What's More Powerful - A Million More People or A Million Dollars?
What’s More Powerful – A million people for the right to know what’s in our food or another Million Dollars from Monsanto and big corporations?
Here we go – the powerful Monsanto Corporation today is pouring even more money into the campaign against Proposition 37 – the simple measure that would just give us the right to know what’s in our food. Monsanto joins a who’s who of corporate powers trying to stop this pro-consumer measure in California.
Beyond the irony that Monsanto and these others already label their foods to show they were produced using genetic engineering in 50 other countries – there is a fundamental dynamic of people power versus corporate power emerging in this campaign.
While the corporations have been writing checks, we’ve been organizing online and in local communities throughout California.
The polls show we have actually been gaining ground. Why? Because the simple truth is that these Genetically Modified foods have never been proven safe for human consumption – and California families just want the right to know what’s in our food.
