Public meeting about Bill 79 and GMOs


Featuring: Hawaii County Councilmember Margaret Wille and CTAHR Professor of Tropical Organic Agriculture Hector Valenzuela

Time: 7-9pm, June 24th  Place: UH Hilo, room STB 108

Free and open to the public

Following a short film about Genetically Modified Organisms growing in Hawaii, Dr. Valenzuela will give a presentation around the effects of GMOs in Hawaii, and to other parts of the world. Council member Margaret Wille will be discussing the bill she introduced to the County Council that would prohibit any further introductions of GMO crops on Hawaii Island, called Bill 79.

GMO Free Hawaii Island will be presenting the work they are doing to spread the word about Bill 79 to the community, and will be reporting on actions they are working on with regards to the GMO issue. There will be question and discussion time after both of the presenters, so you can learn more and share your views about the GMO issue.
