California’s ballot initiative to label GMO’s has caused quite a stir.
Food biotechnology companies are spending millions to defeat the initiative.
The Yes on 37 California Right to Know people don’t have nearly as much money, but they are doing what they can. They have a new video ad, well worth a look: “Agent Orange is harmless.”
And another: “Vote Yes for Labeling GMOs.”
But the “don’t miss” has to be this fast-paced rap taking a broad look at the issues: “OMG GMOs!”
The polls say voters approve GMO labeling by a very wide margin: 65% to 24%.
Will they vote this way in November? Or will outspending by opponents prevail?
