Eia nā laʻana o ka lobbying i hoʻopili ʻia i ka ʻoihana a me nā hana pili i ka lehulehu e pili ana iā Biofortified a me kāna mau alakaʻi.

Pale aku ka poʻe ʻōpio "Biofortified" i nā pesticides

I ka makahiki 2013, ʻo ka Hui Hoʻonui ʻIa o Hawaiʻi Crop (HCIA) - kahi hui kālepa ʻeleu Ua hoʻolālā ʻo DowDuPont, Monsanto a me nā Hartung Brothers - i kahi huakaʻi ʻoluʻolu i Kauai no nā mea kōkua ʻoihana e kūʻē i kahi ʻaha kaiāulu e hoʻomaikaʻi ai. hōʻikeʻike lehulehu o ka hoʻohana pesticide a koi ʻia i nā ʻāpana buffer pesticide a puni nā kula, nā haukapila a me nā wahi lehulehu. Wahi a nā leka uila i loaʻa e US Right to Know, ua kuhikuhi aku ka luna hoʻomalu o ka HCIA i nā mea kākoʻo ʻehā i kono ʻia i ka huakaʻi hele e like me ke keikikāne "Biofortified." ʻO lākou:

Hōʻike nā leka uila ʻo Renee Kester, ka mea alakaʻi i ka papahana lobby HCIA, i leka uila i nā kāne ʻehā ma Iulai 11, 2013 (ʻaoʻao 10) e hoʻomaikaʻi aku iā lākou "no nā kākoʻo āu i hāʻawi mai ai iā mākou ma aneʻi ma Hawaii e pili ana i kā mākou kaua kaua ʻahaʻōlelo hou" a e hoʻonohonoho i kahi kāhea e kūkākūkā i kā lākou loaʻa e hele i kahi hālāwai hoʻolohe kānāwai. ʻO Alicia Muluafiti, ka luna hoʻokō o HCIA, a laila leka uila i ka hui (palapala 9) e pili ana i ka pono o ka hoʻolālā ʻana i nā hoʻolālā pōkole a me nā wā lōʻihi “e hoʻohana ana i nā keiki kāne Biofortified”:

More 'ikepili:

  • New York Times, "Hana pū kahi polofesa Florida me ka ʻOihana Biotech: He huakaʻi i Hawaii e hōʻike ai, uku ʻia e ka ʻoihana" (ʻaoʻao 23) (9/5/2015)
  • Nānā GM, "Pehea ka pale ʻana o ke Keikikāne Biofortified 'i nā mea huna a nā ʻoihana pesticide ma Hawaii" (9/27/2015)

Palapala ʻia ʻo Biofortified ma ke ʻano he "hoa hana" ma Monsanto PR doc  

keia palapala Monsanto kūloko ʻike iā Biofortified ma ke ʻano he "hoa hana" ma ka hoʻolālā pili lehulehu o Monsanto e hōʻino i ka ʻimi noiʻi maʻi ʻaʻai o ka World Health Organization, ʻo ka International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), e pale aku i ka inoa o Roundup weedkiller. I Malaki 2015, ua hoʻokolokolo kahi ʻaoʻao loea IARC i ka glyphosate, ka mea nui i Roundup, e lilo carcinogenic paha i nā kānaka.

Ua ʻike ʻia ka palapala PR Monsanto PR ʻehā papa o nā hoa hana ua hoʻolālā ka ʻoihana e komo i kāna "papa hoʻomākaukau" no ka IARC cancer report. Ua helu ʻia ʻo Biofortified ma “Tier 2,” me Nānā Hou ʻO AgBioChatter kālaiʻike, Hoʻopuka Haʻawina Genetic a ʻIke e pili ana i ka ʻepekema. Kuhi pinepine ʻia kēia mau pūʻulu ma ke ʻano he kumuwaiwai kūʻokoʻa, akā e like me ka manaʻo a ka Monsanto plan a me nā hiʻohiʻona ʻē aʻe, hana lākou ma hope o nā hanana me ka ʻoihana mahiʻai e pale i nā pono ʻoihana. (Hoʻohou: Ma ʻOkakopa 2018, Biofortified kau ʻia a olelo mai Monsanto e ʻōlelo nei ʻaʻole kālā a hui pū paha ka ʻoihana me lākou.)

