I’ve been tossing and turning over prob 37 since before the election. It didn’t come as a surprise that it hadn’t passed but really bothered me all the same. I kept thinking and thinking about what we could do and I think I’ve got an idea but need aggressive help in this campaign.
If each one of us individually used our twitter account and told these companies why we will not purchase their products, as well as sending these companies emails, and mailing a letter of promise to them, we might stand a change to open their eyes to not using GMOs in their products.

On Tuesday, California voted on proposition 37, whether or not to label GMOs. Although not all the votes have been counted yet, and we won’t know the official result until December 7th-14th, the votes counted so far, show Prop 37 defeated 53% to 47%.

The main contributor to the No On 37 campaign was the omni-powerful Monsanto who pumped over $8 million into the $46 million coffers to defeat Prop 37. You can find out what kind of corporation is leading the fight to deny your right to know by watching the movie “The World According to Monsanto.”

The vote in California to label GMOs — Prop 37 (Tuesday, 6th November), is going to make history. And over $1 million a day is being spent to try to make sure it doesn’t pass. What happens in California, affects all Americans. If the vote passes, it will send ripples all across America. The stakes are extremely high.
Where’s all this money coming from to stop you knowing your food is GMO? These people…
It doesn’t exactly give you the warm fuzzies does it? All that money is being spent on downright lies, lies and more lies. I just heard that the Justice Dept. is going to be investigating. Continue reading
The biotech industry has pooled together $35 million to “persuade” voters to vote “No” on Prop 37 in California. “Persuade” is the nice way of putting it. Some call them deceptions, some call them outright lies.
What I find very sad is that the system allows vested interests to advertize and thus gain votes by spending money — buying votes. So it ends up not about what is best, but who has the most money.
Two of the things that the No people are saying is that food will cost more and farmers will be hurt if labeling happens. I would call these downright lies.

How much deception can $35,000,000 buy? The latest poll on Proposition 37 (which affects ALL Americans, and even the whole world) shows that it’s not about what’s right, or a fair debate, but about how many votes can be bought. Before money was spent, 66% of Californians wanted labeling. Now look. And with the “No” budget 10 times the “Yes” budget, it’s going to take people power for justice to prevail.

Diana Reeves was furious when her state legislators caved into threats by Monsanto to sue the state of Connecticut if it passed a GMO labeling law. Lawmakers effectively told Connecticut’s voters, who had clearly expressed overwhelming support for GMO labeling, “oh well.”
Unlike her gutless state legislators who rolled over, Reeves is determined to keep the fight for transparency in GMO ingredients alive — and she’s taking her fight national. She’s started a group called GMO Free USA which plans to pressure food manufacturers into revealing which of their products contain GMOs. The ultimate goal is to organize national boycotts of those companies that refuse to switch to non-GMO ingredients. Continue reading
Hiya! I’m putting some final touches to the new campaign. A little but potentially powerful tweak is to the Create Awareness page. I’d love to get everyone doing the top two things. They’re very easy and simple to do, so hopefully, the new page will have a much greater impact.
The two things are 1. Sharing the home page on social media (easy, right?) 2. Watching and sharing the movie Genetic Roulette — not too hard either :-)
These two things are probably the most effective right now.
The California Ballot coming up in November is really giving me a focus to do everything I can to raise awareness in the time we have left. Biotech companies and Big Agri-biz are pouring millions of dollars into this, but despite that, polls are showing 66% in favor of YES on Prop 37 — this vote will affect all Americans.
All the best, Mike
