GM FREE NATION - WHAT YOU CAN DO
 

 

Go to www.gmnation.org.uk and fill out their online form
this one is going to 10 Downing Street!

Here you will also find a lot more information about the alleged pros and the cons
of GM crops. You can also order a free toolkit to help you get involved in the debate and make sure that your voice is heard.

Here's MORE info on the dangers of GM

Email your local authority to make it GM free, this will make it much harder for the government to force commercial GM growing on us
Go to www.foe.co.uk to tell your local US ambassador how you feel
Contact the Soil Association for leaflets to distribute: Tel (UK) 0117 914 2447
Contact your local supermarket - see below
Fax your local MP (via this link): tell them them about your concerns. They are legally obliged to reply!

Do you remember a few years ago we managed to get all supermarkets (starting with Iceland) to stop using GM ingredients in their own brand food? Who would have thought it possible, but we did it! Consumer power really does work. I recently attended a meeting held by the Patrick Holden of the Soil Association. He told us how when in conversation with the chief executive of Tesco last year, he was told that it takes surprisingly few letters to arrive at head office for a matter to be raised at the board meeting. So come on, let's get writing and phoning!

The most powerful action you can take is to WRITE to your local supermarket. Tell them that if the government goes ahead with allowing GM crops to be grown commercially, you will ONLY shop with them if they can GUARANTEE that their food is GM Free. Bear in mind that the supermarkets won't be able to do this: therefore if you put pressure on the supermarkets, they'll put pressure on the government. Use the arguments as given here.

If you don't like writing letters:

Ring the customer care line of your local supermarket, telling them;

1) that you buy organic food from them and would like to be able to buy UK produced organic food whenever possible.

2) that you are worried that if commercial planting of GM crops goes ahead in the UK, all farms will be contaminated by GM and you will not be able to buy uncontaminated British food even if it is organic food.

3) ask the supermarket what they are going to do to make sure that this doesn't happen.

KEEP MILK GM-FREE

New GM labelling regulations will not apply to meat products from animals fed on GM animal feed. You will have no idea whether the milk you are drinking has come from an animal fed GMOs - unless it is organic milk.

If this concerns you, please contact the four main UK dairies today and tell them your concerns. Links to contact forms below:

1 Tell them your concerns.
2 Ask them to guarantee they will source GM-free animal feed.
