Who knew that Alexis Badden Mayer of the Organic Consumers Association would be arrested outside the White House when she attempted to deliver a DVD Petition with over 200,000 names asking Michelle Obama to ask her husband to fulfill a campaign promise to label GMO food products?
There is no more basic American right, than to petition the government, to speak up and have your voice heard as a citizen by your elected representatives -- but not if you don't have the money to buy access to officials who have become more responsive to the interest groups that finance their elections then the people who elected them. And so it was with the petition that called for the truthful labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs). People want to know what they are eating and want food labeling to indicate if the food has been genetically modified.
In this Instant Film, the story gets sidetracked when a couple of Jewish "missionaries" coincidentally roll up at the White House and ask to see the President, then perform the Jewish Tefillin ritual which consists of strapping a small box containing Torah verses to the head and arm of Adam Eidinger, one of demonstrators. While Adam is strapped he begins whispering about how GMO foods are not Kosher and how the insecticides, genetically engineered into corn, are killing the bees. All this does not go unnoticed by the uniformed Secret Service, who become increasingly impatient, with a demonstration, now blocking an entrance, that seems to be spiraling out of control. Instead of arresting those blocking the entrance, they arrest the person trying to deliver the petitions, Alexis Baden-Mayer from the Organic Consumers Association.

This film is CLOSED CAPTIONED press CC - and now translatable.

Mar 11, 2013 Statement by Alexis The police kept telling me that I would be held overnight, but I was released after four hours, due to the heroic efforts of my husband and mother who stayed at the police station with my 3-month-old baby and refused to leave until I was released. I was ordered to appear in court a few weeks later on the charge of unlawful entry. It's a misdemeanor charge, but, because the charge involved the White House, a felony judge had to hear the case. The judge I was assigned to was annoyed that she would have to interrupt her docket of serious crimes with something so unimportant. She wasn't sympathetic to my position that I was wrongly arrested and wanted to be acquitted.
