Aerial Views of Biotech Seed Crops on Kauai
Time is winding down. On July 31, the county council will hold a second public hearing on Bill 2491. Here are ten aerial pictures showing pesticide reach and land used for experimental GMO crops. I’ve also included a short video of the Waimea chemical report done by attorneys Kyle Smith and Gerard Jervis on July 13, 2013 at the Waimea Canyon Middle School. This 15-minute video provides evidence that the people of Waimea are being poisoned by chemical pesticides without their consent or knowledge.
Also, Kaua’i residents are receiving phone calls for a poll from the Hawaii Crop Improvement Association, whose members, according to their website include “include Dow AgroScience, Monsanto, Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Syngenta and BASF.” The calls only ask you to record messages against Bill 2491 that are sent to county council members; even if you want to record a message in support of Bill 2491, the poller will give you words to say in opposition to the Bill.
If you haven’t given testimony, please email your concerns to [email protected]. Include your name, occupation and where you live on island. This information is helpful to the council.
