Monsanto and gang, coming soon to your backyard!

When the handful of corporations set on owning, controlling and über-profiting from our common seed heritage — Monsanto, Syngenta, DuPont, Dow, BASF and Bayer — began experimenting with their proprietary chemicals and genetically engineered crops in Hawaii in the 1990s, barely a peep was made. Two decades later, we can’t even convince our Hawaii state government to pass a law mandating that these companies release basic information about the pesticides they spray next to primary schools.…

Hi Andrea,

I see you were looking to obtain raw milk a while ago. Have you had any luck? If not, I may be able to help. Give me a call on 846 3327, you can catch me most evenings, or if not, leave me a message, I'll get back to you. 

Cheers,

Helen

Hey Andrea-

I read your piece on Common Dreams, did a bit of cyber sleuthing, and voila!  Writing form Eugene, Oregon, USA.  I am a climate change activist and am putting together a campaign to raise awareness to 'pierce through the fog' that you wrote about.  I am on the lookout for folks of similar outlook with whom to network and so am reaching out.  If you would like I'd love your take on my project.  New to Ooooby- I am assuming that we can communicate here a la Facebook and my personal email is dagold56@hotmail.com as well.  Peace. David

Aloha Andrea, I want to grow that movement too. 'Collective action for  a collective world' reminds me of an indigenous proverb:

Nā tō rourou, nā taku rourou
ka ora ai te iwi
With your food basket and my food basket
the people will thrive
