Interactive Public Mtg on GM crops
(we have one GM oilseed rape field already in flower in W Dorset, and 4 maize, in S and W Dorset, which we hope to persuade the powers that be to officially destroy the 4 fields of maize before they flower)
Mtg Sun 15th July
6.30pm!! to 9 pm
Weymouth Arts Centre, next to Debenhams, Commercial Rd
Dr Mae Wan Ho
and a few mins from a Dorset organic veg commercial grower
and then all talking re building alliances between all the various people locally against GM crops
- farmers, beekeepers included.
also a focus on the maize (see below)
Please come and please spread the word
If you need a map, or want flyers by post, send me a s.a.e today!
58 Cromwell Rd
Weymouth DT4 0JQ
ALSO PLEASE write in the next 3 or 4 days (if you have not in the last 2 wks) to MP Oliver Letwin, and if you have time also Jim Knight (S Dorset MP, covers one trial field) asking them to add their voices to those calling for the current GM maize crops consent covering the GM crops in S and W Dorset to be revoked by Margaret Beckett and the maize to be officially destroyed before it flowers. If you need more info, please e me.
Have been to lobby O Letwin, and he is checking if there are any safety tests (several people have already tried and drawn a blank) - he will press Dr Linda Smith Dept of Env for the papers to arrive by Fri 13.6.
Am seeing Jim Knight on 13.7.
