SUBHEAD: Whole Foods joins with Monsanto to support sham GMO labeling bill in US Senate.

By Mike Adams on 29 June 2016 for Natural News -

Image above: Can you be a globalized food retailer and oppose Big Ag? It seems the answer in "NO!" From (https://stakeholder13.wordpress.com/2015/03/31/the-wholefoods-way-how-ethical-is-a-globalized-organic-food-retailer/).

UPDATE: Whole Foods was just caught blatantly LYING about everything covered in this article. CEO Walter Robb has been captured on video admitting total support for Monsanto-engineered GMO fake labeling law that kills Vermont GMO labeling bill. 

Whole Foods takes to social media to LIE to everyone, denying everything, even while Robb is captured on video... click here for the breaking news report on Whole Foods CAUGHT LYING.

According to breaking news reports, Whole Foods Market (WFM) has gone full rogue, partnering with Monsanto to kill GMO labeling across America under the guise of a new, fraudulent "GMO labeling compromise" in the U.S. Senate that's actually a fake labeling law requiring no clear labeling of GMOs whatsoever.

Food Democracy Now has issued this red alert, naming the sellout corporations (including Whole Foods) that have betrayed health-conscious consumers with a sellout deal that outlaws GMO labeling nationwide.

The deception on food labeling has never been greater. With this act of ultimate betrayal, Whole Foods cements its position as a poison-pushing distribution partner of Monsanto, the world's most evil corporation that produces poisonous, deadly crops laced with bt toxin and glyphosate, a cancer-linked herbicide.

With this betrayal of consumers, Whole Foods might as well now be called, "POISON FOODS" because that's what they're pushing.

Whole Foods Joins Monsanto to Kill Labeling

SUBHEAD: Let Vermont's historic GMO labeling bill stand! 64 other countries label GMOs, why not America?

By Dave Murphy on 28 June 2016 for Food Democracy Now -

Image above: This labeling scheme requiring the use of a scanning device is not an honest and equitable food labeling plan designed to inform the public. (https://stakeholder13.wordpress.com/2015/03/31/the-wholefoods-way-how-ethical-is-a-globalized-organic-food-retailer/).

Right now we’re being betrayed in Washington D.C. by a group of donation-hungry Senators and a handful of corrupt corporate organic companies that have just brokered an outrageous dealbehind our backs in an effort to kill mandatory GMO labeling.

Just days before Vermont’s historic first-in-the-nation bill that's scheduled to go into effect this Friday, July 1st, an unholy alliance for corporate interests has crafted an outrageous corporate sellout by Monsanto, Just Label It, the Organic Trade Association, Stonyfield, Smucker's, Organic Valley and Whole Foods who are desperately trying to trample our basic democratic rights to protect their corporate profits. This is treason!

When asked to comment on this monstrous sellout, Whole Foods CEO Walter Robb called this treacherous backroom deal an "incredible thing" and claimed the food movement must move on and "talk about much bigger issues."

And thanks to Monsanto and this corrupt cabal of organic executives, all the provisions of the new bill are optional and would exempt 85% of GMOs planted today, including those from all of Monsanto's Roundup Ready GMO seeds.

This bill toothless, but provides Monsanto and America’s most corrupt food companies the chance to continue to avoid GMO labels, while keeping the doors open for a flood of campaign cash from the likes of Monsanto, DuPont, Pepsi, Smucker’s and General Mills.

Let Vermont's historic GMO labeling bill stand! 64 other countries label GMOs, why not America? Join us to make a stand! And take 30 seconds to call the Senate switchboard at (202) 224-3121.

Take action here and pass it on! (http://action.fooddemocracynow.org/sign/dont_let_Monsanto_and_organic_elite_kill_GMO_labeling/?aktmid=tm203223.ukbN84&t=4&source=conf)

Americans should have the same right as citizens of 64 other countries to know whether or not their food contains genetically engineered ingredients, don't let a handful of corrupt Senators and corporate CEOs rob you and your family of this basic democratic right! It's time to stand it - Every voice counts!

Thanks for taking action!

Sanders to fight sham label in Senate

SOURCE: Bernie Sanders (info@BernieSanders.com)
SUBHEAD: Sanders vows to stop Senate GMO labeling legislation . Could be voted on today. 

By Sanders' Staff on 1 July 2016 in Island Breath -

Image above: A real GMO content lable. However, Island Breath would prefer if labeling identified individual items in "Ingredient:" listing. For exampl, in this case modify "Sweet Corn" to "GMO Sweet Corn".  From (https://stakeholder13.wordpress.com/2015/03/31/the-wholefoods-way-how-ethical-is-a-globalized-organic-food-retailer/).

The corporate interests are at it again. Monsanto, agribusiness and the bio-tech industry have spent hundreds of millions of dollars trying to overturn legislation passed by Vermont, Connecticut, Maine and Alaska that calls for the labeling of GMO food. In fact, they are moving aggressively now because Vermont's strong law goes into effect today.

This legislation is important because people have a right to know what is in the food they and their children eat. The more information we have, the better consumers we become. This is not a radical idea. It is why over 60 countries around the world have passed GMO labeling laws.

Unfortunately, the major agribusiness and bio-tech companies disagree. They do not believe people have a right to know what's in the food they eat. That is why they have spent hundreds of millions of dollars in lobbying and campaign contributions to overturn the GMO right-to-know legislation that states have already passed and that many other states are on the verge of passing.

A bill in the Senate would overrule Vermont's law, and prevent states from passing similar laws. This bill, introduced by Senators Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) will be coming up for a vote on Wednesday or Thursday of next week. It must be defeated.

Can you write to your senators today and ask them to oppose the GMO bill?

You can click here and we'll direct you to write your senators immediately.
