The Tragedy and Conflict in Hawaii: Super-Toxic Pesticides Sprayed Near Schools and Hospitals

How would you feel if super-toxic pesticides, including chlorpyrifos, which studies have linked to neurological effects in children, were sprayed very close to schools and hospitals in your community?

My guess is that you wouldn’t be too happy. Maybe “irate” is the correct word.

Well, this is exactly what is happening in Hawaii as major chemical/seed companies complete all of their GMO experiments on this once-pristine island.

A massive conflict has since arisen between island residents, who want an end to these GMOs and toxic pesticides, and companies such as Monsanto, who are funding these tests.

In this video, you’ll get a good idea of exactly what is going on in Hawaii and the challenges that its citizens are facing on a daily basis.

Unfortunately, Hawaii is not an isolated case. Atrocities such as this are happening all over the world as pesticides are being sprayed with reckless abandon, sickening farm workers and polluting our water supply.

If this infuriates you, please get involved and help put a stop to this madness.

Thank you for your concern.
