GM Free

From a Greenpeace email out:

The NSW government is considering approving large-scale trials of genetically engineered (GE) canola throughout the state despite a three-year moratorium implemented by Bob Carr last year. The so called trials are attempts by agrochemical companies Monsanto and Bayer CropScience to secure a commercial release by stealth as the canola crop will be sold and the seeds collected for future use.

Ask Carr to keep his election promise by saying NO to the trial!

I’ve just finished reading Good News For A Change by David Suzuki – and I now firmly believe that GM crops are not something that we should be pursuing into the future. It is clear to me that organic, poly-cultural crops are a far better option both in terms of sustainability and ensuring that we don’t destroy the environment any more than we have already. And I am someone who was cautiously optimistic about GM crops a few months back.
