What is This Maui GMO Moratorium Initiative About?

June 17, 2014
Eloise Engman - Founder, GMO FREE Maui • Ha‘iku , Maui Weekly

If you live in Maui County, you'll soon be bombarded with misinformation and blatant lies from GMO corporations--the corporations poisoning our keiki, the worlds food supply and our 'aina. Biotech propaganda will get increasingly intense as the election approaches. Remember, there are no laws to prevent corporations from lying. It's free speech.

This moratorium is about people--Hawaiian, haole, all kinds--who love these precious islands. We are standing up together and saying "'nuff' already!"

This is about everyone who wants good healthy food and a healthy environment.

This is about healing the land, our bodies and the Earth. It's a movement towards sanity.

Our natural farmers here in the islands hold deep wisdom. They are organizing and teaching about growing food in ways that restore the 'aina.

Hawai'i has no need of GMO corporations, which use prime agricultural lands to grow corporately patented seeds that withstand saturation with biotech patented poisons. The seeds are created to sell more poisons.

Hawai'i Nei is in the midst of an ecological agricultural renaissance--growing healthy food. This goes hand-in-hand with Hawai'I's growing agri-tourism market.

We have nearly every climate for many niche crops. We have everything we need for local, homegrown abundance--to consume and to export.

This election year, there are many candidates running for office who support food security through local food production. This is a critical year to vote. Please ensure you are registered by Thursday, July 10, to be able to vote in the primary, where many important races will be determined.
