Oregon fighting back. They want to know exactly where the GMO fields are.
Oregon’s Governor Kitzhaber is hoping that Oregon will be the first state to map GMO crop field locations and establish buffer zones to reduce the risk of genetic contamination. “Mapping would bring transparency to a system that’s extremely opaque,” George Kimbrell, an attorney for the Center for Food Safety, told The Associated Press. “It would allow for causation and traceability.” As you would expect, Syngenta, et al, are not real happy about this. Syngenta has stated that mapping does not fit their business model. Of course we know they do not support transparency and accountability. What else are they afraid of? It seems they are worried that if the location of their GMO crops became public information, mapping could lead to crop sabotage.
