Maui Ban GMO & Fracking Dangers in BC! Nov 7/14
Maui bans GMO crops
Cdsapi’s Added Comment: A very significant win at the ballot box. Now these brave people in Maui are talking my language. They called a spade a spade. They called a Poison “a Poison”. And they won in the Ballot box.
They told people the unequivocal, undeniable naked TRUTH - the one that people began to understand as the REAL issue - They Were Being Poisoned By Monsanto’s GMOs And Its Associated Chemicals! ….their lands were being poisoned! …. their families were being poisoned!....and their planet was dying under the Monsanto assault of Poisons.
Monsanto has been poisoning the planet and everything that lives on it for many decades – almost half a century. Criminal politicians that it has been able to bribe or scare into compliance had legalistically sanctioned and PROTECTED this “poisoning of the population and environment” by and passing the “Monsanto Protection Act” which basically states in legalistic terms that no one, anywhere, ever, will be permitted to stop the expansion of Monsanto’s GMO and Chemical poisoning enterprises. Such brazen insanity has never before existed on this planet – the USA government ranks first in such insanity.
In the face of this legalistic numbojumbo, the people of Maui have stood up and declared in no uncertain terms “Monsanto get out of here with your damn poisons. Period! You will not be tolerated here. You will no longer be permitted to Poison us.! GET OUT!!!”
Now it is up to rest of us to do the same.
It is impossible to label GMOs as food BECAUSE they are not food - foods, by definition, nourish the body. GMOs destroy the bodies of whatever consumes them because they are toxic - that is, poisonous to living organisms..
No more pussyfooting with, ”Please label the GMO poisonous food so that we can know when we are eating it!” It becomes “No more GMO poisons masquerading as food. Get GMOs out of the food supply and the environment. Permanently.”
For those who believe that Bill Gates is a great philanthropist, donating billions $ to feed and vaccinate the whole planet, think again.
Bill Gates is one of the biggest investor in Monsanto and in Big Pharma’s Vaccine Industry (worth over 50 billion $ annually).
Along with these health-destructive industries, Bill Gates openly speaks of genetically engineered Smart Vaccines that will help to “solve the over-population problem” - and he is not referring to saving the poor children in the Third World.
You wonder why I classify him as one of biggest philanthropic frauds of the century.
For now, let’s follow in the footsteps of Maui - the TRUTH shall win, and it will set us free again. But the TRUTH has to be spoken loudly enough that all people can hear it - disseminated by us!!!!.
Election Bang: Maui bans GMO crops
By Jon Rappoport
November 5, 2014
Note: To those few of you who are spending big bucks to fund GMO-labeling ballot measures, I'm taking you to school in this article. Read the whole thing, especially the last part. If you want more lessons, get in touch.
Okay. Here we go.
They got into Monsanto's face. They accused Monsanto/Dow of spreading poison.
They didn't say, "You have a right to know what's in your food and we're all nice people, and reasonable people have a right to disagree."
They hit it hard.
The Maui SHAKA Movement and voteyesmaui.org and other activists won by a very narrow margin---and instituted a temporary ban on new Monsanto/Dow GMO crops in Maui County.
Their corporate opposition spent $300 for every vote they got. And lost.
A tip of the hat and a bow to Maui County activists.
You know what you're doing. You're local. You experience, first-hand, the Monsanto Roundup poison. You see something, you do something.
The ban/moratorium can only be overturned after an environmental impact statement is submitted to the Maui County Council, and after a 2/3 vote to overturn.
Without doubt, the Maui activists will monitor that process very closely and expose corrupt Council members and the upcoming parade of low-life Monsanto lawyers, PR flacks, and bagmen carrying cash for bribes.
Ultimate victory isn't guaranteed by any means, but this is a real battle, not a mock one.
Colorado lost its GMO labeling ballot measure last night, and so did Oregon.
But Maui proved, in its own backyard, that banning poison is more powerful than labeling it.
The major funders of the labeling campaigns should write some fat checks to voteyesmaui.org and SHAKA, and then also buy ads on big websites: MAUI KNOWS HOW TO BEAT MONSANTO.
Let the world know.
In the end, this isn't a consumer campaign, it's a war against lying corporate poisoners.
Saying Monsanto can keep poisoning doesn't cut it.
Update: Ballot Measure P in Humboldt County, California, passed by a wide margin. Measure P "prohibits the propagation, cultivation, raising, or growing of genetically modified organisms in Humboldt County."
Good work, Humboldt. Another ban.
***Let me explain something. The GMO-labeling ballot measures are really PR campaigns, and they keep some degree of awareness alive about GMO crops.
They're not full educational campaigns, because the amount of teaching they do is superficial, despite their claims to the contrary.
PR is slogans. Education is much, much deeper, and it certainly includes aggressive information about the horrendous effects of Roundup, among other GMO issues.
Education requires getting people to stand still long enough to actually learn something important. It isn't a brush-off.
So here's the point. If these GMO-labeling ballot campaigns are really PR, then why not redirect the PR against Monsanto and the other corporate criminals, instead of monotonously hammering away on "the right to know what's in your food"?
There's nothing to lose (after labeling defeats in California, Washington, Colorado, and Oregon), and everything to gain.
Monsanto is building this reality: GMO foods are wonderful and safe and the planet benefits.
So far, the counter-reality is: let Monsanto and their allied farmers grow their food, as long as the consumer can ID it on the label and reject it, if he wants to.
That's going to win the day?
That's the superior new reality?
That's suicide through lack of imagination and courage.
Take a few million of the dollars now being spent on pro-labeling campaigns and, instead, put it into video web ads that play all over the world:
A destitute farmer (and his family) stands in front of his wasted, dusty, super-weed-choked field, states his name, and says: "I'm an American farmer. Monsanto lied to me and killed my farm and my livelihood with their poison called Roundup. And it doesn't even work. The weeds it was supposed to knock out are bigger than ever. Monsanto strangled my soybean crop. They ruined my farm. And my daughter is sick from the Roundup poison..."
Then...boom. A few of your cold-eyed, take-no-prisoner attorneys stroll into the frame, and one of them looks into the camera and says, "Hello, Monsanto. Thinking of suing us for this ad? Bring it, baby."
