Hawaii Mamas: Petition to stop GMO farming
 
Aloha Wahines!

Hawaii Mayor Harry Kim vetoed the bill to ban GMO farming in Hawaii, but we have the chance to override the veto! Please sign this and pass it on! Mahalo! GMO farming has been devastating for all farmers.

Excuse my ignorance, but what is GMO farming?

GMO = genetically modified organism, also called GE = genetically engineered

GMO seeds do not make more seeds, which means farmers have to keep buying more seeds. GMO also mixes the genes of food with other genes from animals.

Here's a GMO video:

They borrowed money to buy 'magic seeds' that didn't make enough to pay back the loan, then they have no crops and no seeds. :(

GMO food has been found to lower the immune system and also cause infertility.

**I just realized that the veto was overridden! :yay: This is great news for Hawaii! I knew that time was short on this petition, but I posted this because I just found the Hawaii forum here. Good to know about GMO food anyways. **
