Right2Know

Dear Eminem,

This October thousands of concerned Americans will March from New York to DC to create awareness about GMO foods. At the very least, don’t we deserve to know which foods contain the harmful ingredients?

You Don’t Have to Stand Alone Against Genetically Engineered Food (GMOs)!

Together Let’s Demand GMO Labeling Now! 

Join the GMO Right2Know March Oct 1-16, 2011

Most Americans agree we have a right to know what’s in our food, and a right to choose safe, healthy food for our families and ourselves.  And yet 80% of the packaged foods in America contain Genetically Engineered ingredients that have not been proven safe, and are not labeled!

Between October 1st and October 16th of this year, marchers from all across the country will be walking from New York City to the White House, in Washington DC, demanding labeling of all Genetically Engineered Foods, in what has come to be called the GMO Right2Know march. Come walk with us – step-by-step we will take back our Right to Know!

Genetically Modified Organisms  (GMOs) endanger our health, the environment, and our farmer’s livelihoods.  For too long, biotechnology companies like Monsanto have lobbied against labeling products containing their patented plants – plants which are specially designed to be sprayed with cancer-causing weed-killers, and plants which produce pesticides in every one of their cells.

The GMO Right2Know March is the first of it’s kind in America, and will have daily events between its kickoff in New York City and its finale at the White House, in Washington, DC. Come for the knowledgeable speakers, fun presentations, camping, and much, much more!  Now is your chance to make your voice heard.  We will win back our Right to Know what’s in our food – one step at a time!

Sign up, bring a group, and join the Right2Know community!  We are looking for walkers, bikers, drivers, volunteers, cheerleaders, hosts, and any other supporters out there!

Join us as we march from New York City to the White House in Washington DC from October 1 – October 16, 2011 for this historic march.

Why Get Involved?

These recent actions have created momentum to rally for the right to know about GMOs:

  • The decisions by the USDA to approve genetically modified Round-Up Ready™alfalfa seeds to be grown without restrictions.
  • The court decision to hold Bayer responsible for the LibertyLink contamination of rice.
  • The pre-emptive action by organic farmers and seed sellers to sue Monsanto for protection from patents on genetically
    modified seed.
  • The growth of the U.S. organic industry to $28.6 billion in 2010
  • The participation of hundreds of companies in the Non-GMO Project Grassroots organizing of the March 26th Right to Know Rallies and the response of 68,478 letters to Congress asking for GMO Labeling.
