It’s been less than three weeks since the California Right to Know campaign submitted enough signatures to put mandatory GMO labeling on this November’s ballot.
If the vote were today, it would pass!
Current polls show a majority of California voters support the Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act. Unfortunately, the biotech industry is spending millions of dollars to convince California consumers they don’t really want GMO labeling.
|Will you make a donation to help the campaign fight back against industry lies?|
A website, StopCostlyFoodLabeling.com, makes the false claim that labeling will “increase your family’s food prices by hundreds of dollars per year.” The domain name is registered to “Domains by Proxy,” a private company whose sole purpose is to be the official owner of domains so that the real owner’s name is kept secret.
The only “consumer” group listed as a member of the anti-labeling coalition is the “Consumers Coalition of California.” Strangely, for a group claiming to be a coalition of consumers, this group has no website (how then, one wonders, are consumers to join the coalition?), a history of supporting big business interests, and a president who lives in Austin, Texas—not California.
Make no mistake: this is “astroturfing,” a corporate campaign designed to look like grassroots activism. In other words: a lie.
|Your support is urgently needed to help the real grassroots movement stand up to industry giants! Please give now, and please give as much as you can.|
Remember, if you donate by May 26, the Right to Know Campaign’s biggest supporters will double your contribution, and ANH-USA will give you a complimentary one-year membership with ANH-USA!
From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for any donation you can make, no matter how small.
