Organic Showdown in Texas! OCA Political Director Arrested
By Organic Consumers Assn. May 1, 2014
“When a government agency, the National Organic Program, that pretends to represent the organic community instead represents USDA bureaucrats and corporate profiteers, it’s time for organic consumers and our allies to rise up and take back control over organic standards and practices.” – Ronnie Cummins, national director, Organic Consumers Association
On Tuesday (April 29) this week, OCA political director Alexis Baden-Mayer was hauled off in handcuffs when she refused to end the Organic Consumers Association’s protest of illegally made changes to the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) policy for approving and removing non-organic materials from organics.
