Target: Chair of Hawaii State Senate Committee on Agriculture, Clarence K. Nishihara
Goal: Implement strict regulations on GMO experimenting in Hawaii
For years, the Hawaii State Legislature has been putting the interests of GMO corporations above those of the public. GMO corporations such as Monsanto, Syngenta and Pioneer have been using Hawaiian lands to conduct dangerous and potentially harmful experiments. During these experiments, toxic chemicals found within the herbicides and pesticides are being released into waterways and are contaminating the environment.
These actions are putting the health of many communities at high risk for sickness and cancer. GMO corporations currently do not disclose any information about these toxic chemicals to the public and are leaving many citizens in the dark about what they are potentially being exposed to. It is not right for these corporations to harm the citizens of Hawaii without their consent.
Implementing strict regulations for GMO experiments will greatly reduce the risk imposed on the public. The Hawaii State Legislature needs to provide regulations and limits for these corporations in order to prevent them from conducting these experiments in areas that will affect nearby communities. Also, the state needs to set forth regulations that force corporations to release information about the chemicals they are using.
It is not right to allow large corporations to do as they please while potentially harming the residents of Hawaii. Please sign the petition below to urge lawmakers to better regulate these corporations.
Dear Senator Nishihara,
In order to protect the residents of Hawaii from being exposed to toxic chemicals produced by GMO experimenting, strict regulations need to be implemented immediately. These chemicals are highly dangerous to the citizens of Hawaii, as they can cause cancer and other serious illnesses. The people of Hawaii should not be put in harms way for the benefit of large GMO corporations.
GMO corporations should not keep residents in the dark about what they are being exposed to. Force these corporations to disclose all necessary information about the chemicals used to the public. Also, strict regulations on the locations of experiments should be implemented in order to ensure the safety of the environment and the health of Hawaii residents.
Please take immediate action and consider the health concerns of Hawaii residents.
