    美国时间 2012年10月25日 (星期五) 离美国加州公众参与转基因标识法案投票还剩12天,公众与转基因种子公司的“民主博弈”在势力上有了一些变化:
    对于发起转基因标识法案投票的一方坏消息:孟山都和杜邦这些天每天花100万做广告,已经见效: 10月24日《洛杉矶时报》的民意调查显示:支持转基因标识法案和反对的人数比例是:44% 比 42%。好消息: 孟山都继续宣传一惯的观点,影响民众认知,尽管GMO一方还有2%落后。
    而到目前为止,发起转基因标识法案投票的“支持转基因标识”的广告还没开始打出来呢 ----- 因为钱少,总共才500万, 所以要从美国时间10月25日起才开始正式打广告,据说发起转基因标识法案投票这次与孟山都PK,只能把冲刺留在最后,因为老百姓临近投票前印象比较深。
     孟山都的宣传,令公众对标识法案的投票支持率从:62% ----》48% ------> 44%   , 不过发起转基因标识法案投票的广告宣传要美国时间10月25日才开始。值得注意的是:孟山都等转基因生物公司动用了4千万美元广告费,美化GMO, 历时40天,即:每天烧掉100万美元。 而发起转基因标识法案投票这方只有500万美金,选择在投票前最后12天才做广告,但目前民意还是领先。

    12 Days to Stop Monsanto - Join Us for the Food Fight of the Century to Label GMOs!
Yesterday I was honored to stand with mothers, farmers and everyday Californians in front of the Los Angeles City Council to ask for their support for Prop 37 to label GMOs. Incredibly, the LA City Council unanimously passed a resolution to endorse Prop 37, the historic initiative that would give Californians the right to label genetically engineered food. It felt great to win their support!
As the co-chair of the California Right to Know campaign, I was the last person to speak, and I wanted to make one thing clear: the issue of labeling genetically engineered foods is about two things - food and democracy - and in America both are at risk.
We have a right to know what's in our food and no one has the right to corrupt our basic democratic rights, no matter how much money they have.
But right now that's exactly what's happening in California. In the past several weeks Monsanto and DuPont have been running deceptive and misleading ads about Prop 37 to confuse California voters. The bad news is that it's working! Today a poll came out in the Los Angeles Times that puts Yes on 37 slightly ahead at 44% to 42%.
The good news is that Monsanto and their pesticide and junk food coalition have thrown all the lies they can at the Yes on 37 campaign to label GMOs and we're still ahead - and we haven't even started running our TV ads, which start tomorrow, right now we need your help more than ever to get them on the air in as many locations across the state as possible.
This is a historic battle and right now we are in a fight to the finish with only 12 days left.
Heroes and Zeroes of Yes on 37
Last week we put out a Heroes and Zeroes Scorecard on Yes on 37 to let you know exactly who we were up against, and who has your back in this battle.
The other side has raised over $40 million dollars to defeat the labeling of genetically engineered foods in California.
Monsanto alone has put in $7.1 million dollars. DuPont, $4.9 million against California's mothers, children and farmers. The real question is: What do they have to hide? The same companies that are fighting our Right to Know on Prop 37 already label their genetically engineered foods in 61 other countries around the world. Now they say they can't comply in California?
Right now it's close, but Monsanto is running scared and together we can stop them!
The opposition knows one thing - that lying and deception works. After all, they did it for decades, whether it was covering up the harm to human health of cigarettes, Agent Orange or DDT.
This fall, Californians will go to the ballot box to vote on one of the single most important issues of our time – whether or not we have a Right to Know what’s in our food or if corporations have control over our basic democratic rights.
This fight is an epic battle of the People vs. the multinational Corporations, as you will see below. Thousands of individuals have contributed to this campaign, and with your help, Food Democracy Action! has contributed $75,000. Thank you to all those that donated! But we can't stop there. We won't meet their measure in funds, and we don't need to. But we do need to get our ads on the air to combat their lies and deception. It’s for the heart and soul of America and we need your help today.
