The House of Representatives voted against 90 percent of Americans who are in favor of mandatory labeling of GMOs by voting in favor of the of H.R. 1599 or otherwise referred to as the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act. But activists are doing all they can to prevent this bill from moving forward.

H.R. 1599 is a bill supports the biotech industry and junk food industry and the likes of companies such as Monsanto’s over consumer's rights. 

According to Organic Consumers Association, 275 members of the U.S. House of Representatives voted against "truth and transparency, against science and against the more than century-old right of states to legislate on matters relating to food safety and labeling." The House sold out to "multi-million dollar public relations and lobbying campaigns built on lies and deception."

 

But activists are rallying together to stop the bill from passing through the U.S. Senate.

In a statement from the organization, Campaign for Liberty:

Whatever your views on GMOs, there is no Constitutional justification for the federal government to preempt state laws in this area. There certainly is no justification for Congress to preempt private sector efforts to meet consumer demands for non-GMO foods, while allowing those who support the use of GMOs to do so.

Be part of the growing movement, backed by science and motivated by human and environmental health that's up against "powerful industries with bottomless pockets" and stand with OCA as they continue the fight for GMO labeling.

Were members of the House deceived or did they simply vote with their wallets?
