Congress is likely to ram these dangerous riders through any day now.
There are currently 209,632 signatures. NEW goal - We need 225,000 signatures!

Petition Background

So-called 'Monsanto riders,' quietly slipped into the multi-billion dollar FY 2013 Agricultural Appropriations bill, would require - not just allow, but require - the Secretary of Agriculture to grant a temporary permit for the planting or cultivation of a genetically engineered crop, even if a federal court has ordered the planting be halted until an Environmental Impact Statement is completed. All the farmer or the biotech producer has to do is ask.
