Previous (7/27) GMO Campaign meeting notes

Next GMO Campaign Meeting: Monday, October 26 at 7PM
It would take 5% of US consumers asking for GMO-free to be the tipping point.
Monsanto's stock is declining. A clear sign of this occurred when the president of Whole Foods confessed that when a product becomes verified as Non-GMO or GMO-free, sales leap by 15-30 percent. Of all the categories of health and wellness claims, such as “gluten-free,” etc, “GMO-free” products have the most rapid growth in sales.
We can win this! Together we can stop GMOs.
Occupy Sonoma County embraces the egalitarian, deep democracy principles of the Occupy Movement with a regional strategy for effectively organizing county-wide social justice campaigns that are globally relevant.
