THE QUESTION IS:
DO YOU WANT TO GIVE CORPORATE FACTORY FARMS AND FOREIGN CORPORATIONS YOUR MISSOURI RIGHTS
WELL DO YOU??
Subject: Please Vote “No” on Amendment 1 on Tuesday – and Forward This Email to Your Contacts
Of the major Missouri daily newspapers that have taken a position on Amendment One, 16 of 17 urge citizens to vote “No” on Amendment 1.
Amendment 1 would give corporate factory farms and even foreign corporations constitutional rights to do what they want with our farmland.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch says that Amendment 1 would give “massive out-of-state corporations extra protection in the state constitution.” The Joplin Globe calls Amendment 1 “a measure designed to protect corporate agriculture rather than the traditional family farm.” And the Kansas City Star calls Amendment 1 an "unnecessary and potentially harmful proposal." The Sullivan Journal says Amendment 1 is “a farce.”
Please join me in supporting the Missouri Farmers Union, the Humane Society of Missouri, and the League of Women Voters of Missouri in saying “no” to Amendment 1 on Tuesday.

We shouldn’t give foreign corporations extra rights at the expense of our own family farmers, animals, water quality, and the environment. Together, we can keep the power where it belongs - in our hands.
