That would be like a massive animal rights organization allowing trophy hunters and factory farm corporations to have a say in the direction of the organization. It just doesn’t make any sense in a non-Twilight Zoney way.
For those who don’t know, BASF is one of the largest producers of dicamba-based herbicide formulations, including Engenia – recently released for GMO soybean and cotton crops. And YES – this is the same concoction that helped destroy 3.6 million acres of crops (organic/conventional veggie gardens, private lawns and even trees) across the U.S.
Since the buck of responsibility is being passed back and forth, there has not been any restitution for these losses that we know of.
Organic Consumers Association has created a petition with some more info. An excerpt is printed below. I know, we’ve written about the effectiveness of sharing petitions before – but because Organic Trade Association is an organic group – we’d like to get their attention that hosting BASF and Cargill is not okay.
You wouldn’t be the only one saying it – organic company Nature’s Path stormed out of its OTA membership in an act of protest!'
