Oppose the Withdrawal of Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices!

“Big Ag and the Trump administration are attacking organic farming. In an outrageous assault on organic agriculture, Trump’s USDA is moving fast to kill protections for livestock on organic farms. This is the biggest attack on organic agriculture in almost twenty years.” -Friends of the Earth (FOE)

You only have until January 17th to speak up! 

Tell the USDA you OPPOSE the withdrawal of the Organic Livestock and Poultry Practices rule!Image result for organic poultry
    
       ‘The organic livestock rule provides animals on organic farms access to real outdoor space, ample space to move around, and protection from unnecessary physical alterations. Most organic farmers already meet these standards. The rule would ensure that everyone using the organic label lives up to the humane conditions that consumers expect from organic. The rule is overwhelmingly supported by organic farmers, consumers, and animal advocates.” -Friends of the Earth (FOE)

Can You Help FOE (Friends of the Earth) Stop Monsanto From Using Bee-Killing Pesticides on our Lands???

About 300 million pounds of Roundup® are used each year. That’s almost a pound of pesticides for every American – and represents a 900% increase from just 20 years ago! Over the same period of time, monarch butterfly populations have fallen by nearly 90%. That’s no coincidence: Glyphosate is toxic to humans and pollinators alike, and it’s putting our food system in jeopardy. But rather than protecting our health and our environment, the EPA is caving to Big Ag. Image result for monsanto

Friends of the Earth is fighting back against Monsanto and its dangerous chemicals. We’re calling on the EPA to put our planet first and revoke Monsanto’s license for glyphosate. But we won’t win unless members like you stand with us. We need to hear where 35,000 people stand before midnight tomorrow.
