Editor’s Note: In case you missed our alert, take the opportunity to watch Genetic Roulette for free until the end of October, 2012, and also see our GMO category for many more articles and videos. Prop 37 is an historic opportunity — I hope that all who can will get involved.
Monsanto and friends are spending over $1 million a day to fight GMO labeling and defeat Prop. 37. You can help. Join the volunteers to fight back now!

In less than two weeks, Californians will vote on Prop. 37. This is an historic campaign — it would mean that for the first time in the United States, consumers would have the right to know if the food they are eating has been genetically tampered with by chemical companies. Nearly one million Californians signed their names to put the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act — aka Prop 37 — on the ballot, and over 90% of Americans say they support labeling GMOs. But right now, the world’s largest pesticide and junk food companies, led by Monsanto, DuPont, Dow Chemical, Pepsi, Kraft & Coca Cola have invested over $40 million and are spending $1 million per day to deceive Californians. They are flooding the state with misleading ads to confuse and scare the voters and to trick people into voting against their own best interests. And it’s working. In the past week our poll numbers have dropped from 61% to 48%. We must fight back.
