Hawaii: The GMO Testing Ground For Decades

Well, no wonder my family and I were so sick most of the time we lived in Hawaii considering Monsanto’s GMO farms, chemicals, and GMO food.  What is even more surprising is that in all the time that I lived on the Big Island, I heard not one word about any of this.  Time to change that; please pass this documentary on and let as many people know as you can.

Stop Monsanto From Poisoning Hawai’i: Genetic Engineering Chemical Warfare

For over 20 years, Hawai’i has been the global center for the open-field testing of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s), including pharmaceutical crops. Over 5,000 experimental tests have been conducted by Monsanto, Dow, Dupont/Pioneer, Syngenta and BASF that spray chemicals on an almost daily basis on our most valuable lands. They are supported by tax-breaks, and beneficial relationships with landowners, regulators and politicians. We estimate GMO companies own or lease 40,000 — 60,000 acres that are sprayed with over 70 different chemicals.

A new vision for Hawai’i would promote small farms that grow chemical-free produce, employ our youth and restore the indigenous ahupua’a system. Hawai’i has less than 3,000 acres of certified organic farmland, which is 0.27% of Hawaiian farmland.

Kamehameha Schools is Hawaii’s largest private landowner. Despite Kamehameha’s public statements about sustainability and conservation, they lease substantial amounts of land to multi-national biotech firms, including Monsanto, Dow, Dupont/Pioneer and Syngenta for GMO open field tests and seed corn production.

Kamehameha is the only institution with the land, capital and resources to reduce our food imports, that are now over 90%, and ensure that Hawai’i does not run out of food in case of natural disasters or rising oil prices.

    Out of all the insanity that comes from the psychopaths that think they own us I think GMO and the way it is shoved down our collective gullet is the worst.
