Recommend the withdrawal of the dangerous #BRAIBill

    1. Petition by

      Nandita Das

      Mumbai, India

Like most people, I enjoy healthy food - that’s why I am strongly opposed to genetic modification of our food.

I was so happy when I got to know that citizens' positive action with regard to BRAI Bill, the legislation that our Government is trying to bring in to give easy approval for GM crops, has already won our first victory. The Standing Committee on Science & Technology has extended the deadline for public feedback on the bill by giving an additional 45 days.

Now we need to make sure that the Committee hears the people’s voice against the Bill. We have to ask the Committee to recommend withdrawal of the Bill.

The BRAI Bill will allow Genetically Modified crops to gain fast-track approval without adequate safety tests. This will only benefit multinational biotech seed corporations, like Monsanto, and will allow them to push their patented GM crops into our farms and plates. It will thus facilitate the takeover of our farming and food by these corporations. BRAI will not only be dangerous for Indian farmers and consumers but to our national sovereignty itself.

To ensure that we save our food, farmers and freedom, you should join our campaign - Sign this petition and share this mail with your friends.

      This is the most important subject/ Topic in discussion all over the world. We do not need these GM Food in India, they have already spoilt our health with Fertilizers & Pesticides, I will fight them Tooth & Nail, even at the cost of my life. Our ancestors did Organic Farming & lived Happily to a Ripe old age, These guys have through their clever Marketing, on Production manipulation, pushed us into Heartattacks & Cancer, now they have other plans. Please throw them out.
