Election night in Jackson County Oregon. One County measure 15-119 was a measure to ban the growing of GMO crops in Jackson County. We were outspent by Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer and DuPont by more than three to one. An amazing grassroots effort by citizens going door-to-door and phone banking was very successfull. Despite constant negative ads on local stations our measure passed by more than two to one. GMO crops will be banned in Jackson County, Oregon. I worked on the campaign and wrote a diary about it recently. Here is a link:http://www.dailykos.com/...
I am so happy!!!!!
Citizens with much less money beat a huge effort by multinational chemical companies. People beat big money when we do it smart and work hard.
