Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin - A Governor of The People.

IN VERMONT, the GMO battle between the people and corporate greed rages on. Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin signed GMO Labeling Bill H.112 into law. But the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), made up of companies like Monsanto, Syngent...a, Kellogg's, Nestlé, and General Mills, seems to be allergic to the democratic process - and fearing that consumers will reject genetically engineered foods if labeled - has sued Vermont to overturn the law. This suit is in addition to their attempts at the federal level to outlaw states' rights to pass laws mandating GMO labeling.

Vermont will fight for the people, but they will need help. The state has created the
Food Fight Fund VT to accept donations from anyone who wishes to financially contribute to help VT mount a powerful defense against the GMA lawsuit. Learn more and donate here:
