PUSH BACK! LET’S HEAR IT FOR PUSH BACK! AND THEN, LET’S HAVE A WHOLE LOT MORE OF SAME.
Using the Courts, the Court of Public Opinion, Political Pressure, Radio and TV, Video Action Items in the Health Freedom Action eAlerts and similar publications, We, The People, are, in fact, exerting our power. We do not win every battle, but we win and win and win when we push together. This time, the victory is the reversal of a clearance for a dangerous GMO to be grown without restraint or supervision.
Children are among the major consumers of sugar. Sugar beets are among the major sources of sugar. Genetically modified sugar beets are adapted to survive the use of deadly chemicals. That is, in fact, despite the propaganda and hype, the only reason that most GMOs are created: to create an after market for deadly chemicals. Of course, the sales of GMO seed help the bottom line along for the Uber Cartel but the real money is in the increased use of, and subsequent sale of, the profitable chemicals which the same companies make. Oh, yes, of course they are also drug companies so they get you coming into the food cycle and the hospital when they sell you drugs for the conditions and diseases which their chemicals and dangerous GMO “foods” cause you to develop.
And, then there is the lack of safety information on consuming GMOs. All independent science makes it clear that there is no reason to believe that GMO foods are safe since their consequences are to damage the DNA OF EVERY CELL IN THE BODY, including the cells of children still unborn. All this, of course, without oversight by the FDA or USDA.
Do you know what happens when people eat genetically modified sugar? No? Neither do I. But when mammals eat GMO soy, their offspring die, or are born stunted. Their fertility is impaired, their GI tracts and kidneys and immune systems are impaired, too. So is just about every other part of their bodies. It stands to reason, of course, since the DNA and its dangerous products have never existed before and we simply lack the mechanisms to get rid of them once they are in our bodies.
Then there are super weeds and super pests and genetic contamination and…. well, it sort of makes sense to feed them to children if you are a genocidalist AND a drug company owner, don’t you think?
We rejoice that approval for GMO sugar beets was vacated (e.g., canceled) pending an environmental impact statement. But it was not vacated on the grounds that these products, once genetically modified, are unstudied, unsafe, unnecessary and must be stopped before they literally contaminate every plant and animal on earth in what is heading toward the greatest cataclysm in the history of life on this planet.

VICTORY! FEDERAL COURT RESCINDS USDA APPROVAL OF GENETICALLY ENGINEERED SUGAR BEETS
ORDER BANS PLANTING OR SALE OF CONTROVERSIAL CROP. COURT DENIES MONSANTO REQUEST TO ALLOW CONTINUED PLANTING
Today Judge Jeffrey White, federal district judge for the Northern District of California, issued a ruling granting the request of plaintiffs Center for Food Safety, Organic Seed Alliance, High Mowing Organic Seeds, and the Sierra Club to rescind the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) approval of genetically engineered “Roundup Ready” sugar beets (Center for Food Safety v. Vilsack, No. C08-00484 JSW [N.D. Cal. 2010]). In September 2009, the Court had found that the USDA had violated the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) by approving the Monsanto-engineered biotech crop without first preparing an Environmental Impact Statement. The crop was engineered to resist the effects of Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, which it sells to farmers together with the patented seed. Similar Roundup Ready crops have led to increased use of herbicides, proliferation of herbicide resistant weeds, and contamination of conventional and organic crops.
In today’s ruling the Court officially “vacated” the USDA “deregulation” of Monsanto’s biotech sugar beets and prohibited any future planting and sale pending the agency’s compliance with NEPA and all other relevant laws. USDA has estimated that an EIS may be ready by 2012.
Andrew Kimbrell, Executive Director of plaintiff and co-counsel the Center for Food Safety, stated, “This is a major victory for farmers, consumers and the rule of law. USDA has once again acted illegally and had its approval of a biotech crop rescinded. Hopefully the agency will learn that their mandate is to protect farmers, consumers and the environment and not the bottom line of corporations such as Monsanto.”
Paul Achitoff of Earthjustice, lead counsel for the plaintiffs, commented: “Time and again, USDA has ignored the law and abdicated its duty to protect the environment and American agriculture from genetically engineered crops designed to sell toxic chemicals. Time and again, citizens speaking truth to power have taken USDA to court and won.”
In his order, Judge White noted that USDA’s “errors are not minor or insignificant, and his “concern that Defendants are not taking this process seriously.” He also pointed out that “despite the fact that the statutes at issue are designed to protect the environment,” USDA and the sugar beet industry focused on the economic consequences to themselves, yet “failed to demonstrate that serious economic harm would be incurred pending a full economic review….”
The Court held in part:
…the Court GRANTS Plaintiffs’ request to vacate APHIS’s decision to deregulate genetically engineered sugar beets and remands this matter to APHIS. Based on this vacatur, genetically engineered sugar beets are once again regulated articles pursuant to the Plant Protection Act. This vacatur applies to all future plantings…
This is the second time a Court has rescinded USDA’s approval of a biotech crop. The first such crop, Roundup Ready alfalfa, is also illegal to plant, based on the vacating of its deregulation in 2007 pending preparation of an EIS. Although Monsanto took that case all the way to the Supreme Court and the High Court set aside part of the relief granted, the full prohibition on its planting – based on the same remedy granted here, the vacatur – remains in place. In the past several years federal courts have also held illegal USDA’s approval of biotech crop field trials, including the testing of biotech grasses in Oregon and the testing of engineered, pharmaceutical-producing crops in Hawai’i.
