You are warmly invited to an anti-GM update and strategy session in London on Saturday 22nd January 2011. This day long national gathering will bring together a wide range of people campaigning on GM related issues, from climate activists to NGO representatives, community food growers to beekeepers.
Genetically Modified crops are on the rise within the EU, and the coalition government have declared that they intend to be the most pro GM this country has ever seen. This is the perfect opportunity to get up to speed with the latest in GM developments, and explore how you and your organisation can be part of the UK’s emerging radical land and food movement. The day starts
off with briefing sessions designed to give you clear data and an authoritative context on issues that are likely to be stories in 2011. UN
experts on agro ecology will also be presenting research into alternatives.
The afternoon will focus on sharing and developing campaign ideas and
networking. This will include a strategic discussion on how we can effectively counter misinformation and lobbying, as well evolving new and existing campaigns.
GM: Gathering Momentum is organised by Stop GM in conjunction with the Genetic Engineering Network. The free event will be hosted in London from 10 - 6pm, and lunch will be provided.
