Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

In recent years, scientists have found that the effects of genetically modified (GM) food are more complex and unpredictable than had been foreseen. Governments and regulatory agencies worldwide have displayed growing caution in response to this new understanding, and the ever-increasing uncertainty about the safety of GM crops for both human health and the environment.

In the 2007 election, the Federal ALP promised not to approve the release of GM crops unless they could be proven safe "beyond reasonable doubt". Please help the GM free Alliance to remind the Federal Government that it has yet to deliver on its election promises and party policy relating to GM foods and crops.

Please lend your voice and sign this petition. It takes 30 seconds and it will make a difference.
