What You Need to Know About the DARK Act (Plus How to Stop it In Its Tracks)

By On July 24, 2015

The DARK Act passed the House on July 23, 2015 in what was yet another major step toward passing into law a measure that could effectively ban GMO labeling at the statewide level.

Despite nationwide polls by major media outlets consistently showing that over 90% of Americans want GMO labeling, a right afforded in over 60 countries around the world, the Right to Know what’s in our food is at now stake more than ever before.

For weeks news updates surrounding the mysterious DARK Act, introduced as HR1599 by Mike Pompeo of Kansas (who has taken contributions from both Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers’ Association), was hard to come by as the House vote drew near.

Word began to spread on Facebook that it was even being censored on newsfeeds everywhere preventing it from being read and people from knowing and calling their reps.

Now that the bill has passed, all of a sudden it is actually trending on Facebook.

While the bill passing the House is a setback, Anthony Gucciardi from the website Natural Society came out recently with the video below on how the news of its passing can help increase awareness and lead to positive momentum toward stopping it.

You can also help stop the DARK Act by calling your Senator and telling them to oppose any legislation that would ban mandatory GMO labeling, a right afforded in 60+ countries around the world. A vote is expected soon in the Senate; you can find your Senator by clicking on the links below:
