THE GMO emperor has no clothes
THE GMO EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES
A Global Citizens Report on the State of GMOs - False Promises, Failed Technologies
By Navdanya International in cooperation with numerous organizations around the world
People who point out the emptiness of the pretensions of powerful people and institutions are often compared to the child in Hans Christian Andersen's fable who says that the emperor has no .
The fable that GMOs are feeding the world has already led to large-scale destruction of biodiversity and farmers’ livelihoods. It is threatening the very basis of our freedom to know what we eat and to choose what we eat. Our biodiversity and our seed freedom are in peril. Our food freedom, food democracy and food sovereignty are at stake.
This report is a compilation of the many voices from around the globe speaking the truth about what is happening in their communities and countries and are exposing the illusion that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are, as Wendell Berry writes, “the latest answer-to-everything”.
Actions recommended in this report include:
--Campaign to disinvest from Monsanto
--Boycott GMOs - Eat organic
--Demand labeling of GMOs
--Put your money to support local ecological/organic food projects and invest in the future
--Campaign to get your village/town/region/country GMO-free
--Help save seeds