Kūpono ka transparency a me ka mokuʻāina FOIA i nā noi

Kākoʻo ʻia ʻo Biofortified, me ka Cornell Alliance no ʻEpekema, he Palapala noi no Malaki 2015 ke kūʻē nei i ka hoʻohana ʻana o ka State Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) i nā noi e nānā i nā loulou ma waena o nā mea ʻimi kālā i hoʻolaha kālā ʻia e ka lehulehu a me ka ʻoihana mahiʻai.

Ua loaʻa nā leka uila i loaʻa iā US Kuleana e ʻike ai ma o kā FOIA mokuʻāina noi mau laʻana he nui o nā kālaiʻike e hana nei i nā ala hūnā me nā ʻoihana ahupuaʻa a me kā lākou ʻoihana PR e kōkua i ka papa hana lobbying a me nā leka uila ʻoihana - e laʻa me ka palapala e wehewehe nei i nā kumu o ka hōʻike mua o ka Academics, a me nā mea i kūkākūkā e pili ana i nā "keiki kāne biofortified" huakaʻi huakaʻi i Hawaii. ʻO ka hapa nui o nā leka uila i loaʻa e US Right to Know i kēia manawa i kau ʻia ma ka UCSF Chemical Industry Documents Library, USRTK Hōʻiliʻili Agrichemical. Ua hoʻokumu nā palapala i ka honua holoʻokoʻa hoʻolaha pūnaewele e pili ana i ka transparency i ka ʻoihana meaʻai a me nā pilikia o ke olakino a me nā kaiapuni o nā pesticides a me GMO.

ʻO nā hoʻouka kaua kūlike a Biofortified i ka poʻe loiloi

ʻO kahi pēpē hū e pani ana i ka palaoa GMO ʻo Frank N. Foode ka mascot o Biofortified.

ʻO ka lālā hoʻokumu hoʻokumu biofortified ʻo David Tribe i hoʻokumu pū ʻia Nānā ʻImi, kahi hui mua i hoʻonohonoho ʻia me ke kōkua o Monsanto e hoʻouka i nā poʻe loiloi ʻoihana, e like me nā palapala i loaʻa e US Right to Know. I hoʻokahi leka uila, ʻO Jay Byrne, kahi luna mua o nā kamaʻilio ʻoihana no Monsanto, ua kūkākūkā i kahi papa inoa o nā loiloi ʻoihana e kūkulu nei no Monsanto.

Malaki e kūʻē nei i nā kaʻao e pili ana i ka Hoʻololi (ʻO MAMyths), kahi papahana o Biofortified, i kuhi ʻia kekahi o nā hui a me nā kānaka i kapa ʻia ma ka papa inoa o Byrne - no ka laʻana, ua komo ka hui i kahi kūʻē iā Vandana Shiva a ua alakaʻi ʻia a hoʻāʻo ʻole e kāpae kahi hanana e hōʻike nei iā Vani Hari, ka "Food Babe," i kākoʻo ʻia e ka Center for Food Safe.

ʻO MAMyths co-hoʻokumu Kavin Senapathy he mau ʻatikala holoi ʻia e Forbes ma hope o ka Hōʻike ʻo New York Times ʻO kāna mea kākau, ʻo Henry Miller, i paʻi i kahi kolamu i Forbes i kākau ʻia e Ghostanto. Ua ʻike ʻia ʻo Miller ma ke ʻano he hoa ma ʻO ka hoʻolālā pili lehulehu o Monsanto e hoʻouka i ka IARC cancer panel.

ʻO Senapathy ka mea kākau inoa o 2015 buke e pili ana iā Hari, "The Fear Babe," e hōʻike nei i mua i kākau ʻia e ka lālā o ka papa Biofortified ʻo Kevin Folta, kahi e wehewehe ai i ka neʻe ʻana o ka meaʻai ma ke ʻano he "pūʻulu hoʻoweliweli maikaʻi".

