They stood up to Monsanto and Dow – Back them up!

Supporter,Maui has been ground zero for the agro-chemical industry’s outdoor experimentation of plants that are genetically engineered to withstand heavy spraying of toxic chemicals.That is until this week when Maui voters decided to suspend these experiments until the companies behind them start to disclose more information about the chemicals they’re using.


This is not just a victory for the people and the environment of Maui. This is a victory for our democracy as our grassroots, community-based food movement was able to prevail against impossible odds.

Opponents of the moratorium, Dow Chemical and Monsanto, outspent grassroots supporters 87 to 1. While they succeeding in making this the most expensive campaign in Hawaii’s history, they failed to hear the legitimate concerns of Maui residents whose homes, schools and businesses are downwind of these experiments.

Hawaii Center for Food Safety stood shoulder to shoulder with the grassroots movement of Maui residents behind this initiative. But, our work isn’t done yet.

While we hoped that this industry would respect the will of the citizens who fought door-to-door to win this campaign, Monsanto has already declared that they plan to “file a lawsuit challenging the legality of this harmful ban.”

Center for Food Safety isn’t going to back down from this fight, but we need your help to ensure we have the resources we need to go toe-to-toe with these deep pockets.

PITCH IN NOW >>

Together, we’ll send an even stronger message to the agro-chemical industry that our movement is a force that even their money can’t reckon with.

Thanks,

Ashley Lukens, PhD
Program Director, Hawaii Center for Food Safety

OCA: Tell Congress: Don’t Fast-Track this Disastrous Trade Agreement

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a global trade agreement being secretly negotiated by 600 multinational corporations and industry trade groups, will affect nearly every aspect of Americans’ lives. If passed, it will undermine state, local and federal laws, including those governing food safety, environmental protection, internet freedom, worker rights, democratic sovereignty, healthcare and drug prices, and banking and finance regulation.

It’s bad enough that Congress and the public have been shut out of these negotiations, while corporations are running the show. But even worse, the Obama Administration wants to ram the TPP through Congress using a Nixon-era process called Fast Track.

Please ask your representatives and senators to vote against giving President Obama any type of Fast Track Trade Authority and insist that Congress fulfills its constitutional mandate to write the laws and set trade policy.

Take a stand for Organic Farmers around the World!

stand_with_Steve_Marsh_2014

 

Right now an important case is being heard halfway around the world in Western Australia about organic farmer Steve Marsh, whose organic field was contaminated by his neighbor’s genetically engineered canola. As a result, Steve lost his organic certification and as much as 70% of his Steve’s farm has been contaminated with Monsanto’s patented genes.

With clever fine print in their seed contracts, Monsanto is not legally liable for their patented genes contaminating an organic farmer’s field due to their “no liability” agreement farmers are forced to sign when they plant Monsanto’s GMO seeds.

As a result, Steve’s family’s livelihood has been put at risk. He could literally lose everything.

Please stand with organic farmer Steve Marsh to protect the rights of organic farmers everywhere! Every voice counts!

Running the Country and Educating about GMOs

Father and 15-year old son run 3,000 miles across the USA in support of a GMO free food supply.

David Wilcox and his father, Brett, launched their run on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 11AM. From Huntington Beach Pier in California to New Jersey, they are the first father & teen son team to make the cross country run. But the mission wasn’t to just run cross country. They went running and educating about GMOs and the benefits of going GMO-free.

How flipping awesome is that?

On their blog they report:

January 18, 2014 – July 19, 2014
150 Running Days
183 Total Days or 6 months and 2 days

David ran in six pairs of shoes and his father, Brett in four pairs of shoes.

Over the six months they were on the road, they were on their feet for many more miles than the 2965 officially recorded.

You can find some pretty cool photos and all the stats on their blog.

What an amazing way to stand up, speak out and tell the people of the USA about making our country GMO FREE!

Thank you!!! Thank you!!!! Thank you David and Brett Wilcox what you accomplished is remarkable!

The run is over but you can still donate to their efforts and support this cause and the ones fighting for it.

Tell Coke to Kiss Monsanto Goodbye!

Boycott_Coke_FDN

What do Monsanto and Coke have in common? They’ve both spent millions of dollars to keep you in the dark about the foods you buy.

In the past 2 years, executives at Coca-Cola have stood with Monsanto against the American public by donating more than $3.2 million to defeat GMO labeling ballot initiatives Prop 37 in California and I-522 in Washington State.

Last year alone, Coke secretly funneled more than $1.5 million dollars through the a secret slush fund in order to kill the I-522 initiative in Washington that would have required GMO labeling.

It’s time for consumers to put their money where their mouth is and join the Coke Boycott.

While you may not drink Coke or any of their popular sugary soda drinks, the company owns many brands that you might buy, including Honest Tea, Honest Kids, Zico Coconut Water, Odwalla, Powerade, Peace Tea, Vitamin Water and Simply Orange.

Tell Coke to dump Monsanto and stop spending millions of dollars to kill GMO labeling campaigns in America!   Tell Coke to Kiss Monsanto Goodbye!

JOIN THE COKE BOYCOTT!
