After participating in yesterdays events regarding labeling food & products that contain GMO, I went to this site
to sign a petition and could not find one there. While I have only belonged for s short time, I did see positive results regarding email searches without a warrant.
I would suggest that this could be a powerful tool, not only sent out to your membership, but also to the many members who have the ability to share with others.
for you consideration,
I know you care. please share this list of GMO foods to avoid. http://www.elephantjournal.com/2013/04/butter-salt-a-side-of-poison-how-to-protect-your-family-from-monsanto-genetically-modified-foods-marylee-fairbanks/
Apparell sales would not only help with financial support for the movement this would help to spread the word one shirt, hoodie,or mug at a time. I love apparel that does more than look well. It's a great conversational piece that's an ice breaker to those who don't know GMO exists. I would love to be one of the first to wear a LabelGMOs hoodie
When I created Ventura Action Meeting event for May 12 and let the country go thru as Afghanistan, NOW I CAN'T EDIT IT! So it doesn't show up on the Ventura County map. Can you fix it?
Would be great to have an automated email to congress, local and state gov insisting that all GMO product is labled as such!
Hi, Please contact me. Sharon 949 653 1097
Also Can Label GMO's have their own FB page?
Thank you very much for your HARD work,
This has probably already been suggested, but I was wondering why there is not more of a focus on non-GMO labeling. It seems this would avoid all the mess of trying to get the big companies to label, and instead would give any company that doesn't use GMO components the option of using the label to their advantage, much the same way companies do with the 'organic' label. If you don't have a non-GMO label, it's implied you're using GMOs.
Please design a poster featuring the human anatomical form pointing out the organs that are damaged by GMO's. I think this would drive home to people that this is about their health- not just a technical issue. At the bottom of the poster, footnote the research sources and sponsor links so people can read more.

Take the time to educate each member of your family that is old enough to understand. Ask them to share this information with at least one friend and ask them to share. First keep it simple have a small true bit of information to share. Always ask questions and have the answer? Do people have any idea what this Monsanto GMO stuff is all about..do they understand lables and what the numbers mean? Something like " Be aware of the difference between" All Natural and GMO." If we are to share we need to know what we are talking about. This is a major well hidden in plain sight issue!
I support californias gmo labeling initiative but not because of personal health concerns. I just don't trust Monsanto and the rest of the biotech industry with the worlds food supply.
Take a look at monsanto's contract terms if you buy their roundup ready seed corn, soybeans or cotton.
No lifeform patents, revoke lifeform patents.
I understand that this is a ballot issue that will be decided in CA, but it is an issue that effects our entire nation, and the nations in Central and South America that rely upon us!
The oppenents of labeling have endorsements from outside of CA ( many), it would seem good and fair to spread the effort outside of CA on your part as well!
I am a member of Occupella, a group that leads singing at demonstrations. We have an anti-GMO song and other relevant songs. Contact me if you'd like music at your demo or meeting. nancy at sisterschoice.com
At the bottom of the page the very first choice should read "Volunteer" and instead it says "vouteer". That's pretty important, I'd fix that stat.
