Pro-GMO Rally In Nanaimo May 23

For Immediate Release
Pro-GMO Group to Counter Demonstrate at Saturday’s March Against Monsanto

What:  The first organized global effort to protest the annual March Against Monsanto demonstration. For the past two years, March Against Monsanto has drawn protesters to spread misinformation and fear about Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). This year March Against Myths About Modification (MAMyths) has launched a grass-roots endeavor to curb that misinformation and help consumers better understand biotechnology.

* It’s been 20 years since GMOs were introduced and there hasn’t been a single documented incident of harm.
* Every major scientific body in the world stands behind the safety of GMOs - GMO crops are the most researched and tested technology inagricultural history.
* We care about the integrity of our food, we care about the environment, and we want to ensure a safe, available food supply for future generations.
* Biotechnology offers real tools to help solve issues likesmarter use of resources, ways to feed a growing population in the face of climate change; and ways to better the nutritional profile of our food.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. We have changed our meeting location to coincide with the other well-known event in Diana Krall Plaza. The organizer for that event, Vida Turok, had invited one of our organizers to speak during the MAM event. She was removed from her position as organizer of the Nanaimo MAM for offering us hospitality. We don't know if we'll be able to speak at the official event but we will still be there in the hopes that things go as planned. I personally appreciate the support.
