Shiva and GMOs
I just read two other interesting articles (“Food as Weapon,” Jan. 9), one by a well-known environmental activist who helped start the anti-GMO movement and another by an actual farmer from India. You’d think they’d both be cheering Shiva and dissing GMOs, but they don’t. Worth reading.

It’s ironic that you shared posts that directly and indirectly were addressed last night–so I hope you made the AMAZING event! If not, find it online and check it out as she covers all this, and much more. Governments are bought and used as vehicles of corporate greed–and Mark Lynas is one of the few activists that [have] turned to the dark side (Monsanto+).
Trust but always verify; not everything online is accurate [or] unbiased. Keep digging and I hope you make the Rally today and/or event tonight too! If you eat food, and plan to continue living on this planet, it would be a wise investment of time.

At the last GMO labeling hearing (“Council Dodge,” Dec. 5), what was interesting was Nestor Garcia’s inane statement that if this was such an important issue how come only 30 people showed up? And that was before he left the Council to work for the Monsanto-funded Kapolei Chamber of Commerce.
On January 9th, there was another hearing that no one but the biotech industry knew about. The resolution that was passed did not include labeling. Basically, it was a one-sided hearing favoring the biotech industry. Bear in mind that most of the Council bends over so far forward for Monsanto it’s a wonder they don’t fall over. Take Ernie Martin: After accepting $8,000.00 from Monsanto, why would he bite the hand that feeds him? Kymberly Pine, who took Tom Berg’s seat, told voters before the election that she supported the labeling of GMOs. So, how come she never said anything and simply voted in favor of the resolution? Government in Hawaii is bought and paid for by Monsanto.
