The 1st lawsuits have been filed against the Kauai Island GMO bill

RECAP: All the bill does is require the seed companies (DuPont, Monsanto, Syngenta, BSAF, Pioneer, etc) (i) disclose WHAT they are spraying; (ii) WHEN they spray with 48 hours notice prior to spraying; and (iii) have a no-spray buffer zone of 100 ft (reduced from 500 ft) from schools, business, homes, people.

All of the companies above have jointly filed a lawsuit to stop implementation of the bill. The bill is reasonable and well written. The companies have poured money into the reelection accounts of the Kauai Mayor (vetoed the bill - County counsel over-rode the veto) and the Governor (spoke against the bill) and both are Democrats.

Attorneys have agreed to defend the County of Kauai pro bono. Keep good positive thought coming. If the lawsuit gets booted up to Federal Court the Island Kauai County has no chance against the current US Supreme Court. So much for State's rights.

1. As restrictive as HI is about invasive species it

should be a slam dunk. Why turn loose plants designed not to be killed?

2. That's why so many on Kaua'i wanted this law to pass but

the GMO companies are using their money to strike it down. They don't want to reveal what poisons they're using or have buffer zones to keep their poison from spreading more readily to people's lungs.

The Island of Hawai'i kicked them out all together.

5. Big Mutant GMO, Inc. (R) often increases the amount of chemicals sprayed on crops

the opposite of what they (R) claim...How Republicon is that?

Thoughts for our Island to keep its well fought for law. And, the fascists on the SC to keep its nose out of our business.

4. Good vibes for the island!

All they want is to know what those companies are doing to their environment. They're not even banning the GMO seeds, but maybe they should try. After reading some of the unbiased, long-term research on GMOs, I'm not so sure about their safety or their overall effects on people's health.
