    2. In 2014 An Orwellian double-speak

      re: Grocery Manufacturers Want Foods with GMOs to be labeled as "Natural"
      2014 is the 30th anniversary of Orwell's 1984; If "natural l" were to become 'unnatural",redefining "natural' to include GMOs, would become the epitome of Orwellian ' double speak"

      The institutional Collusion, in relation to genetically engineered food and crops, among corporations, governments, universities and regulatory agencies has been endemic; For the sake of food security for present and future generations: (i) this collusion must end; (ii) the
      precautionary principle must be invoked, (iv) genetically engineered food and
      crops, banned; (v) the charters of Monsanto et al, revoked; and (vi) charges of gross/criminal negligence against these corporations, levied

      Grocery Manufacturers Want Foods with GMOs to Be Labeled as 'Natural'

      There was a time when food was food. You ate it and were glad of it. What could be more "natural" than that?

      Unethical Journal Retraction Fuels Mistrust in GMO Science

      Story at-a-glance Last year, the first-ever lifetime feeding study assessing the health risks of genetically engineered Roundup Ready corn was published Last month, Food and Chemical Toxicology retracted the study saying it "did not meet scientific standards" While no errors or misrepresentation of data were found, the journal stated the study had too small a sample size to make any definite conclusion about health effects.

    4. Stage 2- sending petition to UN Missions

      Now that We have Reached 1000 signatures, a letter will be sent out to various UN missions

      We will be including, in the letter, the PDF of the excellent Scientific Report entitled “GMOs must be banned Now" This Report was written by Dr. Mae-Wan ho Dr Eva Sinathsinghji from ISIS (Institute of Science in Society).

      The petition will be continued because more signatures are still coming in . and when we reach 1500 we will do another update. Thank you for signing the petition. If you have time, please continue to share the petition and pass it on to your Prime Minister or President and to relevant government departments.

    6. FDA appears to ignores opposition to GE salmon UK scientists issue warnin

      It is reported that the FDA is poised to approve Genetically engineered Aquabounty Salmon for human consumption ;. If approved, it would be the first-ever GE animal permitted for human consumption in the U.S. On April 26 2013 the 120-day comment period ended with 1.8 million submissions opposing the approval of Aquabounty salmon.
      Once approved, will it be exported everywhere? Unless there is a global ban on genetically engineered food and crops, global citizens will have to be constantly vigilant and have to oppose over and over again each new product introduced by this rogue technology.

      Scientists issue safety warning over GM food

      Scientists join forces to challenge claims genetically modified food is safe for humans The Environment Secretary has launched a campaign to win sceptical public over Scientists warn there is 'serious' lack of research into health effects of GM food By Sean Poulter, Consumer Affairs Editor PUBLISHED: 18:24 EST, 20 October 2013 | UPDATED: 18:25 EST, 20 October 2013 Eighty-five scientists have joined forces to challenge the claims of biotech giants and the UK government that GM food is safe for humans.

      World Food Prize goes to 3 representatives of rogue technologies
      http://pejnews.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=9426:world-food-prize-goes-to-3-representatives-of-rogue-technologies&catid=86:i-earth-news&Itemid=210

      Today is World Food Day. Unfortunately World Food Day has been undermined by the bestowing of an award to representatives from Monsanto and two other Biotech corporations. This Award is not a surprise because the private, non-profit World Food Prize Foundation has received significant funding from major biotechnology companies, and has had ties to DuPont, Cargill, Monsanto, and Syngenta. Unfortunately because it is awarded on World food Day on October 16, many may think, as I did, that this prize is a legitimate prize linked to the legitimate World Food Day. It has even been represented as the Nobel Laureate of agriculture.

      Update on the petition

      From September 17 to 30, I was at the United |Nations and circulated information about the petition to members of NGOs and members of state delegations which were not from GMO-producing states. I attended high level sessions on follow up to Rio +20, the closing of the Commission on Sustainable Development, the Millennium Development Goals, Development and Human Rights, UNESCO, a session on Social Development and UNISEF. There was wide support for calling for a global ban.
      Please share the petition with others. When I get 1000 signatures, I will send it around to the UN Missions in New York/ Geneva, and the FAO in Rome

      On October 8, Co-campaigner, Nnimmo Bassey from Nigeria gave a presentation, in Nigeria on banning genetically engineered food and crops

      Why is this important to you? (Optional) Having become one of the statistics of disease and misery for which GMO’s/glyphosate/BT’s are responsible, I do not want one more ounce of soil, one more plant or animal, one more human being to suffer the fate that is mine. The only just restitution for the corporations involved in this genocide of our Earth is to revoke all their licenses, charters, and patents and to convict all the people responsible of criminal acts, including those in our government agencies who have betrayed the world.

      genetically modifying plants and food sources muight e ite neurotic scientiosts but I promoe resitance, because sometimes when a m,an indulges himself he ignores the repercussions, a man with a habnd down his opants can be dangerous, we are not greater tha the world, it ibves us all we need, that and thwe threat to biodiversity, the day man patents a pla t is the day we are one step further away from our selves, has it already happened?
