World’s Longest GE Free Sandwich in Wellington


At Civic Square October 6, 1 pm

Wellingtonians are invited to enjoy the longest GE Free Sandwich in the world at Civic Square October 6 - National GE Free Day.

Pandoros Bakery is donating the bread while Soulfood Organics is providing the fillings for the mammoth, 50 metre long sandwich.

The sandwich will be delivered to Civic Square at 1pm.

The sandwich is part of GE Free Wellington activities which aim to provide an opportunity for locals to voice their support for a GE Free City.

Wellington people will be able to register their homes as GE Free on a national register and will be invited to spell out GE Free in human letters.

“This day is a chance for Wellingtonians to express their concerns about the release of GMOs into our food and environment,” said Edwin Dando, spokesperson for capital GE Free. “Many New Zealanders want this technology to be wisely and responsibly used within the containment of the laboratory. Currently our environment is GE Free and we want to keep it that way”.

“A GE Free Environment policy would not stop medical and scientific research and development using gene technology but would confine all genetically engineered organisms to contained laboratories” said Dando.

“We eat the bread we make every day and our children eat it too! We are concerned as individuals and a company about the long-term effects of genetic engineering on our food and eventually on our bodies and the environment. We say ‘Keep GE in the lab and off our tables!” said Anita McIlhagga of Pandoros.

Capital GE Free thanks Pandoros and Soulfood Organics for their support of a GE Free Environment Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Gordon Campbell: On Our Weird Ways Of Funding Care For The Dying


National Party leader Judith Collins thinks the government’s traffic light system for emerging from Covid lockdowns is “confusing.” Perhaps she could be looking in the mirror because in recent weeks, National has hardly been a model of crystalline clarity. On RNZ this morning Collins was calling for the scrapping of all vaccine certificates and mandates once we hit 90% double dose vaccination. Yet in recent weeks, Chris Bishop, National’s Covid spokesperson has been indicating that vaccine certificates and employment mandates will be, and should be, part of our new Covid landscape...
