I am writing this letter from the Island of Maui. For those who missed last nights show at www.bbsradio.com where we covered the Shaka movement. This is the people of Maui’s movement to create a moratorium on GMO food production especially concerning the herbicides and pesticides used by Monsanto on the island. Many refer to Monsanto as mon-Satan, food terrorists, Farm Nazis etc. Over 160 countries have banned GMOs based on true research into the effects these crops and farming procedures have on the people and the land. Everything from birth defects, sterilization, cancer and other less extreme health hazards have been connected to these practices. The big question is why is this not happening in America? The answer is corporate greed without conscience. We live in a corporate dictorial democracy. The Republic and democracy have been kicked to the curb. The peoples voice is not heard and their best interest is not served. A classic example is the vote to stop GMOs and the procedures using extensive pesticides and herbicides on Maui. The people banned together on the island and sent a clear message to Monsanto no more franken foods and poisoning the land, air and water. They made it very clear they did not like what Monsanto was doing to the land and their children.
The measure passed yet the courts are denying the peoples vote. The courts on other islands have ruled against the peoples wishes and it seems to be moving in the same direction for Maui. My question is who do the courts serve? Who do the judges serve? Did they take an oath? Bottom line is they work for you not the major corporations and it is a breach of trust to not carry out the peoples wishes. It is up to the people to make sure they understand this. Maui will be the example for others to follow. What happens in Maui will be an example for the rest of the world. Maui did not ask for labeling they banned them from continuing in what can only be seen as corporate bullying and genocidal practices. Forget about labeling follow the lead of 160 other countries and put an end to this madness. When the real science is done and the damages tallied up we are going to see some of the most criminal activity that has ever transpired on the planet. Vote with your dollar. Buy only certified organics, best to buy unprocessed food and local. It is time to wake up to what is being done to your food, your air, your water and the land. Together lest put an end to this insanity. Support the Shaka movement.
