Less than 24 hours left to save our food!

Less than 24 hours left to save our food!

Dear Soheb,

Click here to tell your MP to stop the BRAI bill
The Biotechnology Regulatory Authority of India (BRAI) Bill, 2011 is going to be introduced in Parliament today (November 22, 2011). Our food is in danger.

The last few months have seen massive opposition against this dangerous bill, which will create a body that willsingle-handedly clear risky genetically modified (GM) crops in our country.[1] Over a lakh people have opposed the BRAI bill. Their opposition took the form of the World's Biggest Baingan Bharta. [2]

We have to tell our leaders that we don't want this bill to mess up our food and health. We have to do this now as the Members of Parliament (MPs) discuss the bill. Write to them, call them, tell them that we want safe food and not an undemocratic BRAI. Time is less. Act now.

You should ask the MPs to stop the dangerous BRAI bill because it is threatens the safety of our food.

http://www.greenpeace.in/take-action/save-your-food/contact-your-mp-now.php

In the past people of our country have come together and achieved the impossible. This time it is about our food and the health of generations. Our leaders need to be shown the strength of people power yet again.

GM crops are created by inserting genes from unrelated organisms like bacteria and virusinto our food crops. This makes our food potentially toxic. BRAI will clear this kind of technology, without even considering the opinion of those who will be affected by it.

Public pressure helped stop genetically modified Bt brinjal, the first GM food crop that came up for approval [3] now the threat is back. If the BRAI bill is passed the safety of our food will be under threat. Our food needs to be saved again. Act now!

Thanks a billion!
