According to the latest campaign finance reports, Monsanto has just contributed $4.2 million in opposition of Proposition 37 for GMO labeling in California, which comes up for voting in the November elections.
Proposition 37 has become an epic food fight pitting the big pesticide and junk food companies against the millions of consumers who want to know if their food is genetically engineered.
The latest huge donation is from Monsanto Co. in the sum of $4.2 million, which is the largest individual contribution so far.
Total contributions to defeat Proposition 37 amount to $25 million, with nearly $23 million of that during the last week.
Other major new contributions against Proposition 37 were given by E. I. Dupont de Nemours ($1,273,600), Dow Agrosciences ($1,184,800) and PepsiCo ($1,126,079).
So far, the “Big 6” pesticide companies (Monsanto, Dow, BASF, Bayer, Syngenta and DuPont) have contributed $13.5 million to defeat Proposition 37.
Looking at the twenty largest contributors to the "No on 37" campaign, only one company is actually based in California - Nestlé USA. And Nestlé USA is a subsidiary of the giant Swiss food conglomerate Nestlé S.A.
ONE HAS TO ASK WHAT ALL THESE COMPANIES ARE TRYING SO HARD TO HIDE FROM US.
