Today, 11/4/2014, the citizens of Maui County passed the very first Citizen's Initiative to make its way onto a ballot. The bill places a Moratorium on the Cultivation of Genetically Engineered Organisms until they can be proven safe. A reasonable request rooted in the Precautionary Principle.
Despite the $8,000,000 well-oiled propaganda machine, Maui County voters prevailed. Democracy in action. We made history. We are setting a precedent. It's only the beginning, we know that.
But what a beginning it is.
