Local foodies might be proud to learn that Colorado's 2nd district (Denver suburbs, Boulder, Vail, Grand Lake and Idaho Springs) is one of two nationwide currently providing the most activists in the Millions Against Monsanto and Factory Farms Truth-in-Labeling campaign.

You may see me at your local grocery store soon.
  • You may see me at your local grocery store soon.

As detailed in this week's Organic Consumers Association newsletter, the group is urging willing participants to engage in a guerrilla stickering campaign:

This month, the Millions Against Monsanto Truth-in-Labeling Campaign will start taking matters into our own hands. We're sticking "Oh No! Is It GMO?" labels on non-organic foods likely to contain GMOs as well as non-organic meat, dairy, and eggs coming from animals raised in CAFOs, (Confined Animal Feeding Operations), where they are force-fed GM grains. Utilizing OCA's petitions, you can send grocers photos of your handiwork.

First, download the Non-GMO Shopping guide and our "Oh No! Is It GMO?" sticker from the links provided. Take them to your local grocery store, Whole Foods or Trader Joe's and label the products that you suspect to be contaminated with GMOs. Take a picture of the product with the new "truth label" and then send it to your grocers using the "See Me" function at the end of the action alerts below.

Obviously, you will have to visit the OCA's website to navigate to the links mentioned in the above paragraph.

While you're there, you may also want to listen to Dr. Mercola interview Ronnie Cummins, the OCA's director, on the topic of big green business' supposed betrayal of the organic food movement.

There will be various protests regarding genetic engineering/modification throughout the u.s. on 3/26/11.
The purpose of the protest is primarily to,

1. Get all food products containing genetically engineered/modified organisms, labeled.

2. Get mandatory FDA testing of genetically engineered/modified organisms before they are allowed to be used for human consumption.

3. Get better regulations for those growing/keeping genetically engineered/modified organisms, to reduce the contamination of organic farms etc.

If you wish to participate in the protest and want to find out where the nearest protest to you is, or you can not attend a protest but would like to sign petitions regarding labeling genetically engineered/modified foods etc. please click on these links for more information.
