oregonThe full scheduled voting on a state-wide ballot for Measure 92 in Oregon to label GMO foods won’t come in until November 4th, but voting has begun, and we’re winning!

The measure would ensure that the labeling of genetically modified foods was mandatory, and that Big Food corporations along with Big Chemical like Monsanto and Dow wouldn’t be able to label foods ‘if they felt like it’ as the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association has suggested we consumers allow.


Since when can you trust Monsanto and Coca-Cola to tell the truth about anything they create? Mandatory labeling is the only way for complete transparency of our food supply to transpire, and we deserve to know what is in our food! Voluntary GMO labeling is essentially what we have now, and doesn’t really work to let consumers fully know the truth regarding food ingredients.

Measure 92, the full text of which can be found here, is all about keeping the right to know with consumers, and not further selling out to biotech bullies and seed monopolies. It goes against giving corporations the same rights as people, while they poison the planet and take absolutely no accountability for those actions.

Monsanto has just dropped another $2.5 million (in addition to what they’ve already spent) to defeat GMO labeling in Oregon – bringing the total to $4.5 million in just one state. They also dropped another cool million in Colorado – bringing the total to about $5 million in that state – all to keep voters from checking that YES LABEL GMOs box at the voting booths or on their ballots. What exactly are these companies trying to hide from U.S. consumers?

You can support this measure further by staying in touch with Oregon Right to Know on Facebook and watching this short video and passing it along. If you live in Oregon, I would post the opening page everywhere you can think of – how about your local Starbucks or GMO-selling grocery store!? We haven’t stood down to Monsanto’s bullying yet, and we can’t start now.

Let’s bring these toxic-making criminals to their knees. Vote Yes on 92 Oregon. We’re behind you 100%.
