From Shaka Movement on Maui…
Five Maui County citizens are going toe-to-toe with Hawaii’s mammoth agricultural biotech industry with the submission of a new ordinance, written by the people, for the people and voted on by the people, as a ballot initiative in the 2014 November general elections.
This first-of-its-kind on Maui citizens’ initiative calls for a temporary moratorium of all genetic engineering (GE) operations within Maui County until the Biotech companies finance a detailed Environmental and Public Health Impacts Study (EPHIS), administered by the county, showing current scientific data and proof that open air experimentation of GE crops and associated mixed pesticide use is not harmful to people and the land.
There will be huge march and rally 3/30, Sunday with a march starting at 12 noon at the Maui War Memorial Stadium. 2pm Ralley at NKE Canoe Hale Kahului. Please see the Shaka movement website for more details.
