We’re voting yes on California’s Proposition 37, a ballot initiative that requires labeling foods containing the fruits of genetic modification.
Living in Berkeley, when “bioengineering” reigns supreme at the little college up the street, we’re rather bemused at the millions corporations are spending to defeat the measure, using the classic forms of deception previously employed to convince folks that smoking was equivalent to breathing pure mountain air.
You’d think corporateers would be delighted to have the efforts labeled and acknowledged. But no. They want to conceal their “contributions” to our dietary intake.
So here are two of the many excellent video spots produced by Vote Yes on Prop 37 featuring some very familiar faces:
Trust Us: Vote Yes on Prop 37
Grocery Costs: Vote Yes on Prop 37
Please join us in voting yes. Let’s give the corporateers their due acknowledgment.
And, no, we have no sponsors other than our own peculiar sense of obligation.
