Nil Jang protiv Starbaksa, Monsanta, GMO... - brani Vermont

Poznati roker pozvao fanove da bojkotuju lanac restorana Starbaks, zbog njihove odluke da se pridruže kompaniji Monsanto u tužbi protiv američke države Vermont.

Početkom godine je u Vermontu donet zakon po kome do jula 2016. godine sve one namirnice koje sadrže GMO, moraju imati istaknuto na ambalaži obaveštenje o tome. Monsanto je jedna od mnogih kompanija koje se bore protiv tog zakona, a nedavno im se pridružio i Starbaks.

Tim povodom, Nil Jang je izjavio: "Monsanto možda i nije briga šta mi mislimo, ali Starbaks je kompanija sa izraženim društveno-odgovornim aktivnostima. Starbaks je u prošlosti imao kampanje u kojima je podržavao prava radnika i LGBT populacije, i videti ih na istoj strani sa negativcem kakav je Monsanto, razočaravajuće je. Vermont je mala, ruralna država sa 600 hiljada ljudi i iako spor sa Monsantom deluje kao borba Davida i Golijata, mislim da ako nas ima mnogo i uspemo da privučemo pažnju, postoji šansa da se Starbaks povuče iz ovog sramnog procesa. Dok se to ne desi, pozivam sve moje fanove da bojkotuju Starbaks proizvode."

Nil Jang je poznat po borbi za očuvanje životne sredine, a na njegovom aktuelnom albumu "Storytone" postoji pesma "Who’s Gonna Stand Up And Save the Earth?" koja se bavi upravo pomenutom tematikom.

GOODBYE STARBUCKS!!!

I used to line up and get my latte everyday, but yesterday was my last one.

Starbucks has teamed up with Monsanto to sue Vermont, and stop accurate food labeling.

Tell Starbucks to withdraw support for the lawsuit -- we have a right to know what we put in our mouths.

Starbucks doesn’t think you have the right to know what’s in your coffee. So it’s teamed up with Monsanto to sue the small U.S. state of Vermont to stop you from finding out.

Hiding behind the shadowy "Grocery Manufacturers Association," Starbucks is supporting a lawsuit that’s aiming to block a landmark law that requires genetically-modified ingredients be labeled. Amazingly, it claims that the law is an assault on corporations’ right to free speech.

Monsanto might not care what we think -but as a public-facing company, Starbucks does. If we can generate enough attention, we can push Starbucks to withdraw its support for the lawsuit, and then pressure other companies to do the same.

Vermont is a small, entirely rural state with just 600,000 people. It’s a classic David and Goliath fight between Vermont and Monsanto. Considering that Starbucks has been progressive on LGBT and labor issues in the past, it’s disappointing that it is working with the biggest villain of them all, Monsanto. Monsanto

There’s much more at stake here than just whether GMO foods will be labeled in a single U.S. state.
Vermont is the very first state in the U.S. to require labeling. Dozens of other states have said that they will follow this path -- in order to encourage this, we need to ensure that Vermont’s law stands strong.
That’s why Monsanto and its new allies are fighting so hard to kill GMO labeling in Vermont.

But whatever you think of GMOs, corporations should not be using massive lawsuits to overturn legitimate, democratic decisions with strong public backing.

SumOfUs is already fighting back -- they helped Vermont raise almost a quarter of a million dollars to defend themselves against Monsanto’s bullying! Help them by going to SumOfUs and registering to donate or sign a petition. The next strategic step is to pressure and call out members of the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the shadowy body leading the lawsuit. Your backing can help.

Add your voice now. Tell Starbucks to stop supporting the lawsuit against Vermont.

Thanks for caring!
