• Tricky Telephone Propaganda on Kaua’i – Watch Out

    Posted on July 24, 2013 by in Action Alert!, BILL 2491


    The other side is phoning Kaua’i residents with propaganda and trying to get you to record testimony AGAINST our bill!

    A friend said they got a telephone poll call from Hawaii Crop Improvement asking to record a message to the Council that stated that you opposed Bill 2491 (They did not use the Bill #).

    First asked if they opposed the Bill. They said they supported it. Then they were asked to record a message to the Council in opposition. They said again they support it and had sent written testimony to that effect.

    They decided perhaps they should record a support message so that their opinion would be correctly registered. They were given instruction on how to proceed and again were told that the message would be in opposition. When they again stated that they were in favor of the Bill, that was acknowledged and then just before beginning to record the woman provided language that would be in opposition. So they refused to record because each time recording was mentioned they received a message that it would be in opposition to the Bill and they supported it.

    There were many statements made in the conversation in favor of opposition to the bill. This was not an unbiased poll. The call came from telephone number 221-0175.


    What you can do:

    1. If you support Bill 2491, DO NOT RECORD A MESSAGE.
    2. Write a email blast to all your Kaua’i friends to let them know that it is happening, especially if they are not on facebook and such.
    3. Call important people you know.
    4. Invite all your friends to write a testimonial: Here the how-to and more information http://www.stoppoisoningparadise.org/#!get_involved/c8k2
    5. Stay pono, educate yourself, research your questions, talk to your family and friends about pesticides and the bill.
