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. That all the members of the County Council had in their possession the 52 page, 356 referenced report compiled by Antoniou et al, in 2011, indicating that Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, with glyphosate as its active ingredient, caused birth defects, embryonic deaths, lung, kidney, heart and skeletal malformations, endocrine disruptions, human cell death, DNA damage, cancer, and Parkinson-related brain damage.
  4. That the council members were elected by the people and had a fiduciary responsibility to serve and protect the people at all costs.
  5. That since we elected them we can also de-elect them.
  6. That we have 65 Legislators that were genetically modified, having taking campaign funds from Monsanto, and that did not count our Governor, our state Dept. of Agriculture employees, the Attorney General employees, and members of the Council.

And now… the rest of the story. …..
