My Way of Thinking: Snow, travel and GM foods
But the effort to eliminate or limit GM crops in the U.S. never stops. The war to require GM/biotech food to be labeled appears to be a non-ending effort by activists in the U.S. Hawaii’s legislature tabled a proposal to have a referendum on such labeling at the end of March.
California’s proposed labeling referendum was defeated last fall, and activists are trying to bring such labeling to a public vote in several other states.
A lot of effort and money was required to defeat the ballot initiative in California. We should expect activists that are showing resolve to require the labeling to continue their effort with a passion like we’ve not seen previously because they are effectively recruiting more and more soccer moms to join the fray.
