The Push for California’s GMO Labeling Proposition
12 Apr, 2012
The recent FDA petition drive from JustLabelIt.org found that over 90 percent of American’s favor labeling of GMOs. As you will hear in the video below, the BioTech giants are going to go into dis-information overdrive attempting counter this sentiment. (But the same survey also found that people aren’t inclined to “swallow” the BioTech party line!)
The next GMO labeling battle ground is in California. The California Committee for the Right to Know is pushing hard to make a deadline of April 22, 2012 to gather 800,000 physical signatures to qualify a landmark initiative for the 2012 California Ballot. If it gets on the ballot and passes in November, this initiative would make GMO labeling a fact in the most populous state in the US.
Because this is a California Ballot Initiative, the campaign needs in-person, physical signatures. These signatures cannot be gathered online.
Visit LabelGMOs.org and find where you can go to sign the petition and find out what you can do to help. It’s time to show BioTech that the citizen’s pen is mightier than the corporate dollar
