Sign this letter opposing GMO Corn in Mexico
No to transgenic maize! No to genetically modified corn!
Red en Defensa del Maíz of Mexico invites you to join them in sending a strong message to:
--the Mexican government
--the Convention on Biological Diversity / Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety and
--the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations / FAO.
The indigenous and peasant organizations and communities, environmental organizations, popular education organizations, base organizations, ecclesiastical communities, groups of producers, members of urban movements, scholars, scientists, and political analysts of the Network In Defense of Maize vigorously repudiate the planting of transgenic maize in Mexico. It is a historic crime against the peoples of maize, against biodiversity and food sovereignty, against ten thousand years of indigenous and peasant agriculture that bequeathed this seed for the well being of all the peoples of the world.
It is urgent to respond to a Mexican presidential decree of March 6, 2009 which now permits the planting of transgenic maize.