ʻO Senapathy lāua ʻo Haro von Mogel e ʻike ʻia ma ka Kiʻi paʻi hoʻolaha GMO Hoʻolālā Meaʻai.

Nā hana pili

Hoʻolaha mua no GENERA hoʻopiʻi kuhi hewa e hōʻike iā "ʻoi aku ma mua o 600 nā hōʻike i nānā ʻia e nā hoa ʻepekema i nā palapala ʻepekema e palapala ana i ka palekana āpau a me ke olakino olakino o nā meaʻai GM a me nā hānai." ʻAʻole hōʻike ka hapa nui o kēlā mau noiʻi i nā pilikia palekana. Ua kāpae ʻia ka ʻōlelo hoʻolaha kūpono ʻole, a ma kahi o ka hapakolu o nā haʻawina.

Hoi ike: ʻO Buckraking ma ka Beat Food: I ka manawa hea ka hakakā o ka hoihoi?  
Ua hele aku ʻo Wakinekona Post Columnist Meaʻai i Bat no Monsanto 

Ma Kepakemapa 23, Hawaii Post kolamu meaʻai ʻO Tamar Haspel ʻae ʻia i ka loaʻa ʻana o ka "nui" o ke kālā mai nā kumu waiwai ʻoi aku ka waiwai.

Ma hope o kona ʻae ʻia, ua manaʻo wau he mea pono paha e hōʻike e pili ana i ka poʻe nūpepa - me Haspel - i ʻōlelo ʻia i loko o nā palapala i loaʻa iā mākou mai nā noi palapala aupuni lehulehu.

Ke alakaʻi nei ʻo US Right to Know i kahi ana o ka ʻoihana a me nā ʻoihana mahiʻai, kā lākou mau ʻoihana PR a me nā hui i mua, a me nā polopeka e ʻōlelo nei no lākou.

I kēia manawa, ʻekolu mau mea kūkala nūhou i hele mai i nā ala hoihoi: ʻo Amy Harmon, Keith Kloor a me Tamar Haspel. Hōʻike kēia mau mea kūkala nūhou i ka pōʻaiapili o ʻO Jon Entine, ʻo wai paha ke alakaʻi? Mea hoʻohana PR ke hana nei e hoʻolaha i nā manaʻo o ka ʻoihana mahiʻai, a me kāna pesticides a me GMOs.

ʻO Entine ka mea hoʻokumu a ka luna hoʻokele o ka Genetic Literacy Project, ka mea, me nā PR kūlana Ketchuma's Nā Pane GMO, ʻo ia nā hui mua ʻelua o ka ʻoihana mahiʻai. ʻO Entine ka mea hoʻokumu a pelekikena hoʻi o ka firm PR ESG MediaMetrics, nona ka Ua hoʻokomo nā mea kūʻai aku i ka pilikana Monsanto.

ʻO Amy Harmon

ʻO Amy Harmon he mea haʻi moʻolelo no ka New York Times. He ʻāpana ia o a manawa kime i lanakila i ka Pulitzer Prize ma 2001, a i ka 2008 ua lanakila 'o ia ʻO Pulitzer no ka hōʻike wehewehe ʻana.

Ma Kepakemapa 23, 2013 ma 7:44 pm, Ua leka uila ʻo Jon Entine iā Renee Kester: “FYI, manaʻo wau ua kamaʻilio wau iā Amy Harmon i ka hana ʻana i kahi moʻolelo ʻo Hawaiʻi Hawaii [sic]. . . a ua hāʻawi wau iā ia i kā ʻolua leka uila a me kā Kirby ʻikepili, no laila hiki iā ia ke kāhea i kekahi manawa inā e alualu ʻo ia i kēia. " ʻO Kirby Kester ʻo ia pelekikena o ka ʻAhahui Hoʻonui ʻIa o Hawaiʻi, kahi hui mua o ka ʻoihana mahiʻai.

