Over 2 million keep up the pressure on GM FOODS, to drive them out of the fields; out of the stores and out of our lives - FOREVER.
Dear Friends and Supporters,
The global march against Monsanto and GM Foods on 25 May’13 was a resounding success - with over 2 million taking part worldwide, it was peaceful, educational, joyous and ultimately TRIUMPHANT. However, although it took place in over 250 cities across the globe, not one of the UK mainstream news media felt the health issues raised were important enough to cover. Instead, the media chose to focus our attention on terrorism; instilling more public fear; whilst ignoring the very ‘real global threat’ ofGenetically Modified Foods. As we have outlined on numerous occasions in the past, this is how the media work hand in glove with Corporations, to prevent the truth reaching YOU, (the public). And it didn’t stop there. The week before the march, we asked all UK Political Leaders, Government Ministers & Members (in both Houses of Parliament), to sign our petition and look seriously into the issues surrounding GM Food production. None responded or signed the petition to safeguard your human rights, health choices and the environment. An incredibly poor result, however, we will keep pressing them and keep you updated. Nevertheless, the march showed what can be achieved when we come together and take action. Our Voices saying “NO!” ricocheted loud and clear throughout the world, leaving Corporate giants and Monsanto in no doubt that we mean business and intend to stop GM production globally.
HEALTH CONCERNS AND GM FOODS: Should you be

Reminder of the Issue:
To recap: in March 2013, a new Law was passed in America, giving GM producer ‘Monsanto’ absolute immunity against any harm their products could cause you, loved-ones, future generations & the environment. This means that Monsanto (the largest producer), can now legally unleash their genetically-modified seeds on to the world’s population. Sadly, the majority of people are unaware that they may have been consuming Genetically Modified Foods (GM) for over 20 years, which research has linked tocancer, infertility, birth defects, organ damage, premature deaths and much more. For full details, please look at our previous news release.

THE NEXT STEP:
BOYCOTT YOUR LOCAL SUPERMARKET.
The march was just 'the beginning' but 'not the end' of GM production. Therefore, we need to step up the pressure by not buying them, to ensure GM Foods are driven out of the fields; out of the stores and out of our lives - forever. To do this effectively, we must demand the labeling of all GM products, so they can be easily identified. NOT BUYING GM is the greatest tool we have to end global production and Corporate abuse. So please remain vigilant; pro-active; shop smart and keep up the momentum. To help get you started, we have listed a few pointers below.
1. THE ‘RIGHT TO KNOW’ - WHAT WE ARE EATING.
DID YOU KNOW, over 60 Corporations oppose GM Food labeling, to prevent us knowing what is in their products? These companies include Monsanto, Basf, DuPont, Bayer, Nestle, Pepsico, Coca Cola, Unilever, Welch's, Godiva Chocolatier, MaCain Foods, Dole, Kraft Foods, Heinz, Campbell Soup Company, Sara Lee, Del Monte, Kellogg's, Wrigley, Mars, McCormick, Morton Salt, Ocean Spray, General Mills, Sunny Delight Beverages Company, Cargill, Goya, Bumble Bee, Faribault, Smuckers, Knouse, Richelieu, Homel, Pinnacle, B&G, TreeTop, the Grocery Manufacturers Association (with over 300 members); and lots more.
