It’s a Protest/Contest!! Just Say “No GMO”, and Win FREE Book and DVD

Genetically modified organism = bad.

Whole foods produced according to preservation of animal and earth = good.

Not to establish another binary…but yeah. We don’t like GMOs. They’re bad for our health, they’re bad for our planet, they put small farmers out of business, they put big business in power, and they satisfy fat cat CEOs at the expense of our earth. So this July, we’re just sayin’: NOPE. Wanna join?

All you have to do is:

1. Become a facebook fan of Chelsea Green Publishing. Click here to become a fan.

2. Enter the contest by adding a comment to the wall. Include one reason to reject GMOs (in terms of health, farming practices, human rights, animal rights, etc.). Short is fine, no worries.

Winners will receive one copy of each of the following:

The War on Bugs by Will Allen

Will Allen’s War on Bugs reveals how advertisers, editors, scientists, large scale farmers, government agencies, and even Dr. Seuss, colluded to convince farmers to use deadly chemicals, hormones, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in an effort to pad their wallets and control the American farm enterprise.

The World According to Monsanto by Marie-Monique Robin

This DVD will change the way you look at the world. Monsanto’s controversial past combines some of the most toxic products ever sold with misleading reports, pressure tactics, collusion, and attempted corruption. They now race to genetically engineer (and patent) the world’s food supply, which profoundly threatens our health, environment, and economy. Combining secret documents with first-hand accounts by victims, scientists, and politicians, this widely praised film exposes why Monsanto has become the world’s poster child for malignant corporate influence in government and technology.

The 3 winners will be chosen by random drawing on Friday, July 24th at 3pm.
