3 weeks to stop the GM apple

What are you doing to stop the genetically engineered apple? The GM apple that will look fresh 15-18 days after it’s cut. The GM apple that has 2 different bacteria and 1 plant virus added to the apple DNA to stop it from browning.  The GM apple, that if approved, will lead to genetically engineered granny smith, golden delicious, fuji and gala apples as well as cherries, peaches and pears.

we need signatures against the GE apple – deadline May 6th

Please print out the petition against the GE apple and get your friends and family to sign it, or better still take it to a local cafe, health food store or restaurant and leave it in a place where signatures can be collected. Or ask a vendor at your local farmers’ market.

The petitions will go to the Legislature in mid-May, so here’s your chance to make a difference. The NDP are also formally asking the Liberal government to carry out the review of the GE apple it promised -more on the governments response when we get it.

Join us for a GE apple campaign dinner, 8th April, Vancouver

Please join us for a GE apple campaign fundraiser at Graze restaurant in Vancouver.

If you are booking for the 8th April, dinner sittings are at 6pm and 8pm, and please mention GE Free BC when making the reservation.See the graphic below for more details.

The apple campaign is at a crucial stage. We are pushing the government to carry out the review of the GE apple after the UBCM resolution in 2012 (and have got the NDP here to write to the government asking for this review), approaching MLAs, gathering signatures on petitions, and approaching a lot of retail stores asking them to commit to not selling the GE apple. If we can’t shut this down in the next few months we are likely to see a whole range of GE fruits coming to BC, as promised by Okanagan Specialty Fruits.

Right now we are asking everyone to write to the Minister of Agriculture to hold the review that the government has promised – see http://gefreebc.wordpress.com/2014/03/28/tell-the-bc-govt-to-carry-out-review-it-promised-on-the-ge-apple/ and on the apple campaign in general: http://gefreebc.wordpress.com/apple/
