Monsanto a Top Risk to Public Health and the Environment

The Monsanto Corporation is a top "corporate climate criminal" whose drive for profit and control of the global food system threatens food safety, biodiversity, and food sovereignty. Monsanto is the world's leading producer and proponent of genetically modified agriculture. Through aggressive purchases of seed companies, Monsanto is rapidly taking control of the world's seed supply.

In addition, Monsanto produces dangerous chemicals that poison communities, add toxics to the food supply and create 'super weeds' that require increased application of even more toxic herbicides. Monsanto also promotes farming practices that severely exacerbate climate change by requiring excessive water and energy, and promoting massive deforestation to provide land for genetically modified agriculture.

Monsanto uses its political connections and market power to intimidate farmers and create a near monopoly on seeds creating a fragile, homogenous food supply as well as to protect themselves from liability for their actions. As more information becomes available, it is clear that Monsanto's practices threaten the future of our ability to grow food and live healthy lives.

We Need Your Help to Get the Green Party on the Ballot in NC

The campaign of Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein broke records for the Green Party from coast to coast -- but she was not on the ballot in North Carolina! You can't register Green, you can't vote Green. It's time to get riled up about that, and then get it fixed. The North Carolina Green Party has launched an all-out push to get the signatures required to get the Green Party on the ballot in NC.

The Green Party does not accept corporate or PAC donations, and can not hire the armies of professional signature gatherers other third parties have used to get on the ballot in NC. This is a grassroots effort and we need your help.
