Any Care2Action members have a moment to write a petition?

Hey! I noticed a petition on Care2Action today that pushes for support of the Global Food Security Act of 2009, which is supposed to put a dent in world hunger. I've got news for you. The Global Food Security Act has clauses in it that MANDATE that foreign nations plant GMO crops and do research on GMOs. The bill is nothing more than an act of agricultural imperialism (or, perhaps even food terrorism); it's a brainchild of the biotech and industrial agriculture industries. It's taking about $10 billion in taxpayer dollars and using it to force GMOs on foreign populations. Contrary to popular belief, GMOs will NOT end world hunger. They often produce lower yields or fail entirely, and while they may provide some nutrition, that nutrition is accompanied by DNA-altering toxins that nature never intended to be produced by the foods we eat! Scientific evidence is mounting that GMOs threaten biodiversity and are harmful to multiple organ systems and the nervous system. Are there any Care2 members out there who'd be willing to set up a petition OPPOSING the Global Food Security Act of 2009 on the grounds that it threatens the health and agricultural sovereignty of foreign nations? There are so many better solutions to world hunger, especially ORGANIC agriculture. Think companion planting, permaculture, publicly-owned gardens, vertical farming, integrated farming etc. More than anyone, impoverished countries need seeds to be COMMON PROPERTY, not costly franken-seeds that they have to buy from Monsanto again every planting season. For what I assume is a technology-related reason, I can't seem to set up a petition myself. Can you? (Note: You might want to set the signature goal to 20,000, to offset the 10k signatures on the petition supporting the bill).

Great job. Our big agriculture companies have some big time ethical problems.

Who is this Care2Action? Are you sure the corporations aren't actually sponsoring the site?
