After GMO Labeling Shot Down, Citizens Start Labeling Products Themselves

Anthony Gucciardi

Activists and concerned citizens around the world have had enough with corrupt corporations censoring their right to know what’s in their food, and frankly they’re beyond upset. And if the government will not side with the 90 plus percentage of consumers who are in favor of GMO labeling, then they’re going to do it themselves.

As it turns out, many are doing just that through the ‘DIY’ GMO labeling campaign known as ‘The Label It Yourself Campaign’. Sporting a skull with cornstalks for crossbones, the DIY labels inform customers as to whether or not a product ‘may’ include GMO ingredients or most certainly does.

Below is one label taken from the campaign website that activists are now placing on products found in grocery stores, homes of friends and family (to incite discussion), and just about everywhere else:


People Will Not Stand for Corporate Food Lies Any Longer

With 80% or more of many staple crops like corn and soybeans already genetically modified, there is a large chance that most products containing these ingredients (or deriviatives) does indeed contain GMOs. Even more so for highly processed high-fructose corn syrup and other harmful ingredients which are arguably modified 100% of the time. You can print out the labels from the campaign website and stick them on products for yourself.


With a lack of real GMO labeling thanks to dirty tricks by pro-GMO groups like No on 37, grassroots initiatives are the only methods of alerting the public to what they are putting into their mouths. Pro-GMO campaigns have impersonated and illegally used the FDA seal, posed as phony cop and democrat groups, and poured more than $45 million into keeping consumers into the dark.Now, citizens are fighting back through peaceful grassroots initiatives. As a picture from one Treehugger blog shows, consumers are honestly labeling processed foods across the shelves of international grocers:


As for the legal aspect? The Label It Yourself Campaign states:
At the moment, the law protects misinformation and private property above truth-telling, and public well-being…
Meanwhile, corporations like Monsanto continue to pump out GMOs that have been time and time again linked to disease, environmental disaster, and even the center of ‘slave labor‘ issues. When government legislation is shot down through corruption, it becomes a grassroots responsibility to take action and make a real change.

This is a violation of the Product Tampering Law and is punishable by imprisonment!

Awesome, but I'm sure they will find a way to start punishing people for labeling on their own.

The best way is to have companies that don't use GMO's to label their products with the NON-GMO product label. I will only buy foods now with those labels. Not much of a choice right now, but at least I know whats going into my body!

Ya know what Ms. person who said something about the tampering law.....,.THEY have tampered wiht OUR food. None of this is ethical, moral or Gody. The Constitution of the US was written to reflect the laws of God as we know them -- and this has been all but expunged. Don't you think it is time to take back what has been stolen from us folks!! Stand up and be counted as having some guts!

In the third last paragraph the author of this great article has a paragraph on some of the dirty tricks used by GMO corporations to win the referendum for Prop 37. He omits to mention the possibility of "vote rigging " ? But this could very well prove to be the greatest " dirty trick " of all .

The best revenge is to buy local and to grow what you can on your own.

GMOs - organic - non-organic ,,,,,, what about CHEMTRAILS? (what goes up must come down) so doesn't that make everything a poison, regardless? What about that- showering down upon a nice organic field of crops?

I live in CA and found that everyone I talked to voted against Prop 37. They felt it would be confusing that many foods were to be exempt from labeling under 37. This would mean not having a label wouldn't mean it was really GMO free. If people REALLY want non-GMO food, manufacturers should see producing non-GMO food as preferable and label their products GMO free. Then a consumer would know for sure.

I've read that 90% of US corn is GMO. It has made me sad, but I've stopped eating corn. That includes most mexican foods and tortilla chips, which I used to really enjoy... I feel violated that that whole food source has been made contaminated and offlimits to me!!
