Here in Hawaii, place of more endangered and endemic species than anywhere - there are more unregulated GMO field tests than anywhere else as well! We are growing the newest branch of the radically progressive 107 year old National Farmers Union- advocating for family farmers, fishers and rural communities through its grasroots policy and 3-fold mission of Education, Cooperation and Legislation. The GMO and Biotechnolgy policy is conservative and provides us with the mandate to address this issue form NFU's farmer-authoritative perspective.
Ireland should be a GMO-free biosafety reserve to safeguard Europe's biodiversity, food safety and food security for future generations. As GM crops risk disease and harvest failure, Europe needs the capacity to recover, develop and propagate agricultural seeds in a secure GM-free zone. Ireland is the best location.
