> Friends,
>
> There will be a Hilo Area Hawaii Seed / GMO Meeting on Tuesday
> Evening, September 11th at 7 p.m. at the Kahuina Gallery. (The
> Gallery is located on the corner of Mamo and Kilauea in downtown Hilo.)
>
> This will be an organizational and strategy meeting for those
> interested in working on the GMO issue this Fall and Winter. We
> will be focusing on Taro and the risks posed by Genetic Engineering.
> Taro is both a staple food crop and a significant part of Hawaiian
> culture.
>
> Right now there is a great need for public education and activation
> on the issues around Genetic Engineering and Taro. In 2008 the
> Hawaii Legislature will consider Senate Bill 958 which, if passed,
> would put a 10 year moratorium on planting, field trials, and
> laboratory experimentation of GMO Taro.
>
> As you can see 2007 is an important time for all of us concerned
> about GMOs,Genetic Engineering, and Taro. Therefore, I hope you will
> be able to join us this Tuesday at Kahuina Gallery as we discuss the
> future of GMOs on the Big Island and what we can do about it.
>
> Peace,
