  • A halt to ALL GM food approvals both imports and local grown GM crops.
  • A stop to GM contamination.
  • Farmer protection legislation.
  • Sustainable GM-free agriculture and protection of biodiversity.
  • A stop to public funding of GM crops.
  • Transparency and accountability.
  • Saying NO to being ruled by Corporations and not being a part of the democratic political process.

Check out also the upcoming screening of The Future of Food at the Perth Activist Centre:

The first of a series of films at the Perth Activist Centre.

The Future of Food distills the complex technology and consumer issues surrounding major changes in the food system today -- genetically engineered foods, patenting, and the corporatization of food -- into terms the average person can understand. It empowers consumers to realize the consequences of their food choices on our future.
