KI'I ERECTED AT HAWAI'I STATE CAPITOL
 IN PROTEST OF GMO TARO
  7 February, 2012

  Walter Ritte’s efforts to ban the genetic modification of taro
  continued today on the grounds of the state capitol where a
  small group of activists erected a wooden statue, or ki’i.

 
 
   The Haloa ki'i sits on the grounds of the state 
   capitol in protest of GMO taro. 
 


  
 
   Protesters are lobbying legislators 
   to pass a bill to require food 
   manufacturers to label the use 
   of GMOs.
 
   While state legislation to ban GMO 
   (genetically modified organism) taro 
   has failed in the past, Ritte, from 
   Ho’olehua, has shifted his focus on 
   changing the law to require the 
   labeling of food products that 
   contain GMOs.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
   “That’s why we worked all day putting up the ki’i, building
  our ahu, to bring people to realize that we need to label 


 

 
   our food and we need to know what
   we are eating, especially  if it is GMO’s. 
   And right now, we don’t have that 
   opportunity.  We don’t know what 
   we are eating,” said Ritte.
    Besides labeling, this new bill that
   Ritte is lobbying for would also 
   requir biotech companies to reveal
   where they’re conducting field trials.
 
 
 





 
 
 
 
                             
      It was more than two years ago 
    that a Maui County bill banned
    GMO taro. Maui County Bill 09-100, 
    which amended the county code to 
    prohibit genetically engineered and 
    recombinant DNA taro, passed the 
    county council unanimously in
    September of 2009.
 
 
 
 

 
   
    With that passage Maui joined 
    Hawaii, Molokai, Lanai and Kaho’olawe
    as Hawaii islands that ban genetic
    modification of kalo.

Ritte said the ki`i represents the
image of the first man Haloa and his sacred 
relationship with the taro plant and other food.  Ritte said the group believes
genetically modified plants represents a threat to human health and the environment.


   The five-hour rally in the Capitol rotunda featured speakers and
   free organic and non-GMO appetizers and snacks.
 

Supporters of the GMO food labeling legislation also spoke with lawmakers
who can schedule hearings on the bills.

The group has a state permit to leave the platform and statue on
the Capitol grounds until Feb. 29, according to the state Senate
Sgt.-At-Arms Ben Villaflor.
