Aloha Hawaii I am Roseanne Barr and I am here to help wake you up about GMOs and genetic modification in time to help protect Hawaii island on July 2nd! The Hawaii County Council will hear BILL 79 to prohibit GMOs on July 2nd. Please, pay attention, submit written testimony and come testify in person! Tell the Council to say yes to Bill 79 and ban GMOs! Come to the Kona Council Chambers by 9:00 AM in the West Hawaii Civic Center and wear green to show your support for the bill!
Genetically Modified Organisms or GMOs are in our food supply even though they are banned in more than thirty countries due to health and environmental biohazards. The consumption of GMO food has been linked to cancer, reproductive failure, kidney and liver damage in animal studies. With more than 85% of processed food containing engineered GMOs, we are the human lab rats! I like my food to be real, organic, without other species’ DNA and toxins engineered into it, thank you very much.
Genetic modification involves a group of technologies being used to change the genetic makeup of cells and force different species across natural boundaries in laboratories. Open air GMO crops contaminate the DNA of natural agriculture and already other countries have begun rejecting US imports because of GMO contamination. If we want to preserve the real seeds, pure agriculture and endangered species of Hawaii, we need to stop GMOs.
I came here to grow organic macadamia nuts because I love Hawaii and the pristine nature we live aloha for every day and I believe in respecting the land and taking care of it. These GMOs are mostly engineered to sell more chemicals, they are made by CHEMICAL COMPANIES not FARMERS, hello!
Who wants to eat chemically soaked, toxic food engineered in a lab and made by the same companies that make bleach? Is that how ancient Hawaii sustained itself, with chemicals linked to birth defects and gene guns? Did you consent to be experimented on and have Hawaii Island become a toxic playground for the same chemical companies who made Agent Orange, DDT and Dioxin?
If you love Hawaii’s nature, and want to preserve and protect our agriculture, please act now and submit testimony supporting Bill 79 to the Hawaii County Council to prohibit GMO agriculture on the island of Hawaii.
We are shipping in more than 90% of Hawaii’s food supply, and Hawaii island could be growing plenty of food for the islands, we are still far less contaminated than Kauai, Molokai and Oahu. Kauai residents have a class action lawsuit for GMO related chemical poisoning and Molokai is turning into a dustbowl while the GMO companies are donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to our elected officials. We cannot afford to sacrifice prime agricultural land to GMO companies. The safety of our soil, agriculture, air and water on a chemical and genetic level is at stake. This is our DNA we are talking about here people, the DNA of life as we know it, and these companies have been kicked out of dozens of countries for being dangerous to health and environment.
So wake up and testify, July 2nd 9:00AM, in Kona or satellite locations you can go to in Hilo, Pahoa, Ka’u or Waimea so no excuses, don’t make me get nuts now! Please stand up for Hawaii and urge the Hawaii County Council to pass Bill 79. You can email your testimony to email@example.com before noon on July 1st and go to BILL79.ORG for details!
Together, we can be a GMO Free Hawaii! Mahalo!
