GMO Free Josephine County has successfully put forth a motion to ban all GMO planting on their beautiful Oregonian countryside. The very first line of the ordinance tells legislatures, and the likes of Monsanto and Dow just what they can do with their suicide seeds:
“The Purpose of this Ordinance is to:
Maintain and protect seed sovereignty and local control, free from outside corporate interests and unnecessary and overreaching preemption by the state and federal governments, of this County’s agriculture, environment, public health, economy and private property rights as they pertain to genetic contamination from genetically engineered plants.”
The ordinance goes on to forbid any corporation from interfering in state or county rights and disallows them from raising, planting, propagating or growing the seeds that have poisoned our nation.
