Organic Farmers Win GMO Fight in Jackson County, Oregon

January 11th, 2016

Via EcoWatch:

Organic farmers are racking up new victories in the fight against “franken-food,” as a growing number of counties line up to bar genetically engineered (GE) crop cultivation throughout the country.

A federal judge in Jackson County, Oregon, recently upheld a consent decree that designates the region a “GE-free zone,” a ruling which officially protects the decree from appeal, granting new protections to farmers, consumers and the environment.

That means organic and traditional farms in Jackson County will be protected from chemicals produced by Monsanto, Syngenta, DuPont and other biotech giants. The ruling follows the passage of other similar ordinances in at least eight U.S. counties, including in Hawaii, California and Washington, along with another Oregon county.

Here is a very important local legislative ordinance, first in the country, to pass local rights home rule for Mendocino County. It also gives the first ever, “Rights of Nature” to exist in legal standing in courts which allows for protection of the Environment and not just a cost item on a balance sheet.  Wahoo!
