GMO labeling initiative 522 seems to have failed, proving once again that corporate money can buy food secrecy
‘As of this writing, Washington state I-522 looks to have narrowly failed at the ballot box. This link shows election results county by county.
At 11:00pm last night, the “no” votes were winning by approximately 55% to 44%. Mail-in votes reportedly have not been counted yet, but unless a radical change appears in the final votes, I-522 will go down in history as yet another example of corporate money buying out the voters through a campaign of lies and deception.
The Grocery Manufacturers of America and most of the big-name food companies proved in this campaign that they are willing to operate a criminal conspiracy to cheat, lie and intentionally misinform voters. At stake is their continued way of doing business: SECRECY coupled with consumer ignorance.’
