I'm ActionAid USA, and I started a petition to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate , which says:
Congress is considering new laws that would stop food being used for fuel in the U.S.
Many families in poor countries are unable to access land to grow food to feed their families or to sell at local markets to make a living. Meanwhile, dramatic spikes in corn prices, largely caused by U.S. corn ethanol mandates, mean that prices for many basic foods have also increased significantly.
Please ask your lawmakers to put an end to the biofuel mandates that are driving up hunger around the world!
This petition was created on MoveOn's online petition site, where anyone can start their own online petitions. ActionAid USA didn't pay us to send this email—we never rent or sell the MoveOn.org list.
