This Hawaii County resolution won't pass UNLESS A LOT OF PEOPLE SHOW UP!!!

The Hawaii County Council will be deciding on Wednesday December 17th at 9am, West Hawai`i Civic Center - whether or not to appeal the ruling overturning our GMO Ordinance 13-121, which protected Hawaii Island from any new propagation of genetically engineered seed or open air testing.

Resolution 22-14 will support our appeal of tJudge Kurren's ruling invalidating our GMO bill 13-121. This appeal is critical in getting this case heard by a higher court.

The Hawaii Center for Food Safety has started an online petition asking the Hawaii County Council to SUPPORT a motion to APPEAL. Please sign petition and forward/share.
