Statement

By clicking 'Submit' you are adding your electronic signature to the following statement.

The undersigned businesses, organisations and shoppers:
- support the existing state bans on Genetically Manipulated (GM) food crops;
- call for the bans to be extended for at least another five years.

Ending the bans on the unrestricted commercial release of herbicide tolerant GM canola would threaten: export markets; our trade in clean, green products; sustainable organic food production and supply chain systems. GM would also intensify unsustainable food production, with adverse health and environmental impacts.

Organic farming and food are the fastest growing segments of Australian agriculture and are the way of the future. GM and chemicals have no place in our production systems, though some other aspects of biotechnology may play a part.

We therefore strongly urge our governments to:
- extend the GM crop bans until at least 2013; and,
- ensure full labeling of all foods made using GM technology, including oils and products from animals fed GM feed.

Campaign

Keep Australia GM Free

Please join the Gene Ethics campaign to keep Australia GM-free. It's free, easy and important! Bans on Genetically Manipulated (GM) canola in Australia are under review. Bayer, Monsanto and allied agribusiness groups want state governments to lift their bans so that GM canola would be on farms and in our food. You can act now to stop them, by using this site to express your concerns to your parliamentarians, the panels reviewing the bans and the Premier of your state.
