Alternet - Jan 31 - 2010 - The USDA has ruled that farmers are now free to plant GE alfalfa, and USDA won't even keep track of who plants it where. The implications are huge. ==== Editor's Note: What can we Canadians do, you might ask? OUR LAST HOPE in defending against such Frankenfoods is to make sure OUR PARLIAMENT PASSES the bill, below.

The USDA Just Announced Final Approval of Monsanto's GE Alfalfa Take Action NOW to Demand President Obama Reverse this Decision Dear L, Genetically Engineered Alfalfa Has Been Approved, But President Obama Can Have the Final Say Demand President Obama Stop GE Alfalfa! We just found out that Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack approved Monsanto's genetically engineered alfalfa for widespread planting this spring. This is outrageous and wrong, and it will hurt organic farmers. Demand that President Obama reverse this disastrous approval. The USDA decision to allow GE alfalfa to be planted unleashes another unnecessary genetically engineered crop into our environment and puts organic farmers at risk of widespread GE contamination. The agency did no real assessment of the harm that GE alfalfa could do, and caved to pressure from big agribusiness to approve this genetically engineered crop before the spring planting season.
