1) SAFeAGE recently did some random testing of food products and the results were of deep concern. We are asking your support for GM labelling, by calling the food producers and retailers concerned (and any others you would like to call) and tell them that you will not be buying their products unless and untilll THEY LABEL them with the GM content. (See details below).
2) The Agriculture Research Council has applied to the Registrar of GMOs to commercialise the first GM potato in South Africa. We have formed a petition to stop it and we ask that you sign it and pass it onto as many people as possible. Go to the website www.safeage.org and click on ‘Sign the petition’.
