Washington state labeling campaign update


$17.1 Million Worth of Lies

How many lies will $17.1 million buy? Enough to sink another GMO labeling initiative?
Opponents of I-522, Washington State’s initiative to require mandatory labeling of GMOs, hope so. They’re banking on their ability to broadcast enough lies, often enough, to enough voters, to defeat I-522.
And if they do, the GMO labeling movement might not recover.
In 15 short days, Washington State voters will begin mailing in their ballots. In 33 days – on November 5 - it will all be over.
That’s all the time we have left to raise enough money to reach every voter in Washington State.
Our opponents are desperate. And filthy rich. A dangerous combination.
Their lies are familiar to us. But maybe not so to millions of voters who are hearing about GMOs for the first time.
Who are “they”? The NO on I-522 campaign is funded by Monsanto. Dow. Dupont. Bayer. BASF. And the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA). The GMA has kicked in $7.2 million on behalf of food companies like Pepsi, General Mills, Coca-Cola, Kraft and others – cowardly companies that are funneling their donations through the GMA to avoid the kind of bad publicity that came raining down on them last year, when they publicly donated to defeat a GMO labeling initiative in California.
Who are “we”? We are moms who want better food choices for our families. We are students. And grandparents. We are republicans, democrats, independents. We are blue-collar and white-collar workers. We are old. We are young.
We are fed up with letting Monsanto, the giant GMA lobbying group, the FDA and the USDA poison our food. And trample our rights.
We are the GMO labeling movement. And it’s up to us to win this key battle.
Please make a generous donation today. Every dime you donate here will go directly to the YES on I-522 campaign. Thank you!

More You Can Do . . .

We can’t say it enough. The battle to win mandatory labeling of GMOs in Washington State is everyone’s battle. Yours. Ours. Our future generations’.
Without question, the YES on 522 campaign needs money. Our opposition now has $17.1 million to spend on drowning out the voice of reason. And winning voters over to its side.
But money isn’t everything. You can also help counter the NO on 522-funded deluge of misinformation by making one-on-one phone calls to voters. We need to reach thousands of voters before November 5. You can help. The YES campaign makes it easy, by providing free training. It won’t cost you a dime. All you need is a phone and an Internet connection.
You can also help by reaching out to everyone you know who might be able to donate, or make phone calls, or help spread the word far and wide.
And don’t forget to boycott the companies and brands that are spending millions to defeat your right to know. Some of them may be hiding behind the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA). But they’re not fooling anyone.
This is your movement. You’ve invested in it. Built it. Now’s the time to bring it home with a win that will ultimately force mandatory labeling nationwide.
