We are creatures of habit, easily distracted. Distracted with a pretty label that makes us feel “safe.” Meanwhile, the GMO juggernaut rolls on, and the pesticides associated with them pollute the rest of the world with toxic waste.
It’s a biotech takeover disguised as a “right to farm” movement to protect small farmers. Don’t be fooled. Just look at the list of supporters.
GMOs, Glyphosate, Disease, and Corruption in High Places
Unless genetically engineered crops (GMOs) are restricted, then our choice to grow and eat non-GMO will be a moot point because contamination will have ended our ability to choose.
While organic farmers try and figure out how to survive in the face of what appears to be an unstoppable government backed onslaught on their very right to exist, biotech firms along with their flunky farmers are doing the happy dance. Why? Because they are apparently immune from any type of liability if their GMO crops contaminate and ruin organic farms.
The initiative says that binding regulations must be implemented to prevent the release of genetically engineered plants that can persist and invade the environment or lead to transgene flow into native populations or local varieties at centres of origin and of genetic diversity.
