Whether you love them or hate them, why not label Genetically Modified Organisms? Uncle Walter Ritte, longtime activist from Moloka`i organized an event on February 21st to bring attention to both GMO labeling issues and the fact that none of the bills that would require such labeling will be heard this session. Uncle Walter reminded us all that it is our job to pressure lawmakers to take seriously this issue.

Save O'ahu Farmlands - Protest and March

Save O'ahu Farmlands - Protest and March

Posted by Lauren Muneoka at Feb 17, 2012 03:35 PM |

This Tuesday, Februrary 21, farmers from across O'ahu will send ten farm tractors on flatbed trucks to circle through the city throughout the lunch hour to protest the loss of farmlands. Two large farms that produce 40% of our locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables are under grave threat of urbanization for the Ho'opili and Koa Ridge projects. Others in Wai'anae and Kahuku-Laie are also in great danger. Farmers know that if these lands are lost, no farm is safe. This "Protest of the Farm Tractors," sponsored by Save O'ahu Farmlands Alliance, is to make the public aware of this crisis. On the following Saturday, February 25, the Save O'ahu Farmlands Rally, March, and Farm Festival will take place at Kaka'ako Waterfront Parks, starting with the Rally at 9:00 a.m., and ending at 2:00 p.m.

Monk Seals Should be Saved, Not Shot!

Monk Seals Should be Saved, Not Shot!

Posted by Shelley at Feb 01, 2012 02:55 PM |

The recent killings of Hawaiian monk seals on Kauai and Molokai have highlighted the divide in our community over the role of this endangered animal. There are monk seal enthusiasts who see them as cuddly cuties on one end and monk seal haters who are killing them on the other extreme. I'd like to think most people are somewhere in the middle (but hopefully not apathetic). I think it's undeniable that seals are nuisances to fishermen, and no doubt they can be aggressive--but that doesn't mean we should condone wiping them off the face of the earth.
