Dear United Nations,
Since the dawn of humanity people have been planting seeds and cultivating the land, passing down knowledge, diversity and environmental heritage from one generation to the next.
Recently the rise of many corporations who use GMO's (Genetically Modified seeds) has put this unique and profoundly important process under threat. Putting this process in jeopardy is also to jeopardize the long term future of many families, species and a healthy planetary system that nourishes all, not just the pockets of those whose agenda is profit without a sustainable practice.
All over the world the environment is breaking down at an alarming rate and one way to tackle this problem is to insure that an alien species is not introduced without proper testing, wisdom and foresight.
This is a petition to demand that a worldwide moratorium takes place on GMO's in agriculture until more stringent and independent biosafety studies are completed.
