‘Right now, the heart of the ACTUAL American struggle against Monsanto is in Maui.
On Election Day, voters in Maui County passed a local ballot measure blocking Monsanto and Dow from further development of GMOs.
Maui is a very important piece of Monsanto’s empire. Because of the year-round weather, they can run many, many tests on new GMO crop varieties.
So Monsanto and Dow immediately turned around and sued Maui County.
On top of that, the federal judge in the case is Barry Kurren, who has already sided with Monsanto against Kaui’s attempt to regulate GMOs.
Monsanto’s mouthpiece, John Purcell, released a statement: “This local [Maui] referendum interferes with and conflicts with long-established state and federal laws that support both the safety and lawful cultivation of GMO plants.”
In that case, why was the ballot measure allowed to be voted on, in the first place?
Why didn’t Monsanto file suit, win its case before Election Day, and knock the measure off the ballot?
The truth is, Monsanto lost the vote. Now, they’re whining. If they had won, they wouldn’t uttered a peep of protest about the legality of the measure.’
