Dear Green American ,
Have you been following the battle in Washington State for GMO labeling? The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) has now given $7.2 million to the ‘No on 522′ campaign, against labeling of GMO foods. What is frustrating about this news is that the companines in the GMA are essentially financing ‘No on 522′ anonymously. The GMA has refused to reveal which companies have syphoned money through them to fight Washington consumers’ right to know if their food contains GMOs. Read GMO Inside's blog for more info
Tell these GMA companies they're not fooling us.
We know they are part of the GMA and giving millions to keep us in the dark about what they are feeding us. Send a letter to General Mills, Kellogg's, Kraft, Hershey, Mars, Coke, Pepsi, Nestle, Abbott, and Mead Johnson telling them to stop blocking our right to know.
Share why Washingtonians should vote yes on 522
Join the Yes on 522 campaign for virtual phone banking - calling people in WA and informing them why to vote for our right to know. It's easy. Next Monday, October 7, join GMO Inside wherever you are between 5:30-8:30 PST, for our virtual phone bank party. If you can do it for 1-2 hours, great! Any time you can give is appreciated.
Follow this link, enter your info, and then you'll be re-directed to a page that asks if you're from WA or not. Click if you are in WA or live elsewhere, watch the CallFire demo, and then follow steps for calling. CallFire is easy to use and ensures you always get through to a human.
