USDA backs down. Protests work!

"More than 3,700 consumers and activists wrote to the USDA’s National Organic Program to protest the recent ruling that would have made Organic certification too expensive millions of small-scale farmers and their cooperatives. It worked: The USDA announced on May 2 that certification for grower groups will continue as it has since 2002 until they come up with a new rule at their fall meeting."

I wrote about the issue earlier on the blog. Protests work. Keep the pressure up! Lets internationalize it. Next time, they should get protests and boycotts from all around the world.
