Action against genetically engineered 'Arctic' Apple rustique

Love the Apple - No GMOBee SAFE, along with the Society for a GE Free BC, CBAN and the Health Action Network Society (HANS) are asking the BC Government to declare a moratorium on the GM apple and we're asking retailers to commit to not selling the GM apple.

PLEASE HELP by doing 3 things:

  1. Go to your local store and ask the manager to commit to not sell the GM apple.
  2. Collect signatures on the BC petition and place petitions in local popular spots.
  3. Write, call or meet with your MLA to ask him to support a moratorium on the GM apple.

Attached is a Poster explaining the campaign, and a Petition. Click here for all the facts on the GM apple.

We are working on getting a private member's bill presented in the legislature asking for a moratorium on the GM apple. We think the GE apple can be stopped because all municipalities in BC have passed a resolution against it, apple grower associations in BC and Washington State have publicly come out against the apple, and no one wants the apple except the company in the Okanagan developing it. 

There are 4 things you can do to make this happen:

  1. Print the attached petition and display it in your community - at markets, in stores, at events, anywhere you can, and gather as many signatures as possible.
    Let us know where in your community petitions will be available so we can let others know.
  2. Let all the stores where you shop know that you do not want the GM apple and ask the manager to please not stock it so as not to confuse buyers.
  3. Send letters to your local paper letting people know about the campaign and asking them to sign the petition.
  4. Contact your MLA's office to tell them you do not want the GM apple.

March Against Monsanto

March Against Monsanto rustique

The crowd gathersOn Saturday, May 24, about a hundred people marched and demonstrated in Vernon, against Monsanto's Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) and the pesticides used with GM crops. This yearly event saw people all over the world telling governments to ban GM crops and stop Monsanto's domination over seeds.

People who gathered in Vernon expressed their frustrations at the lack of local government action in heeding the will of the people. As many stated “hundreds of people and groups sent letters to RDNO and hundreds more showed up to say we want to be GE FREE, and still nothing has been done – what will it take to move them?” See more pictures here and check out - and like - the new Facebook Vernon MAM thanks to Jaye!.

Research linking Roundup with the rising rates of Autism, severe allergies and cancers are making people realize there is no point in continuing to look for cures when the causes are known and being ignored. Since Saturday noon is a time when most growers around Vernon are at farmers' markets, having 100 people showing up for a march, should send a strong signal to politicians that people want rid of GM crops and Roundup.
