Organic Consumers Association Pressures Hillary Clinton on Her GMO Stance

Nearly a year after the Organic Consumers Association launched a petition asking Hillary Clinton to support consumers, not Monsanto, Clinton still hasn't announced her stance on GMO labeling. But OCA is pressuring the presidential candidate to stand with consumers’ and the right to know.

While Clinton "expressed her enthusiastic support for GMO agriculture" at the BIO International Convention in San Diego, California in 2014, she has yet to come out as pro-biotech or pro-consumers’ right to know.

But the OCA is pressuring Clinton to disclose her position on labeling before the primaries.

 

The democratic nominee hopeful is not only being pressured by OCA, yet Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is running as a Democrat, poses a threat to Clinton and he has been clear about his stance on GMOs—he wants mandatory labeling of GMO foods and ingredients.

Based on a poll, more than "90 percent of Americans want food manufacturers to be required to disclose GMO ingredients on their packaging, according to OCA. But Monsanto and Big Food continue to spend millions of dollars to put an end to GMO labeling.

According to OCA, "We, the consumer movement for healthy food, a clean environment and corporate transparency, will have to demand answers if candidates like Clinton won't voluntarily disclose her position once and for all."

So where does Clinton stand on GMO labeling?

  • Hillary Clinton has proven that her ONLY interest in politics is the coin-slot in her forehead. As a consequence, the ONLY option with this creature is to insure that she NEVER gains a position of power again.
