Most of you reading this have no idea how desperate the biotech industry has been to block GMO labeling laws: they’ve committed election money laundering crimes, hired negative P.R. trolls, paid major publishers to place character assassination hit pieces against activists, unleashed threatening phone call campaigns to intimidate people, strong-armed science journals into suppressing valid science, intimidated universities where GMO labeling speakers were scheduled to speak, vandalized wiki pages and much more (some of which you wouldn’t even believe). Make no mistake that the biotech industry and the Grocery Manufacturers of America are a criminal cabal of propagandists who will do almost anything to block GMO labeling laws. They respect no ethics, no science and no law. They are, in effect, “biotech terrorists” who use mafia-style tactics to protect their profit interests.
This week, the great state of Vermont — the same state that was the first to abolish slavery — has now passed a mandatory GMO labeling law that Gov. Peter Shumlin has said he will sign. This law, labeled “114-40,” will require mandatory GMO labeling of foods by July 1, 2016.
The law is the first “clean” GMO labeling law to be passed in America, requiring no triggering events by neighboring states. It is an enormous victory for grassroots consumer activism and a massive defeat for the biotech industry and its army of anti-science intimidation operatives.