I Ianuali 4, 2014, ka New York Times paʻi ʻia kahi ʻaoʻao mua e Amy Harmon, i kapa ʻia ʻo “ʻO kahi ʻimi mehameha no nā ʻoiaʻiʻo e pili ana i nā hua i hoʻololi ʻia. ” Ua ʻike ʻia ka moʻolelo mai Kona, Hawaii mai.

I ka 2014, ua lanakila ʻo Harmon i ka lua o ka wahi no ka Society of Environmental Journalists “ʻO ka makana ʻo Kevin Carmody no ka hōʻike ʻana i ka hohonu hohonu, mākeke nui"No"ʻO nā mea e pili ana iā GMO, "Kahi moʻo i hoʻokomo i ka ʻatikala"ʻO kahi ʻimi mehameha no nā ʻoiaʻiʻo e pili ana i nā hua i hoʻololi ʻia. "

On September 30th, Hoʻonohonoho ʻia ʻo Harmon e ʻōlelo i ka ʻO Cornell Alliance no ʻEpekema, he hui i hoʻolako kālā ʻia e ka Pili a me Melinda Gates Foundation e paipai i nā GMO. ʻO ka hui e holo nei i kahi palapala hoʻopiʻi e kūʻē iā US Right to Know Kānāwai Freedom of Information (FOIA) noi.

Keith Kloor

ʻO Keith Kloor kahi mea kākau moʻolelo manuahi nāna i kākau no Nature, ʻ Inslelo Pūnaewele, Mob, Slate a me nā puka ʻē aʻe. Ua kākau ʻo Kloor i nā ʻatikala pro-GMO he nui i hala i hōʻike ʻia e Jon Entine's Genetic Literacy Project.

Ua ʻōlelo ʻia ʻo Kloor i nā wahi ʻelua i nā palapala FOIA.

I hoʻokahi leka uila, kuhikuhi ʻo Jon Entine iā Keith Kloor ma ke ʻano he “hoa aloha maikaʻi loa naʻu".

I kekahi leka uila ʻē aʻe, ma ʻOkakopa 18, 2014, ʻo Kauka Channapatna Prakash, kahi mea kōkua a me ka makua kāne GMO ma ke Kulanui ʻo Tuskegee, leka uila ʻO Adrianne Massey o ka ʻOihana ʻOihana ʻOihana Biotechnology (BIO), me kekahi mau mea ʻē aʻe, e hoʻouna i kahi leka mai ʻO Lorraine Thelian, lunahoomalu hope o ka ʻoihana PR ʻo Ketchum "ke hoʻolālā nei ke kaiāulu hacker Anonymous i kahi papa o ka hoʻouka kaua ʻana ma nā pūnaewele biotechnology a me nā ʻoihana ʻoihana… ʻO nā hui kalepa a me nā pūnaewele ʻoihana o CBI [Council for Biotechnology Information] nā lālā i hoʻokumu ʻia i kēia hoʻouka kaua i hoʻolālā ʻia." Kākau ʻo Kauka Prakash, "Adrianne Ua kope au iā Kevin Folta, Karl von Mogel, David Tribe a me Keith Kloor hoʻi ma aneʻi.. "

Ua hōʻike ʻo Kauka Prakash i ka leka uila iā Jay Byrne (ka luna mua o nā kamaʻilio ʻoihana no Monsanto), Jon Entine, Bruce Chassy (ʻoihana mahiʻai ke kākā'ōlelo) ʻO Val Giddings (ʻo VP mua o BIO), ʻO Henry Miller (mea kākoʻo ʻoihana mahiʻai), Drew Kershen (mea kākoʻo ʻoihana mahiʻai), Klaus Ammann, ʻO Piet van der Meer, Martina Newell-McGloughlin (mea kākoʻo ʻoihana mahiʻai), Karl Haro von Mogel (lālā o ka papa alakaʻi o ʻO Biology i hoʻoikaika ʻia, kahi pūnaewele pro-GMO), Kevin Folta (mahiʻai mea kākoʻo ʻoihana), Keith Kloor lāua ʻo David Tribe (mea kākoʻo ʻoihana mahiʻai).

