Post Our right to know

Post by Starshine on Mon Aug 25, 2008 3:16 pm

I urge you to visit this site
http://www.truefood.org.au/OurRightToKnow/

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE sign the petition. It is of the uptmost IMPORTANCE as it affects us all and all of our futures and that of our children, grandchildren etc etc.




“The first-ever crop of genetically modified canola grown in Australia will be harvested this October - and canola oil finds its way into a huge range of common foods. Such products are already either banned or clearly labelled in Europe.

But with no comprehensive requirement for GM products to be labelled in
Australia, we will be denied the choice as to whether or not we buy these unnatural foods for our families. Due to current regulations and laws regarding food labeling in Australia, as consumers we are not given a choice as to whether certain foods have been Genetically Modified or contains nano-technology. We are not to know what we are buying and eating as companies are not required to inform us. As consumers we will have no choice about the foods we eat.

Time is of the essence, but together we can still make GM labelling a reality. In April 2007, the Labor Party’s national conference passed a motion in favor of labelling. Now they’re in government, let's push them over the finish line to make their policy reality, in law.

Please visit this site to read information and to sign the petition .... http://www.truefood.org.au/OurRightToKnow



Joining the call for better labelling are more than 150 of
Australia’s leading chefs, including Tetsuya Wakuda, Margaret Fulton, Matt Moran, Dur-é Dara, Kylie Kwong, and Stephanie Alexander. At Tuesday’s media launch of the petition, Tobie Puttock, head chef at Fifteen, said:


“…If GM products are a reality then at the very least we have the right to know exactly what we are eating. Eat local, Eat natural!”



Please, join Tobie and the other chefs in this call – surely it’s our right to know what’s in our food?



PLEASE sign the petition at: http://www.truefood.org.au/OurRightToKnow





PS The WA Government has just announced a four-year extension of its state ban on GM crops and has called for tighter labelling laws.
