Why Organic Consumers Must Speak Out Against War

A greater market share for local, organic & fair trade products will amount to very little in a world of constant war, vanishing oil supplies and climate chaos. That's why the Organic Consumers Association is launching "Planting Peace", a campaign to stimulate greater cooperation and synergy between the anti-war, climate crisis, and organic movements. As supporters of peace, justice and sustainability, we have no choice but to force Washington to reallocate massive portions of federal war funding towards peace, sustainability, alternative energy, and reducing dangerous greenhouse gases. As Bush comes to Congress asking for more money for war, let's tell our elected officials: We buy local, organic & fair trade... But we're not buying this war!