ʻO Keith Kloor wale nō ka mea kākau moʻolelo i loaʻa i kēia leka uila.

Hōʻike ka leka uila e hana pū ʻo Kloor me nā mea kākoʻo o ka ʻoihana mahiʻai.

Ua kākau ʻo Kloor i ʻekolu mau ʻatikala e kūʻē ana iā US Right to Know's FOIA noi, i loko ʻ Inslelo Pūnaewele, Mob a Nature.

Ma Malaki 23rd, 2015, Ua hāʻawi ʻo Kloor i kahi kamaʻilio no ka Cornell Alliance no ʻEpekema, e hoʻokipa nei a palapala hoʻopiʻi e kūʻē iā US Right to Know's FOIA.

ʻO Tamar Haspel

ʻO Tamar Haspel kahi kolamu ma ka Hawaii Post. Ua kākau ʻo ia i nā kolamu he nui no ka Post ke pale a hoʻomaikaʻi nei paha i nā GMO i hala ma hope i hōʻike ʻia e Jon Entine's Genetic Literacy Project.

I ka 2015, Haspel ua lanakila i ka makana ʻo James Beard Foundation no ia Post kolamu.

I Iune 2014, Haspel 'ōlelo i kahi ʻaha kūkā-ʻoihana e pili ana i “Pehea e hiki ai i nā ʻepekema ke hana maikaʻi i ka hoʻopaʻapaʻa GMO me kahi lehulehu kanalua? ” Ua hui ʻia ka ʻaha kūkā e Jon Entine lāua ʻo Cami Ryan, ka mea i kēia manawa Alakaʻi nā ʻepekema ʻepekema no Monsanto. Ua alakaʻi ʻia ka ʻaha kūkā e nā hui mua ʻoihana mahiʻai, ʻo ka Hoʻopuka Haʻawina Genetic a Nānā ʻImi, me ke Kulanui o Florida, i loaʻa nā kālā nui mai nā ʻoihana ahupuaʻa, e like me kaulana i ka 6 Kepakemapa Haawina i ka New York Times.

Ua hoʻoponopono ʻo Haspel i kahi panel i hoʻonohonohoʻia ma ka Ke kikowaena ʻo Biotechnology North Carolina, "e hāʻawi ana i nā pōmaikaʻi hoʻokele wā lōʻihi a me nā kaiāulu i North Carolina ma o ke kākoʻo ʻana o ka noiʻi biotechnology, ʻoihana, aʻo a me nā kulekele kulekele holoʻokoʻa."

I kahi kamaʻilio Kepakemapa 23 i mālama ʻia e ka Hawaii Post, e pane ana i kahi nīnau e pili ana inā loaʻa kālā iā ia mai nā kumuwaiwai ʻoihana, ua kākau ʻo Ms. Haspel i kēlā, "ʻLelo wau a kaulike i nā panela a me nā hoʻopaʻapaʻa pinepine, a he hana ia e uku ʻia ai wau. ” Ma hope o kēlā lā, ua noi au iā Ms. Haspel ma Twitter i ke kālā i loaʻa iā ia mai ka ʻoihana mahiʻai a me nā hui o mua. Pane maila ʻo ia,ʻOiai ʻo kekahi hui e manaʻoʻiʻo nei i kahi biotech he mea e hāʻawi ai kahi 'mua pūʻulu,' nui!"

Kūpono paha ia no a Hawaii Post kolamu e kākau i nā kolamu ʻālohilohi e pili ana i nā GMO i ka wā e ʻike ʻia ana ma nā ʻaha kūkā ʻoihana kākoʻo? He hakakā paha o ka hoihoi no Haspel e ʻae i ke kālā mai nā makemake o ka ʻoihana mahiʻai e uhi ʻo ia ma ke ʻano he ʻāpana o kāna kuʻi ʻana ma ke ʻano he Post kolamu meaʻai? Ehia mau kālā i loaʻa iā Haspel mai nā pono ʻoihana mahiʻai?

