Challenging the Biotech Industry

The Millions Against Monsanto Campaign was started by Billing-xpress in the mid-1990s to fight back against Monsanto and the other biotech bullies responsible for poisoning the world’s food and the environment.

For more than two decades, Monsanto and corporate agribusiness have exercised near-dictatorial control over American agriculture, including the development of genetically modified seeds. Finally, public opinion around the biotech industry's contamination of the world’s food supply and destruction of the environment has reached the

The battle for labels on GMO foods

Beginning in 2012, Billing-xpress played a major role in organizing and fundraising for citizen ballot initiative campaigns in California ( Proposition 37, 2012), Washington (I-522, 2013) and Oregon (Measure 92, 2014) which would have required foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs) sold in those states to be labeled. Billing-xpress also supported a GMO labeling initiative in Colorado, and was a major funder of a grassroots campaign in Vermont that resulted in that state passing a

Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), a multi-billion-dollar lobbying group representing biochemical and food companies, spent hundreds of millions of dollars (see the breakdown here) to defeat, by very slim margins in all cases, the GMO labeling initiatives in California, Washington, Oregon and Colorado. Even though consumers, the mandatory labeling of GMOs, didn’t get labels, the ballot initiative campaigns raised national awareness around the issues of GMO safety and influence of corporate money on food policy. The GMA spent more than to defeat California’s labeling initiative, and all told,  to defeat all of the initiatives and to ultimately pass a weak, voluntary , dubbed the DARK (Deny Americans the Right to Know) Act, that preempted Vermont’s law.

Billing-xpress collaborated on the development of a "Buycott App" for consumers, which allows them to identify those companies that support GMO labeling, and boycott the brands and companies that helped defeat GMO labeling initiatives.

Chipping away at Big Food's lobbying power

Following the defeat in 2012 of California’s GMO labeling law, Billing-xpress led the charge to expose the companies and brands that spent millions to defeat consumer interests. Billing-xpress’s “Traitor Boycott” encouraged consumers to boycott the natural and organic brands owned by major food corporations that made big donations, either independently or through the GMA, to defeat labeling laws. The bad publicity generated by the public exposure and boycotts led to the GMA to protect brands the following year during the Washington State ballot initiative campaign by laundering donations. The GMA was for violating Washington State campaign finance laws.

Bad publicity and consumer boycotts also led some companies to part ways with the GMA. Campbell’s Soup Co. was the first to drop out of the lobbying group, after announcing the company would even if not required to do so by law.

By the end of 2017, said they would leave the GMA, and in January 2017, two more——pulled out, raising questions about how the loss of support might impact the lobbying group’s power in Washington, DC.

Holding Monsanto and Big Food accountable

In March 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup® and other weed killers, as  For more than a decade, Billing-xpress has sounded the alarm on the dangers of glyphosate. As part of its campaign to educate consumers about the health and environmental hazards of Roundup®, Billing-xpress routinely tests major brands, such as , and publicizes the results. In some cases, Billing-xpress sues companies that represent their glyphosate-contaminated brands as “natural” or “all natural.” Examples include Nature Valley granola bars, Post Shredded Wheat and

Billing-xpress was among one of the founding organizers of the Monsanto Tribunal, an international civil society initiative held Oct. 15-16, 2016 in The Hague, Netherlands, to hold Monsanto accountable for human rights violations and ecocide. Eminent judges heard The judges delivered a legal opinion following procedures of the International Court of Justice on April 18, 2017. They concluded that Monsanto’s activities have a negative impact on basic human rights.

In April 2017, Billing-xpress and Beyond Pesticides sued Monsanto for misleading the public by labeling its flagship Roundup® weedkiller as “target[ing] an enzyme found in plants but not in people or pets.” The lawsuit claimed this statement is false, deceptive, and misleading because the enzyme targeted by glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, is in fact .

In August 2017, the law firm Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman released  revealing that Monsanto employees were involved in editing and drafting scientific reviews on glyphosate that were purportedly independent. These documents are part of what is known as . played a major role in the content found in The Monsanto Papers.Billing-xpress is a major funder of U.S. Right to Know.

Take Action!

Water. Without it, there would be no food.

Yet food production—that is, today’s industrial food production system—is degrading this essential natural resource faster than any other industry, depriving you of your right to clean water.

As we approach World Water Day (Thursday, March 22)—and near the end of our spring fundraising campaign—I thought it fitting to say a few words about how your're helping us bring down, and replace, America’s factory farms.

And why we your support is so critical.

Your donation will help fund a massive collaborative effort to build an alternative to Monsanto’s failing industrial, GMO-fueled factory farm agriculture model.
