Check out LabelGMOs.org to learn more about grassroots advocacy of GMO labeling
(NaturalNews) Online activism against GMO's just got a bit easier thanks to a new website, LabelGMOs.org (http://www.labelgmos.org). The website grew out of a California grassroots campaign seeking to have that state require labeling on GMO's. In addition to giving people an easy way to support the fight against Frankenfoods, the site also offers educational information and links.
People who want to support the California campaign can sign up on the site to volunteer, offering services such as signature gathering, graphic design, fundraising, web development, accounting, and education and outreach. You can also make a donation or spread the word to your circle of friends by posting a link to the site on your Facebook or Twitter account. Downloadable banners for your Facebook page, blog or website are also available, as are printable posters. Aspiring food activists can locate educational events in their area or sign up to host an event so your friends and neighbors can learn about the importance of labeling GMO's.
If you want to learn about more GMO labeling, the website provides background on the issue, including the health dangers of genetically engineered foods and the way other countries around the globe are handling this issue. LabelGMOs.org offers a valuable list for further educational resources; including films, books and scientific papers which reveal the truth about Frankenfoods that Big Food doesn't want consumers to know.
To learn precisely what the California campaign is about, the site enables you to download the full text of the proposed California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act of 2012 . If you want a more playful way of thinking about GMO's, the website has a link which takes you to a downloadable IPad or IPhone animated game called GMO Busters.
Whether you live in California and want to learn more about the campaign, or if you live elsewhere in the US and want to garner information to help you start your own GMO labeling campaign, this website is well worth a visit for anyone who cares about keeping Frankenfoods out of the country's food supply. After you read up on the campaign, be sure also to visit http://justlabelit.org/takeaction and sign the petition supporting the California initiative.
