Opinion polls say most California voters support GMO labeling, but labeling opponents (Dupont, Monsanto) are outspending us 7 to 1. PLEASE SUPPORT PROPOSITION 37. Watch these videos and help them go viral, volunteer, donate, whatever, just TAKE ACTION!

Nov 6 VOTE to LABEL GMOs! - Corporations owning some of the nation's most popular organic brands (Horizon, Silk, Kashi, Cascadian Farms, R.W. Knudsen's, etc.) have joined Monsanto and the biotechnology industry in fighting California citizen initiative, Proposition 37, that will mandate GMO labeling . And if we win in California, companies will then likely be forced to label GMOs nationwide.

GMO Interview with Jeffrey Smith ::: Prepare for the November 6th Vote on Prop 37! in California
Hi there, Please make sure you are prepared to teach people why we need to support California Prop 37, the mandatory labelling of GMOs.
Please watch this video to educate yourself about just how and why GMOs are harmful to the environment, to farmers, to animals, to babies, and to you! In just a few minutes Jeffrey Smith, acclaimed author of 'Seeds of Deception,' will describe to you why we need to remove GMOs from our diet and from the planet. Also, please make sure you support the vote for Prop 37 on November 6th, 2012 in California, the vote to demand mandatory GMO labeling on all foods!
Note: In all other states (20 states so far) where this law was proposed Monsanto was able to reverse it because Monsanto literally rules/owns the key government positions/offices relative to this issue. However, California is different. Prop 37 is a grassroots initiative created by the people (A Grandmom in Marin started it). Hence, in California, Monsanto must stop the people to stop the vote. Monsanto may have control over the government, but they don't have control over us now do they. So please rise up and stop them. The Government can't stop Monsanto but the People Can! If we get this law passed it will deal a serious blow to Monsanto. 
By the way, a big reason why I am so vehemently opposed to Monsanto is that I have a massive amount of first hand eyewitness experience of the carnage they wreak in India, where every 30 minutes another farmer commits suicide by drinking roundup. Often it is hard to control my outrage against these diabolical Monsters. Someday I hope they all experience the fate of Icelandic bankers. Indeed, may Monsanto's Execs come face to face with Polly Higgins in the The Hague's ICJ!   Thanks    Prashanti

Odwalla. Cascadian Farms. R.W. Knudsen. Horizon. Pepsi Coke Smuckers Kellogs. That’s just the short list of brands owned by companies willing to spend thousands of dollars to keep you from knowing what’s in your food.
Say it Isn't So: Organic Brands Backing the Campaign to Defeat GMO Labeling The next time you take a swig of Odwalla's Organic Carrot Juice, or munch on a bowl of Orville Redenbacher's Organic popcorn, take note: A lot of popular organic and all-natural brands are made by companies that are spending
"You might want to think twice about food shopping at Walmart before the next family barbecue. The store has admitted it will start selling genetically engineered sweet corn – the first such sweet corn to be widely available as a whole food on American supermarket shelves." Read more here:

Jeffrey Smith’s new documentary Genetic Roulette—The Gamble of Our Lives is turning out to be a life-changer, and you can watch it for free online from September 15-22 at: www.GeneticRouletteMovie.comSLR is gearing up to launch a very exciting campaign to support the campaign to Label GMOs in California - Yes to Prop 37. We are looking for volunteers in the Bay Area who can join our efforts. Everything from marches, to public art projects, teach-ins, BBQs, pub-crawls and more!! Please leave a message here or email ao@ HTTP:// to get involved!!!

While $2.6 million had been raised so far supporting Prop 37, a whopping $23.5 million (for visual purpose: $23,000,000 dollars) has been donated to fighting Prop 37. Biotech giant Monsanto donated $4,208,000 alone. Nov. 10-11 Green Festival SF, CA Green Festival is back in San Francisco this Fall! Please volunteer with us once again.
