Fighting for Our Lives: We MUST Regain Our Food Democracy

Right now groups from across the globe, such as Public Citizen and Expose the TTP, are working to halt the fast-track approval of the TPP and similar trade agreements that would impose punishing restrictions on local democracy, giving multinational corporations like Monsanto and the biotech industry the unprecedented right to demand taxpayer compensation for policies that corporations deem a barrier to their profits – like GMO labeling and bans on these crops at the national, state or local level.
