Urge the Kaua'i County Council to protect our families from exposure to harmful pesticides applied by GMO companies.
Kaua'i is ground zero for GMO testing and seed development and massive pesticide spraying. The world's largest pesticide and biotech corporations — Syngenta, Dow, Monsanto, BASF and Pioneer (DuPont) — spray many tons of dangerous "restricted use" pesticides. And yet, the public does not know what is being sprayed, when or where it is sprayed. Since GMO companies refuse to disclose, Kaua'i families have no information to protect ourselves from harm.
GMO fields are sprayed every day with multiple pesticides. These pesticides drift into neighboring homes, schools and farms — putting thousands of Kaua'i residents at risk. Research shows that children are particularly susceptible to the harmful effects of these chemicals, which can affect reproductive, endocrine, brain and organ functions.
We have a right to know what pesticides are being used on GMO test fields, for the sake of our children and families.
Sign the petition below and join the campaign! Urge Kaua'i County Councilmembers — JoAnn Yukimura, Jay Furfaro, Mel Rapozo, Nadine Nakamura, Tim Bynum, Ross Kagawa and Gary Hooser — to support protecting Kaua'i families from repeated exposure to hazardous pesticides.
