Elizabeth Kucinich: Members of Congress, Farmers and Businesses Call on Obama to Fulfill Campaign Promise on GMO Labeling
The Huffington Post - USA - about 3 years
A morning press conference offered a beacon of hope for farmers and activists on Capitol Hill today as members of Congress and 200 organizations demanded Obama fulfill his 2007 campaign promises to label GMOs. The appeal had added urgency after the USDA recently published its initial recommendation to deregulate Dow Chemical's 2,4-D resistant corn and soybeans. Perhaps the most pernicious GMO crops yet, 2,4-D crops threaten to severely increase the spraying of 2,4-D, a component in the Vietnam era defoliant, "Agent Orange." "Right-to-Know Act" sponsor, Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR), food and nutrition champion Rep. Rosa Delauro (D-CT), organic farmer Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-ME), and Rep. Ann Kuster (D-NH) gave remarks together with Center for Food Safety, Environmental Working Group and organic food industry leader, Gary Hirschberg of Stonyfield Farms. "We need the federal government to step up. People across the U.S deserve labeling," said Rep. Kuster. "It's all about ...

Elizabeth Kucinich: TAFTA (Part 2): Citizens of the Food Movement, Be Prepared!
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP): A race to the top, or the bottom? In the U.S., some agencies may adopt a foreign country's regulatory standards and systems as being "equivalent" to those of the United States. Similarly, the U.S. can enter into "mutual recognition agreements" that allow nations to rely on the results of each other's testing, inspection, or certification regimes. Such actions reflect what is known as "harmonization" of standards. In other words, a country views another country's standards to be "substantially equivalent" to its domestic standards (even if the trading country's standards are lower). Granting "equivalency" is often very subjective, imprecise, and based on incomplete or outdated information. For example, the quixotic decision of the U.S. to maintain Australia's equivalency status after it adopted a privatized meat inspection system has resulted in repeated incidents of Australian meat imports being contaminated wi ...

Elizabeth Kucinich: TAFTA: Code Word 'Harmonization,' a Race to the Bottom or the Top?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) -- Part 1: Preventing health and food safety standards from slipping While everyone should celebrate the idea of economic and cultural cooperation between the European Union and the United States, some are voicing legitimate concerns that free trade negotiations for a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), a.k.a. TAFTA, may result in lowering food safety and public health standards in favor of advancing special trade interests. It is imperative that any TTIP proposal should uphold the right to maintain existing food and public health policies, and the right to improve upon such policies in order to ensure that the highest standards of public safety are met. Recent announcements by U.S. and the E.U. officials negotiating the TTIP, along with industry representatives, speak of the need to "harmonize" food safety, environmental and consumer protection standards. However, based on current trade ag ...

Marianne Schnall: Marianne Williamson on Consciousness, Women and Politics
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
Some of us may be feeling a collective national hangover after a divisive and emotionally exhausting election season. In the aftermath, it seems a fertile time for reflection and conversation, and hopefully, change. On Election Day eve, I was fortunate to have an illuminating conversation with spiritual activist and best-selling author Marianne Williamson, who this weekend will convene Sister Giant, a two-day conference taking place on November 10th and 11th in Los Angeles (and live streamed online) to explore "birthing a new American politics." In the following in-depth interview, Marianne and I talk about the need to create a new political paradigm, "one where conscience takes precedence over profit and humanitarian values trump economic ones," as well as her insightful perspective on numerous other topics. Marianne Schnall: What inspired you to launch Sister Giant? How would you describe the event and what do you hope to accomplish? Marianne Williamson: I write ...
