Know your enemy in the war against GMO food.

The Pro GMO companies spent huge money to defeat Proposition 37 (The bill to mandate the labeling of GMO foods) In California a few months ago. Why? Because if foods are labeled as such people most likely won’t buy them, EXACTLY like whats happening in Europe. That’s California. But they have to defeat the same bill if and when it appears in other states another 49 times. We need to keep the pressure on! This is winable!

When I found out that Prop 37 lost because BIG MONEY squashed it I found out who financed its demise and then called,emailed and wrote to as many companies as I could to say “I’m not buying any of your products because this is what you did!” I even called up Lara Bar who is a non- GMO company BUT owned by General Mills. I spoke to someone there and they said “But we are part of the non-GMO Project” I said ” Too bad, I am not buying your stuff anymore because your parent company did what it did”

I know, I’m nuts. But I am 100% against GMOs and their bad science.

General Mills is not the only company who spent $$ to defeat the GMO Labeling Bill , there were tons of others.

The chart below are those who opposed Proposition 37 and the huge amount of money they spent to get it squashed. It’s always interesting to me to see how a company will spend it’s money especially during a recession . Call them up and fire away with all your anger. Teach them a lesson. They do have all the money but the consumer has the true power because if we stop buying the shit they are selling then they will succumb.

If you go to the website where I found the chart below you will also find the AWESOME companies who actually SUPPORTED Proposition 37, call them to and thank them. The website is http://www.kcet.org/news/ballotbrief/elections2012/propositions/prop-37-funding-genetically-engineered-food.html.

I called General Mills and its company Lara Bar. Lara Bar is a non gmo company but if we punish them enough then they will cry like little bitches to General Mills. I also called Dean Foods, Pepsico, Coke, Kraft, Kelloggs and a bunch of others.

KNOW YOUR ENEMY

Monsanto certainly got a big win with that piece of legislation that literally protects them from being sued if you get sick from their GMOs (which is an admission that they know their science is garbage) but if a label it bill can stick anywhere in the USA it will be the beginning of the end for their GMO reign.

Yeah…Imagine how sick GMO food makes us.
