Dear Friends, This is a matter of the most serious consequence for all of us.
Nowhere in this bill does it state it applies only to food for re-sale.
It refers to all food grown anywhere - including in our own gardens.
Please call your Senators and Representatives, the White House immediately. Please share this information with everyone you know.
Our capacity to feed ourselves without poisonous chemicals and genetically engineered foods is at stake. Imagine that we would not be permitted even to organicially garden in our own backyard. You may be subject to $1,000,000 in fines if you do not tell the government about every stick of celery you plant
Subject: House & Senate will vote on bill to end organic gardening
For goodness sake any sane person know why?
House and Senate will vote on bill to end organic gardening.. . HR 875
!n the name of freedom,
Please pass this around. It is Senate Bill 875 and Senate Bill 425. We need to get the provisions out that effect organic farming. Or get a protection in it. A call to your representatives both Senate and House will help.
____________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _
THIS IS REAL, FOLKS! PASS THIS ALONG TO ALL CONCERNED ON
YOUR MAILING LISTS & CALL TOMORROW!
Subject: House and Senate bills to kill all organic farms (FAST track bills in 2 weeks)
Food Safety Modernization Act (HR 875): Criminalization of Organic Farms
House H.R. 875
Senate S 425
IF YOU LIKE A GARDEN OR BUY ORGANIC FOOD YOU BETTER GET ON THAT PHONE TO YOUR CONGRESS CRITTERS N O W !
There is an enormous rush to get this into law within the next 2 weeks before people realize what is happening.
Main backer and lobbyist is (guess who) Monsanto
Bill will require organic farms to use specific fertilizers and poisonous insect sprays dictated by the newly formed agency to "make sure there is no danger to the public food supply".
This will include backyard gardens that grow food only for a family and not for sales.
THIS IS DICTATORSHIP in any way you look at it.
If this passes then NO more heirloom clean seeds but only Monsanto genetically altered seeds that are now showing up with unexpected diseases in humans.
There is a video on the subject.
The name on this outrageous food plan is Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009
(Really makes it sound like the feds are trying protect us. LIES )
Let me be crystal clear here......
This has NOTHING to do with food safety.
This is only about TOTAL CONTROL by the feds in our lives.
Get on that phone Monday and burn up the wires.
Get anyone else you can to do the same thing.
The House and Senate WILL pass this if they are not massively threatened
with loss of their position.... . they only fear your voice and your vote.

biyu, I think there's another thread here about the same subject. There may be so other details there. From what I remember no where will be exempt, even Canada, if this becomes so. It's a worldwide thing, but do check that other thread. I might be foggy on it.
I went and looked for the other posts and noticed one near this one, too.

What you do is contact your state representative(the crook that sits in DC representing your state, and who's vote counts.), and ask questions. Do a search if you don't know who yours is, then call the office, then harass and find out info, then come back here and post what you know. I will do the same, as should everybody on this forum.
PLEASE DO NOT FORGET ABOUT THIS, POST PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can read this bill and any others you are interested in at www.govtrack.us. It contains the entire language of Bill 875. I think it is important that one contact their local, state and federal representatives to let them know of concerns.

This might break it down into laymans terms better. It was updated recently so it is being watched. http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/organic.as p
Don't forget there might be other information at the other 2 threads I posted links to that might answer some of your questions or give you other outside links to look at.

I have called Doc Hastings office in DC, he represents Washington among others. I was told this is a non-partisan issue that basically revolves around money. Money for Monsanto, by putting the organic farms(anybody that uses organic methods) out of business by making it really hard to keep doing what they're doing. I was also told to spread the word, and to contact all the representatives of my state. This is like the "bee issue", people are too lazy and uninformed to take action. So please, get moving people, that's if you really care about your health.
