The fight over GMOs here on Kaua’i is far from over and both sides of the issue are digging in their heals. As Bill 2491 (Relating to Pesticides and Genetically Modified Organisms) continues to be discussed by the Kauai County Council, leaders both for and against the bill are planning their next steps.
On the PASS THE BILL side, another event has been scheduled for next weekend.
Sunday, September 8th, 2013
“We will be gathering at the Vidinha Stadium in Lihue for an 11:30 pule and a 12:00 start. The March will start from the stadium and precede down Hoolako St turning right at Ace Hardware onto Rice St. As we were during the Poipu march, we will be escorted by the Kaua’i Police Department through Rice St. to the Council Chambers where we will rally in support of Bill 2491 being PASSED into LAW!”
