Boycott, Gandhi-Style, Vote with your Wallet

The dark act has upset me very much. I can’t believe Obama signed that dang thing on his way out — nice legacy. Here is an idea for boycotting. Two things must happen for this to work. It really helps in small stores in small town. Put the things you won’t buy into one area of your cart. Tell the store owners these are the things you want them to put back because these companies do not support GMO labeling, which you believe is your right and part of being healthy. It does make an impact on them. Shoppers around you also hear it.
Then you have to write/call the companies telling them you are boycotting their products — ALL OF THEM. I won’t buy Cascadian Farms or Applegate Farms because they’ve been bought by larger companies that support GMO’s and want a seat at the organics table so they can infiltrate and screw with the organic parameters. And I tell everyone. Things don’t change without being a bit annoying… broken record.
