This article from the get-go is misleading. From the link they provided, the actual amount raised is 1.002 million... not exactly breaking the bank on this one, and that is from 23 financiers, compared to the SIX financiers totalling over 2 million....
This has been called a David and Goliath battle, but the fact is, the Goliath is the yes side! The organic companies stand to profit massively from this, which is why they have financed the bill. This has nothing to do with knowledge, mostly because most of the facts out there about GMOs are false. This has to do with money.
I am not saying GMO's don't require oversight, and maybe label them if the information out there wasn't all fear and sensationalism. Developed world food prices directly affect third world food prices. A ten cent increase in food cost may not seem like much here, but that could mean 100,000's of starving people somewhere else.
The yes side is supported by large organic companies essentially... I am not sure to what extent Mercola has to gain at this yes though. Make decisions based on scientific evidence, not fear. Don't make fallacies like Natural is better, and big corporation makes something evil.
