OH YES, YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE - THE DEPT OF JUSTICE WANTS TO HEAR FROM YOU
LINK The DOJ will be holding antitrust hearings and workshops in 2010 all over the country on the subject of the control of US food and food production by 3 or 4 multinational corporations. Justice wants to hear from you by Dec 31 - NOW - and they are listening.
Call a friend - Get together, and write a letter.
Here is the link to get your statement to the Department of Justice. If you saw "Food, Inc.", or have read this page, you know this is critical. Please pass it on, especially to friends who are farmers. We do have the power to make change. Let's do it.
...And if you want to know what is in the food you buy - look at the address on anything packaged, & write or call the company. Tell them if you don't want genetically modified, irradiated, nano-particle altered, or chemically treated ingredients in your food.
Tell them if you want the food labeled to reflect that. THEY WILL LISTEN.
Get together and do it with your friends, or club, or coworkers, or church. Start with that package of corn tortillas and that box of soymilk, and do it now. You do have power!
