Letter to the Minister - 30th May 2012

I am writing to you in my capacity as president of The International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside.
As you may know, I am a Polish patriot and have spent the last ten years doing my best to help secure a lasting and sustainable future for the Polish countryside and for the farming community upon which Poland’s rich biodiversity of nature depends.
This has set me at odds with such regimes as GM technology, intense factory farming and US style prairie monocultures. None of these have any place in the hearts of those who take pride in their countryside and recognise the incalculable value of its natural wealth.

Fight to Keep Poland GMO Free Reaches New Turning Point

Jadwiga Lopata (2002) has had a busy year so far, holding mass picnics, organizing online poster design contests, staging press conferences, and dressing up as Frankenstein potatoes at street demonstrations to keep genetically modified crops out of Poland. The events are successfully educating people about the risks associated with growing and eating genetically modified foods.

Applying for 8 GM opt-out’s

ICPPC has received confirmation today from the Ministry of the Environment that a letter stating Poland’s intention of applying for 8 GM opt-out’s has been sent to the European Commission in Brussels.

The opt-outs cover all varieties of GM maize developed for use in agriculture.

This result comes after Association for a GMO Free Poland and the International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside raised the alarm that the Polish government was failing to act on the GMO opt out clause.

The opt-out, whose application deadline is October 3rd 2015, enables individual EU Countries to ban GM crop plantings. According to European Commission directives, the grounds for establishing a ban must then be considered by the corporations intending to market GM seeds within European Union Countries.

The Festival of Nature and Culture – Say NO to GMO – Save Traditional Seeds

The festival catalysed three days (Dec. 9,10,11) of hugely varied activities in support of maintaining the beauty and diversity of the Polish countryside – and an uncorrupted GMO free food chain.

Ninety events/happenings were launched during these three days, including giant puppets, dedicated jazz and pop concerts, poetry readings, workshops, lectures, food tastings and film shows. All in all a great display of determination by Polish citizens to highlight their rejection of government and corporate attempts to force GM food down their throats and into their much loved countryside.

Reports are flowing in from the various centres of activity – and it looks as though the local press had lots of unusual photo opportunities to keep them busy! ICPPC's co-directors tackled three engagements in one day in Krakow, giving talks on the imperative of becoming engaged in 'local food' community centred initiatives, as against 'global food' supermarket style consumerism: definitely the best way of knowing what your eating! These sessions took place in a culture house, a restaurant and a leading jazz club... where the audience appeared amazed to find even their music guaranteed GMO Free!

Hello all!
