Across the Pacific, joining other world locations, GMO advocates and Monsanto, in particular, are asked, "Show us the research!"
The Huffington Post reported the weekend spread of street protests across the United States missing – demonstrating how far the concern is – people living among islands an hour ferry-ride from the Washington State mainland.
Even the Island's children are getting into the act at Friday Harbor, a community of about 4,000 residents.
Happy, playful youngsters join in with adults -- someday to know the research.
This publication carried more than a half dozen reports and additional photos from locations as far away as South Africa and the Hawaiian Islands.
South from the images in this article, and across the wide Pacific, not surprisingly, a Digital Journal reporter out of Sydney focuses on the lack of creditable research, suggesting the industry is avoiding evidence that might hurt sales. In his words, 'A black hole exists.'
No doubt the public voice will become louder and protest spread farther (if a 'farther' still exists) until satisfactory answers are forthcoming from the industry, science laboratories, and political policy makers.
