FW: The Immaculate Graft Of The Monsanto Reckless Release Act

> Date: Wed, 3 Apr 2013 02:22:16 -0800
> From: theteam@peaceteam.net
> Subject: The Immaculate Graft Of The Monsanto Reckless Release Act
> To: angusfarms@hotmail.com
> Dear Friends and Activists:
> Washington, DC is a literal crime scene this week, a classic
> whodunit. Not even a Jon Tester, a member himself of the United
> States Senate, can get anyone to tell him who secretly slipped
> language into the emergency spending bill that purports to forbid
> both the Department of Agriculture and the Courts from restricting
> unsafe GMOs. This provision would purport to force release into the
> wild of untested and potentially dangerous organisms, and stands to
> benefit only the corporate special interests of Monsanto in
> particular.
> There is a word for this. And the word is graft, making law for the
> favor of a particular special interest contributor. If this is such a
> great provision, why is it that nobody will even admit who put it in
> there?
> It's not only a crime, it is irresponsible, as so many GMOs have
> proven to have been a disaster already, just accelerating weed and
> pest resistance. But Monsanto seeks to do the damage of reckless
> release into the environment first, and test later. We are demanding
> a hearing of the Senate Appropriations Committee to determine who is
> responsible for putting this in there, and to demand their immediate
> resignation, regardless of party affiliation, so that this kind of
> anonymous graft can never happen again.
> Monsanto Reckless Release Action Page:
> http://www.peaceteam.net/action/pnum1111.php
> The action page above will send your message to all your members of
> Congress and directly to the Senate Appropriations Committee at the
> same time.
> And please plan ahead to attend the screenings of The Last War Crime,
> the movie that will end torture, in San Francisco on Saturday, May
> 25th, if you can. Now that we have a theater committment we are
> setting this up as donation optional. That's right, all you have to
> do is submit the form to get your ticket reservations. Of course if
> you can make a contribution of any amount, that is what makes it
> possible for us to secure a first class venue like this, and to make
> free tickets available to anyone who cannot make a donation right
> now.
> SF Last War Crime Movie Tickets:
> http://www.peaceteam.net/tickets_SF.php
> For everyone else, please get your ticket requests in and make some
> kind of donation so we can make the same kind of committment in your
> town as soon as possible.
> National Last War Crime Movie Tickets:

> We have encountered tremendous political censorship hurdles in
> getting the word out about this movie, a dramatic film (not a
> documentary) dealing frankly as it does with torture, accountability
> for war crimes and the knowing lies that took us to war in Iraq.
> First YouTube banned our relatively mild waterboarding scene.
> Thousands of you spoke out against that last year and we forced them
> to reverse their position.
> We had to file a lawsuit against the NYPD to obtain the use of some
> extraordinary photos they had from 9/11, which most people have never
> seen before. We won that lawsuit and those pictures are now in the
> movie.
> Then MTV (Viacom) and radio station WMAL in Washington, DC (Cumulus
> Media, the second largest radio station chain in the country)
> rejected ads for the movie, both while confessing the reason was
> political. We have already filed a federal lawsuit against Cumulus
> for what we are calling "political speech discrimination" and
> anticipate a hearing in front of a federal judge in due course.
> Won't you help us fight back against all this suppression of the
> truth? All we are asking you to do is be in a seat when The Last War
> Crime movie is playing near you. And that only way that can happen is
> if you speak out now by submitting the ticket request form, which in
> San Francisco on May 25th we have already made donation optional.
> So here are those ticket links again for The Last War Crime, the
> movie that will end torture.
