ʻO US Right to Know, kahi hui hoʻolaha hoʻolaha mea kūʻai, ua faila i kahi pekelala hoʻokolokolo ma ka Pōʻahā e kūʻē ana i ka Agency Protection Environmental Agency no ka ʻaihue ʻana i nā mea o ka Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). ʻO Public Citizen Litigation Group, kahi loio loio lehulehu e pili ana i Wakinekona, DC, ke kū nei i ka pono o US e ʻike i ka hana.

ka hoʻokolokolo, i waiho ʻia i loko o ka ʻĀpana ʻAmelika ma Wakinekona, DC, e ʻimi nei nā palapala e pili ana i ka loiloi ʻana o EPA i kahi kemikopa hakakā i kapa ʻia glyphosate. ʻO Glyphosate ka mea kanu lāʻau make i hoʻohana nui ʻia i ka honua a ʻo ia ka mea nui i ka Monsanto Co.'s Roundup herbicides a me nā huahana hoʻomake nāhelehele. Ua ulu aʻe nā hopohopo e pili ana i ka kemika mai ka World Health Organization i 2015 i ʻōlelo ʻia e nā loea maʻi ʻaʻai he glyphosate ma ke ʻano he kino kanaka make paha. Ua ʻōlelo pū kekahi nā ʻepekema ʻē aʻe e hōʻike ana ka noiʻi i nā pilikia palekana me nā kemika a me nā formulated i hoʻohana ʻia i.

Ua noi ʻo US Right to Know i nā moʻolelo EPA ma hope o ka hoʻouna ʻana o ka EPA i kahi memo kūloko i kapa ʻia ʻo “GLYPHOSATE: Hōʻike a ke Kōmike loiloi i ka maʻi ʻaʻai”I ka pūnaewele o ka ʻoihana ma ka lā 29 ʻApelila 2016. ʻO ka hōʻike EPA kūloko, i ʻike ʻia ma ke ʻano he hōʻike ʻo CARC, ua hoʻoholo ʻo glyphosate" ʻaʻole ia he carcinogenic i nā kānaka. " ʻO ka EPA a laila holoi i ka hoʻolaha lehulehu ma Mei 2, e ʻōlelo ana ua kau ʻia ka palapala me ka manaʻo ʻole. Akā ma mua o ka holoi ʻia ua kope nā luna o Monsanto i ka palapala, paipai ʻia ma ka pūnaewele pūnaewele a me nā pāpili kaiaulu a kuhikuhi iā ia i loko o ka ʻaha hoʻokolokolo e pili ana i nā hoʻopiʻi i hoʻopiʻi ʻia e nā limahana mahiʻai a me nā poʻe ʻē aʻe e ʻōlelo nei ua hāʻawi ka lāʻau make a Monsanto iā lākou i ka maʻi ʻaʻai.

Ua noi ka noi ʻo FOIA o Mei 12, no kekahi mau moʻolelo e pili ana i ka hōʻike CARC e pili ana i ka glyphosate a me nā moʻolelo o nā kamaʻilio ma waena o Monsanto a me nā luna o ka EPA i kūkākūkā i nā pilikia glyphosate. Ma lalo o FOIA, he 2016 mau lā hana o ka EPA e pane ai i ka noi, akā ʻoi aku ma mua o 20 mau lā hana i hala i kēia manawa a ʻaʻole i hana ka EPA i nā moʻolelo i pane i ka noi. Ua hoʻokō ʻole ka EPA i ka like me nā noi FOIA hou loa i hana ʻia e US Right to Know no ka palapala o ka hana EPA me Monsanto e pili ana i ka glyphosate, ʻoiai ʻaʻole kēlā mau noi i ʻāpana o kēia hoʻopiʻi.

Ua ʻōlelo kikoʻī ka hoʻopiʻi ʻana he kuleana kuleana ko US Right to Know ma lalo o FOIA i nā moʻolelo i noi ʻia a ʻaʻohe kumu kū kānāwai o ka EPA no ka hōʻole ʻana e hana i kēia mau moʻolelo. Nīnau ka hoʻopiʻi i ka ʻaha e kauoha iā EPA e hōʻike koke i nā moʻolelo i noi ʻia.
