Kona Coffee  THE OPPORTUNITY TO SUPPORT Kona Coffee farmers is yours on Thursday. Next to tourism, Kona Coffee is our best known commodity. For many, it is what puts Kona on the map. The Kona Coffee Farmers Association is greatly concerned about the possibility of genetically modified coffee destroying their very valuable industry.

ON NOVEMBER 13TH, 10AM TO 6PM your testimony is requested at the Kona County Council office located behind Big Island Grill or the council office in Hilo. A County Council 9 to 0 vote to ban GMO Coffee & Taro on Hawaii Island was vetoed by Mayor Harry Kim. The purpose of this meeting is to override this veto. Six votes are required. This is an urgent matter.

YOUR TESTIMONY MAY BE SHORT, just ask to have the veto overridden.
