Maui Citizens Get November Vote on GMO’s and Pesticides - Crowd Funding Campaign Launched to Counter Agro-Chemical Company Propaganda Millions.
Date:8/4/2014

Paia, Hawaii (PRWEB) August 04, 2014

Registered Maui County voters will be asked in November to ratify a temporary moratorium on GMO and Pesticide crop production and open-air experimentation until an Environmental and Public Health Impacts Study (EPHIS) of the practices specific to the fields in Maui County show scientific proof that the activities here are not harmful to the people, the land, water, air, and reefs for current and future generations.

In another similar voter contest, California’s Prop 37 for GMO labeling, advocacy groups funded by the Agro-Chemical industry dwarfed their opponents by spending $64 million dollars on local advertising, some of which was criticized as misleading. (3)

Rather than complying with a new local law on the island of Kauai that created simple buffer zones between pesticide flooded fields and public schools the Agro-Chemical companies chose to sue to block the community’s measure. (4)

“Tax deductible donations are being solicited through a crowd funding campaign at http://igg.me/at/donateshaka to counter the advertising that’s flooding our community from chemical industry backed advocacy groups” says Mark Sheehan, one of the five citizens who initiated a successful local petition drive and a spokesperson for the grassroots group The SHAKA Movement.

SHAKA stands for Sustainable Hawaiian Agriculture for the Keiki (children) and the Aina (land).

Adds Sheehan: “As a grassroots, public service, educational organization, SHAKA is committed to delivering to the citizens of Maui County unbiased, factual information that is not controlled or manipulated by corporate interests. We do so to empower the citizens of Maui County to make a truly informed personal decision in November. We encourage all Maui County residents t
