The graphic pretty much says it all, but if you’d like to read up on this abomination of a law, try these few articles.

The good news is that this is only a temporary law. It is set to expire in 6 months. The bad news is that unless we make an un-ignorable stink, it’s likely to become permanent. Here are a few places you can go to sign petitions, learn more about various action plans, and make your voice heard.
Food Democracy Now!
Organic Consumers Association
Center For Food Safety

It may take an epic battle, but together, we can defeat Monsanto.

In the meantime, avoiding processed foods and growing your own when you can seems like the best defense. Here are a couple of places where you can find heirloom and non-genetically modified seeds:
Botanical Interests
Seeds Now
The Ark
