TWO GENETIC ENGINEERING ACTION ALERTS
(1) BIO GOES TO WASHINGTON: TAKE ACTION TODAY
The Biotech Industry Organization (BIO), composed of Monsanto, Aventis, Dupont, and other biotech corporations, will meet with House and Senate representatives next week in Washington, D.C., to press an agenda of
- more genetically engineered crops,
- no mandatory labeling of genetically engineered food, and
- government support for opening up foreign markets to these genetic experiments
Please urge your Senators and Representative to resist these initiatives. Tell them that you don't want to eat genetically engineered food!
Please take action now. To send an email directly to all your representatives, just visit
and follow the instructions there. Please be sure to provide your address and zip code so that you can receive a written response to your concerns.
Thank you for your support.
(2) CONTACT KRAFT FOODS TODAY!
Kraft Foods is holding its annual shareholders meeting on Earth Day, Monday, April 22. In concert with that event, thousands of concerned Americans are contacting Kraft Foods to ask the company to remove genetically engineered ingredients from its product line.
Please contact Kraft Foods immediately by telephone or email to support this initiative.
BY PHONE: You can call Kraft at
Simply tell the staff that you would like Kraft Foods to remove genetically engineered ingredients from its product line.
BY EMAIL: You can email Kraft Foods directly by visiting
and following the instructions there.
Even if you have previously telephoned or sent an email message to Kraft Foods, please telephone again and/or send another email now. Kraft Foods needs to hear from concerned citizens more than once until the company agrees to remove genetically engineered ingredients from its product line.
Thanks for your timely action.
