A mighty shift in how people-power can wrest control away from unconscious central government and place it back in the hands of localised community and conscious consumers is taking place here in Northland, New Zealand.
Not since the heady days of the mid 1980s when localised groups and councils ‘made Nuclear Free Zones across this country, have we seen such a resurgence as ordinary and extraordinary NZers through dedication and vision, mobilise to make Northland, NZ a GMO Free Zone.
Listen to an impassioned Zelka Grammer on how GE Free Northland with the help of Maori Iwi, localised growers and supporters plus District Councillors are investigating local options for regulating or prohibiting GMO land use in the Northland Peninsular.
The recent High Court ruling that has overturned ERMA's (Environmental Risk Management Authority) decision to accept applications from AgResearch to release GM animals throughout New Zealand is another step towards sanity and keeping NZs prized ‘Clean Green image from being tarnished by unethical procedures.
