According to Mercury News, “the yes campaign raised $9.2 million” to promote and educate the desire to label foods and explain the harms of GMO’s. But it’s mere chump change relative to the push and pull of agribusinesses and industry: “The no side [of the proposition] raised $46 million and spent nearly $27 million on radio, television and Internet advertising across the state. St. Louis-based Monsanto, a leading maker of genetically engineered seeds, was the largest single contributor with $8.1 million.”  Living in the age of information, it’s astonishing to see how and who can deny the people the right to know, where knowing simply begins with the ability to see.
