An agtivist with chutzpa might want to perform a GMO label action at the Food Safety Summit where Monsanto-lobbyist-now-Obama’s-Food-Safety-Czar, Michael R. Taylor, plans to wax tyrannical at a Town Hall on April 19.
For a mere grand, you can attend the entire 3-day Food Safety Summit set for April 17-19 in Washington, D.C. There you’ll get to hear Taylor describe how federal and state regulators will manage the inspectional requirements of the boondoggle Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
As Deputy Commissioner for Foods of the US Food and Drug Admin, Taylor also promises to whine about the lack of funding for his FSMA vision of stopping natural food production in the US during his April 18 workshop.
He’s seeking a $3 billion budget to “modernize” our food system. By modernize, he means to hyper-regulate the small producer out of existence, while criminalizing natural food production and trade.
After his workshop, chemical company and GMO giant DuPont will announce this year’s winner of the Food Quality Award. Can’t wait to see who they select. You can be sure a completely organic, unprocessed, unadulterated, natural food won’t take the prize.
The next morning, Taylor will co-host a Town Hall with the USDA’s Under Secretary for Food Safety, Elisabeth Hagen.
You can deliver a question to Taylor now, which he may address during the Town Hall. Here’s the question I submitted: “Why are you opposed to raw milk and GMO food labeling?”
Taylor’s currently under fire to be fired. Several consumer groups have joined to push for his dismissal from the FDA. You can sign a petition to hand him his pink slip here.
