To reach a 1000 we need 550 more
Oct 10, 2013 — 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
