Call to arms from Grist in wake of Prop 37 loss

| | November 9, 2012

Despite the defeat of Prop 37, the food movement is being urged to keep fighting the good fight. Grist, in particular, notes that “this doesn’t mean an end to the food-labeling movement — on the contrary, things are just getting started.”

“Where electoral politics and California’s crazy proposition system have failed, direct citizen action is picking up the campaign. For some months, “Label It Yourself” has promoted self-regulation at your local grocery store. A “decentralized, autonomous grassroots campaign born out of our broken food system,” its efforts have intensified after Prop 37′s defeat.

In other words, the food movement is taking labeling into their own hands.
