California Prop 37 seems to be on fire these days. There is so much going on! Probably the most exciting news is that we just got an endorsement from California State Senator Mark Leno (D). I read a letter he wrote to his colleagues and candidates, which in my humble opinion expresses the very sentiment I feel.
- Jeffrey M. Smith, author (Seeds of Destruction and Genetic Rolette) and the leading spokesperson regarding the need to label GMO foods; Tom Newmark of Greenpeace; Pamm Larry of LabelGMOs.org: August 25, 2-5 p.m., Holiday Inn and Suites, 2932 E. Nutwood, Fullerton.
- Pamm Larry at Mothers’ Market in Costa Mesa –August 21 at 6:30 to 8:00 pm: Talk and Planning Meeting –August 21 at 11 am to 2:00 pm: As stated on Mothers’ website, “Pam Larry will be available to answer your questions about GMO’s. Visit her table in the Mother’s store.“
- Pamm Larry at Mothers’ Market in Brea –August 23 at 6:30 to 8:00 pm: Talk and Planning Meeting –August 23 at 11 am to 2:00 pm: As stated on Mothers’ website, “Pam Larry will be available to answer your questions about GMO’s. Visit her table in the Mother’s store.“
Meanwhile back in Monsanto Land I just read that they have thrown in another $4.2 million dollars to spread their lies to kill Prop 37. Gee, I thought they would be too busy trying to explain to farmers why their Bt corn crops are being eaten by the root-worm when they are supposed to be immune from them. It says so on the label!
And it looks like their drought resistent corn isn’t all it’s cracked up to be either. I guess the members of the board think its better to spend all their time and money making sure the California public are kept in the dark about what they are feeding their family.
According to Yes on 37 Right to Know website:
New campaign finance reports reveal that Monsanto Co. just contributed $4.2 million to defeat Proposition 37, which would require labeling of genetically engineered food. That is the largest contribution in the race. Total contributions to defeat Proposition 37 amount to $25 million, and nearly $23 million during the last week.
I believe Senator Leno sums it up best, “Yes on 37 is based on a pretty simple notion: we have the right to know what’s in the food we and our families eat.” Why do Monsanto and its biotech buddies feel so threatened by this? Now that’s the real question.
