Tony Mitra’s petition at change.org to pressure local governments to begin testing food for glyphosate
Consider signing Tony Mitra’s petition at change.org to pressure local governments to begin testing food for glyphosate.
This is an excerpt from the petition summary:
The governments, both in the US and Canada, we have unofficially learned, have started testing our food on the quiet, for levels of contamination by glyphosate. But for reasons best known to them, Government officials are not talking about it, nor are the Governments disclosing the results of these tests to the public.
It is therefore the right time, we feel, to start a grassroots people’s movement, from the bottom up, to lean on our Governments, and to coax them to start testing food for glyphosate – for the people, and to make the results public. No ifs and buts.
This is not about endlessly debating if glyphosate is safe to be in our food. This is about people’s right to know how much of it is in which kinds of food and to deal with the information the way they see fit.
So far, the only block that appears to lean on our Government successfully is the corporate lobby. It is time the people entered the scene and make the playing field even.
This petition is to not only to demand that different levels of our government start engaging in testing our food for the people, but also in learning how to start grassroots movements to take back control of our food web, food safety and food security.