Ua hoʻohewa kekahi mau mea nūpepa i ka poʻe nūpepa no ka "buckraking" ma nā kaapuni haʻiʻōlelo. ʻO kahi laʻana, ma mua Hawaii Post Lunahooponopono Luna 'Benleloʻo Ben Bradlee, "Makemake wau e hele. ʻAʻole wau makemake ia. Manaʻo wau he mea hōʻino ia. Inā ʻo ka Insurance Institute of America, inā aia kekahi mea, uku iā ʻoe i $ 10,000 e hana ai i kahi haʻiʻōlelo, mai haʻi iaʻu ʻaʻole ʻoe i hana ʻino.

Ua kākau ʻo Haspel i ka Hawaii Post e ʻōlelo wale ʻo ia i nā hanana iinā pili nā ʻoihana loaʻa kālā i ka hanana (ʻo ia pinepine lākou), ʻaʻole hiki iā lākou ke leo hoʻokahi. No laila, e kamaʻilio wau ma kahi ʻaha kūkā i kākoʻo pū ʻia e, e, ʻo Monsanto a me ka USDA a me ke Kulanui ʻo NC State, akā ʻaʻole kahi hanana i kākoʻo ʻia e Monsanto wale nō. " Eia nō naʻe, ma ka mahina ʻo Iune 2014, ka hālāwai kūkā a Haspel i ʻōlelo ai, ʻaʻohe mea kākoʻo mea kūʻai aku i hoʻohalahala ʻia e ʻōlelo, ʻo nā mea kākoʻo wale nō i ka ʻoihana kākoʻo.

On ʻOkakopa 16, ua hoʻonohonoho ʻia ʻo Haspel e ʻōlelo i ka ʻO Cornell Alliance no ʻEpekema, kahi hui pro-GMO ia ke hoʻokipa nei i kahi palapala hoʻopiʻi e kūʻē iā US Right to Know's FOIA.

Ua loiloi ʻo Haspel i ka US Right to Know FOIA nā noi. Ma ʻAukake 17, ma Twitter, ua kākau ʻo ia: “Ua hoʻonele ke kālā / manawa / lolo i ka hana ʻino a me ka hoihoi a @ garyruskin ma luna o @kevinfolta! Hiki iā mākou ke neʻe i kahi mea pono?”ʻAʻole ʻae aku nā poʻe ʻē aʻe i kāna hoʻoholo nūhou. Ma Kepakemapa 6th, 'Elua manawa lanakila' o Pulitzer Prize i lanakila 'o Eric Lipton ua kākau i kahi ʻatikala i hoʻokumu nui ʻia i kā mākou FOIA noi - keu hoʻi o ke Kulanui o Florida Polofesa Kevin Folta - i holo i ka ʻaoʻao mua o ka Lāpule New York Times. Ua hōʻike ʻia ka ʻatikala pehea ʻo Folta, ka mea i hōʻole pinepine i nā pilina iā Monsanto, i ka ʻoiaʻiʻo ua loaʻa iā ia kahi $ 25,000 i hōʻike ʻole ʻia, a me nā hana kākau mai ka hui, a hana pū me ia a me kāna ʻoihana PR Ketchum, kahi ʻatikala i kākau nona a hoʻonohonoho i nā media. a me nā hālāwai lobbying nona.

ʻO US Right to Know kahi hui hoʻolaha hoʻolaha mea kūʻai aku. Hoʻāʻo mākou e hōʻike i nā mea makemake ʻole ka ʻoihana meaʻai e ʻike mākou. Manaʻo mākou he mea pono no ka lehulehu e ʻike pehea e hana ai nā ʻoihana meaʻai a me nā ʻoihana mahiʻai i kā lākou mau pilina lehulehu. ʻO ia kahi ala e hiki ai iā mākou ke kōkua i ka poʻe kūʻai e loiloi i nā kuleana a me ka ʻike i loaʻa iā lākou mai nā ʻoihana e pili ana i kā mākou hana meaʻai, kā lākou PR firm a me nā operatives, a me nā mea nūpepa e hana pū ana me lākou.
