I think this lecture was the one actually done in 2012, not this year, but really worth the watch.

I wish the GMO ban spanned the whole state, it's just the Island of Hawaii...but that's a start! Getting the Island of Oahu (the most populated island) to do it will be an uphill battle.

Thanks for the link Shivamoon. I will wait until I have a free hour to do it justice. I just read where Hawaii was the first state to outlaw GMO crops. Way to go Hawaii.

Melanie Joy is a powerful speaker. This video is from a speech she gave at the Vegetarian Society of Hawaii earlier this year. There is one section, about 4 minutes long where she will show some of the things that happen to farmed animals -- she is very respectful and will warn you in advance, and you can choose not to watch it. I watched that clip during a former speech she gave and it was painful to see but also reinforced my attitude (although I don't need to reinforce my choice to be vegan, I just am.) Whether you skip that clip or not, I recommend this lecture -- one hour long -- she got a standing ovation.

You can bypass the lounge music and Lorraine's introduction to cut down a minute or two with no loss.
