Stop-Inghams-Ge.org Campaign Day: 28th of May

On Friday the 28th of May (Today), GE Free activists and supporters of a GE Free Aotearoa/New Zealand are invited to join in an email, fax and phone in day to help http://www.Stop-Inghams-GE.org/.

INGHAMS is the biggest cause of GE contamination in the New Zealand food chain through their importation of genetically engineered (GE) soybeans for chicken feed.

Recent campaigning against Inghams customer McDonalds has seen them commit to seeking a non-GE feed supply for their chicken products and Inghams will provide non-GE soy from their next two shipments. However, Inghams have failed to commit to sourcing non-GE soy for the longer term and continue to import GE contaminated soy into Australia.

Join our 'sit-in' and demand that Inghams commit to a GE-Free policy and help keep NZ GE FREE.

Instructions:


=============

All you need to do, is to phone, fax and/or email Inghams **today**, through the following information (or through our website http://sit-in.stop-inghams-ge.org):

Phone 0800 800-785
Fax (09) 579-8137
Email: mrozen@inghams.com.au


The Stop-Inghams-Ge.org campaign is the first step in a grassroots campaign to keep NZ GE Free. By helping the 'sit-in' you are helping bring NZ closer to being GE Free.

GE-Free Actvists and supporters won't stop targetting Inghams until it commits to a GE-Free policy.

Gordon Campbell: On The Peters/Ardern Triumph

There are a lot of good reasons to feel joyful about this outcome. It is what so many young voters – the best hope for the country’s future – wanted.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
