Goal — Get Walmart to commit to not sell GE sweet corn by April 1st.

6 Jan

Goal — Get Walmart to commit to not sell GE sweet corn by April 1st.

Phase 1 (January): Build support for the campaign by collecting petition signatures and recruiting communities to come together to fight GE sweet corn.

Phase 2 (February): Coordinated actions (e.g. call-in days, petition deliveries to store managers) to put direct pressure on Walmart.

Phase 3 (March): Targeted actions at Walmart stores and parking lots across the country to build visibility and get a commitment to reject Monsanto’s GE sweet corn.

Here’s how you can help:
There will be more to come on all of the tactics listed above, so stay tuned. In the meantime, please send your petition signatures — you can still download the toolkit here: http://bit.ly/GESweetCornPacket — back to me in our DC office (fax, scan, or mail – info below) by the end of the month.

And last but not least, please share our new online petition with everyone you know! Post to Facebook, Twitter, and any other networks you have: http://action.foodandwaterwatch.org/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=9105
