Take Action Against GM Food


This is again an e-mail I have gotten from my friend to take action to keep India free of genetic contamination. Below is the mail and link:

Last year the GEAC a government body under the Environment Ministry almost approved the commercialisation of BT Brinjals without conducting proper safety tests. Thanks to the efforts of thousands of people like me the issue now depends on a public consultation which will take place across 7 cities in the country.

As members of the public we must let Environment minister Jairam Ramesh know our take on this issue and help him make the right decisions. Greenpeace and other environmental, agricultural and civil society groups are also putting in their efforts to ensure the same.

As citizens of this democratic nation, we too are stakeholders in such an important decision and our opinions on this issue certainly make a great difference. I have left a message for Jairam Ramesh  at – http://greenpeace.in/safefood/consult-me-too/?tyf=1
