E-Mail from R. M. Concerning
ALABAMA GRANDMOTHERS ARRESTED FOR CAMPAIGNING AGAINST GENETICALLY ENGINEERED FOODS

Dear Gerry,

CONGRATULATIONS!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SPEAKING OUT.

THIS IS WONDERFUL.  IT REALLY MATTERS, ESPECIALLY THAT YOU GOT ARRESTED.

GOOD FOR YOU!!!

NO ONE CARES IF SOMEONE MY AGE SPEAKS OUT AND GETS ARRESTED.

THEY FIGURE WE ARE HOTHEADS. BUT YOU... THANK YOU SO MUCH... IT REALLY MATTERS. THAT YOU AND MRS. TUNE DID THIS AND GOT TAKEN AWAY (ITS KIND OF A JOKE ISN'T IT!) IT MEANS MORE THAN 10 OR 20 OR 100 PEOPLE IN THEIR TEENS, 20S AND 30S.

SO THANKS AGAIN AND KEEP US INFORMED OF WHAT IS GOING ON.

OH, MY WIFE AND I LEFT NY LAST YEAR AND ARE LIVING IN EUGENE, OR FOR THE MOMENT. WE ARE HOPING THAT MEASURE 27 PASSES.

THERE IS A LOT OF SUPPORT FOR IT. THE INDUSTRY IS PUMPING IN MILLIONS AGAINST LABELING, BUT IT IS IN ALL THE PAPERS JUST HOW SCARED THEY ARE. AND THE QUESTION IS ALSO OUT THERE, "WHAT HAVE THEY GOT TO HIDE. IF GE FOODS ARE OK?

WHAT DO THEY CARE IF IT IS LABELED?. RATHER THEY SHOULD BE PROUD TO HAVE THEM LABELED."

AGAIN, THANK YOU AND PLEASE TELL MRS. TUNE THE SAME.

WISHING YOU PEACE AND JOY,

R. M.

POSTSCRIPT: Unfortunately, Monsanto won this round and Oregon lost out. Perhaps Alabama can take up where Oregon left off and lead the way by initiating mandatory labeling on ALL G.E. foods
