(NaturalNews) The following is an official announcement from the Hawaii GMO Justice Coalition. We share it here on NaturalNews as a call for your support. All NaturalNews readers in Hawaii are called upon to join in this protest
and show the world that Hawaiians will not tolerate their sacred islands being used as genetic engineering experiments
by evil corporations!
Here is the letter in full:
Letter to NaturalNews readers from the Hawaii GMO Justice Coalition
Aloha Mike and the Natural News Team members,
We formed the Hawaii GMO Justice Coalition to bring together the many groups on the islands and the mainland seeking justice against the GMO companies on Hawaii. For the past 25 years Hawaii has been the field trial lab of 95% of GMO crops, totaling over 5,000 field trials. After GMO seeds come out of the lab, the first place they are tested is Hawaii. About 15,000 acres of land is growing GMO crops on the Islands today that no one will ever eat.
Hawaii is the only place to have stopped the deregulation of a GMO crop. A moratorium on the planting of GMO Taro took place, because Hawaii farmers and citizens would not stand for it.
On February 21, 2012
(at 12:30 pm) we are organizing a rally at the state capital to push for the passage of two laws, one is labeling of GMO Foods, the other is disclosure of field trial sites to allow people and farmers to decide if they want to live near a field trial site.
Our main partner, who has led the movement against Monsanto over the years, is the Organic Consumers Association (www.OrganicConsumers.org
) and their Millions Against Monsanto Campaign.
We would appreciate your support on driving awareness to this essential issue:http://honoluluweekly.com/cover/2012/01/boss...www.facebook.com/pages/Hawaii-GMO-Justice-Co...
Take a stand against GMO crimes against humanity!
NaturalNews strongly urges all citizens of Hawaii to join in this massive protest. Take a stand against GMO injustice. Say "NO" to corporate-corrupted agricultural imperialism. Take back your islands against the criminal elite!
And someone, please shoot some video of the rally, and upload to TV.naturalnews.com so we can share it with others. We are working very, very hard to spread the word on all these urgent GMO
rallies and events. Victory is at hand on this issue. We must press forward
now more than ever, and drive GMOs out of Hawaii and North America!
