Support Precaution on GMO’s – Protect our existing valuable GE-Free status in Northland and Auckland region

Easy Submission Guide – August  September 2014

Please support Whangarei District Council…and Far North District Council’s excellent collaborative proposed GMO Plan changes

It is about making two separate submissions – which can be emailed or done online – to the Whangarei District Council, and to the Far North District Council, supporting their excellent proposed GMO District plan changes to protect our biosecurity, existing non GM farmers and environment

 

WDC and FNDC sensibly propose banning all genetically modified organism releases, and to also put in place strict controls should the Environmental Protection Agency (based in Wellington) decide to approve any outdoor GE experiments/ field trials in the Northland region
These are vital submissions if you want to continue to be able to have a GE Free environment up  here in the north.   It’s easy!  Have your say!
