Organic Justice: The Call of the Land - update

From: Melissa M
Sent on: Wednesday, November 28, 2012 8:09 AM
The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., has announced that on 
January 10, 2013 it will hear the appeal in a landmark legal case of critical  importance 
to all who eat organic food: Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association (OSGATA) et al 
v. Monsanto.

This landmark case is also, notably, of direct relevance to Evrett Lunquist, who was the 
subject of my November 14 report ­ America¹s Organic Inspectors Chilled by Libel Case. 
In addition to that precedent-seting libel case, Lunquist and wife Ruth Chantry of the 
Common Good Farm in Raymond, Nebraska are among the coalition of organic farms 
and organizations which have banded together to press the class-action lawsuit against 

Š...While the GMO invasion matter is being contested in court, this November the final 
report of the USDA¹s Advisory Committee on Biotechnology & 21st Century Agriculture 
threw another hatchet at the roots of organic farming and food. 

The committee formally recommended that organic farmers pay money to self-insure 
themselves against unwanted GMO contamination.
