Many thanks to each of you for the inspiration of today’s call!
Barbara’s approach in developing curriculum is brilliant. 

 As a school librarian, exposure to Monsanto -funded curriculum “Field of Genes” is what first galvanized me into this movement.  I agree with Barbara and Shiv that reaching children with information about the real risks of GMO’s while nurturing a love for growing real food for everyone is vital.

Deeply encouraged to be reminded by our Iraqi colleague, Naqid Khamis, of the innate wisdom and steadfastness that continues from earliest times in Mesopotamia.   It is both  an honor and humbling to network with you all in this effort.

In Hawaii since we have been (U.S. occupied as well,) exploited as the world center for field research on GMO seed varieties, we are ready to participate in international efforts to educate and resist and transform the influence of the Biotech/GMO industry.

Thank you, Wafaa’, for bringing our beautiful planet and us the hope, the promise and the imperative to act, that is Seed Day!  I have found as I mentioned that the more we can focus on good food, peace and sovereignty the more successful our outreach and collaboration will be.

New Video

We have just posted a new, four-minute video on YouTube to promote “Sustainable Development or Sustainable Freedom.”  Please take a look and then send the link to your mail lists.  We really need to get this into the hands of every elected official, and every candidate this month.  Please do what you can to help.

Critical Senate vote

On June 10, the Senate will vote on SJ Res. 26, a Joint-Resolution to disapprove the EPA Rule that would allow the EPA to regulate carbon dioxide as a pollutant.   Carbon dioxide occurs naturally throughout the environment, and is what mammals exhale.  It is not a pollutant!  If the EPA is allowed to define it as a pollutant and regulate it in the atmosphere, then the EPA has a license to regulate life itself.

This is what the resolution says:

“Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That Congress disapproves the rule submitted by the Environmental Protection Agency relating to the endangerment finding and the cause or contribute findings for greenhouse gases under section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act (published at 74 Fed. Reg. 66496 (December 15, 2009)), and such rule shall have no force or effect.”

Please contact your Senators and urge them to adopt this critical resolution.
