The People vs. Monsanto: How the Lying Giant Prevailed in Hawaii

For related articles and more information, please visit OCA's Genetic Engineering page, Millions Against Monsanto page, and our Hawaii News page.

On Wednesday, April 25th, the hearing was held to label GMOs on Oahu. I had the rare privilege to be the first testifier. My points were simple and to the point.

1. The Monsanto people will blatantly lie about no testing ever being done or any reports showing adverse health effects of GMOs being sprayed with Monsanto's Roundup.

2. That we are a government of, for and by the people. Not the Corporation.

3.

4. That the council members were elected by the people and had a fiduciary responsibility to serve and protect the people at all costs.
