Other major corporations including Dow, Bayer and Dupont have made large contributions to the No on I-522 campaign as well as the Grocery Manufacturers Association, which represents noted anti-labeling companies such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Kraft and General Mills.
Even with the labeling opposition bringing in over $11 million as of this week, the difference between who is funding each campaign is quite telling. While those against labeling have brought in much more than the Yes on I-522′s $3.1 million, nearly $1 million of which came from Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, small-time contributions from dedicated anti-GMO activists have added up to almost $73,000. Small-time contributions to defeat the labeling initiative? A mere $25.
While the opposition is almost completely made up of major corporations with noted criminal histories such as Bayer, who knowingly sold AIDS-infected medicine in Europe and Asia, Yes on 522′s contributors represent countless groups including Dr. Mercola, PCC Natural Markets, Amy’s Kitchen, Cliff Bar and the Center for Food Safety.
