YES on 522 Phone Bank

A veer away from visual matters & photography to food matters food for thought.

In 2010,  our President Obama’s choice of cabinet members, was perplexing given his statements
I felt I knew where it would lead us, & sadly it has led us here we have to plead to get genetically modified food and produce labeled.

Please, please HELP us say YES on 522 or it’s going to happen again people, just like California’s prop 37.
Corporate giants are trying to squash OUR right to know via labels, if we don’t do something 522 will be defeated by the likes of Monsanto, Dow, Dupont, 3M, Clorox,
(seriously now, the new owners of Burt’s Bees) General Mills, Kelloggs, Pepsi Co. Coke a Cola, Unilever, McDonald’s on & on, don’t let them win.
We the people of the US will not know, we will not have labels, what the EU and other parts of the world already have we will lose the right to, the right to KNOW!

If genetically engineered organisms are safe lets Label them, that is all we ask.

 

In the interim please join us in asking President Obama to do what he said, label gmo foods and produce.

 

Thanks for your time & good luck to us all.

XO

People who want to help support Washington’s Labelling campaign… I have good news!

You can!

From anywhere in the world even in Canada.  I’m not talking financially (although that would be appreciated go to yeson522.com so that they can fund their ads). I’m talking with your time and your wonderful God-Given Gift of the Gab!  That handful of big multinational corporations are spreading lies and waging a deceitful campaign just like they did last year in California.  In Washington however, many of these corporate donors tried to hide their identity.  They were slapped by a lawsuit by none other than Washington State’s Attorney General to get them to comply with campaign rules.

Those monster multinational corporations who oppose the measure say that “labelling is incomplete”.  That it’s not useful given that over half the food sold wouldn’t be covered.  Don’t be fooled by them – they would oppose labelling on…
