The Organic Consumer’s Association has launched a “Millions against Monsanto” campaign that I urge you to support:

|An Open Letter to HON. DONNA EVELYN MARY FARAGHER, MLC. Minister for the EnvironmentDear MinisterThe decision to allow GMO crops into WA, once made, is irreversible. The risks to Public Health, our agricultural environment and our export earnings as a supplier of non GMO produce are just too great, at this point in time, to allow GMOs into our food chain.I therefore plead with you to vote for the Disallowance Motion and prevent the approval for Genetically Engineered Crops to be grown in Western Australia. No one has a crystal ball to see future consequences of GMO technology. Thus, until independentscientific research can establish that GMOs have a non-toxic impact on human beings, your vote for the Disallowance Motion is the only rational course of action.BEFORE CASTING YOUR VOTE, I beg you to take the time to consider the following:

Please, do not follow a party line that, to date, has been imposed upon a very concerned community. I write in full knowledge of the burden of responsibility and difficulty you face in this decision but PLEASE, vote for the Disallowance Motion. In one single vote you will lead and not follow. The very least that can happen as a result of your leadership is that your vote will allow time for the dispassionate science on this issue to be known and taken into account. No properly informed person at this time could vote otherwise.
