Event:
Support healthy food and say no to GM
You may not have heard much about GM crops or even know what they are, but now the fight against this future threat to our choice of food to eat has reached W.A.

Genetically modified or GM crops are plants in which their DNA has been modified using genetic engineering techniques.



You are invited to attend a public event in support of a Kojanup farmer who is fighting the multinational giant Monsato against GM crops.

Monsanto has been voted the world's most evil company in 2013.
See here for full story.

On Saturday 9 February at the Perth Town Hall from 9.30am to 11.30am watch a film with Q&A about how one farmer lost his organic certification after it was contaminated by Monsanto's GM canola and how he must fight his neighbour for compensation.

Entry is free but with limited seating RSVP to Steve Marsh support.

Then from 12.00 noon to 1.30pm gather at the Stirling Gardens on corner of Barrack and St Georges Tce for a meeting. The court case itself is due to begin on Monday 10 February.

For the Facebook campaign see here.

There is currently a "I am Steve Marsh" campaign with huge support from well known high profile people including Matt Preston and Kylie Kwong and Costa Georgiadis.



This case is the first of its kind in the world, where an organic farmer is seeking compensation from a GM farmer when his rights have been violated by GM contamination.

Remember if farmers can't choose what they grow, how can we choose what we eat?
