Monsanto manipulates working class family farmers to help fuel its anti-family farming agenda. It’s a new low for Monsanto. I speak for many when I say the people of Hawaii will come to the aid of small farmers who stop growing GMO papaya, and join the fight to keep the multi-billion dollar GMO industry from poisoning future generations and their farmlands.
Doublespeak biotech claims about GMO papaya allegedly saving the industry deserve clarification. Debate rages all over the earth as to whether the cure came before or after the disease. All of science (except Monsanto) says the opposite of what Monsanto’s paid scientists say, namely: There was NO ringspot virus in Puna (since 1978) until AFTER Dr. Dennis Gonsalves began open air field testing of GMO papaya ringspot virus (PRSV) resistant papaya in Hawaii in 1991.
Yet, I grow non-GMO organic papayas! How is that possible without GMO? I got no viruses-but if Monsanto seeds blew into my yard, my guess is that my papaya would get sick with a ‘cold’. I’m not here as a “Hollywood Rich Person”. I’m here because I want to grow good food for my grandkids and yours.
The GMO papaya’s a false savior for a problem which didn’t exist until its own unregulated TESTING of a papaya virus- here in the Hawaiian proving grounds for GMO, and ROUND UP, Agent orange and other Monsanto chemical weapons.
The outbreak might not have been caused by deliberate means, but, undoubtably, it did fuel the first commercial GMO approval; Some call it “Rainbow papaya,” I call it the Monsanto Trojan Horse.
