National Day of Fast? | brinjal.org | Locations for Jan 30 Fast
Thousands of people all over India and the world are joining the
National Day of Fast on Jan 30th - Gandhiji's anniversary. From Kerala
to Delhi and Bengal to Gujarat in Inda, and Baton Rouge to Boston in
the US (see list of events/locations below), they are opposing the
introduction of genetically modified (GM) Bt Brinjal into the Indian
markets. GM foods like Bt brinjal pose a large threat to health,
agriculture and environment, and they need to be strongly opposed in
order to preserve farmers' self-reliance and control over seeds and
agriculture, and protect the consumers' access to safe healthy food.
You can take part in the National Day of Fast from wherever you are,
from home or office or street! Please click onhttp://brinjal.org/to
sign up for the fast or lighting a candle.
More than 800 people have already joined online, in addition to the
thousands who cannot access the web but plan to join on the street.
Consumers, scientists, medical community, public servants, and even
government agencies are joning at this historic juncture. It is your
turn to join the effort to protect all our food.
Bt Brinjal is made by inserting a toxin-producing gene from the Bt
bacteria into the brinjal plant. India is the first country where the
seed companies are trying to introduce Bt brinjal, and indeed the
first time a directly consumed vegetable is being modified. Animals
grazing in Bt cotton fields have died or faced serious illnesses, and
introducing this technology into our own food is very risky for
health, bio-safety and environment.
Groups organizing fasts and candle light vigils to Stop Bt Brinjal in
various towns and cities have sent us their locations that are
appended below. If you plan to organize a gathering on jan 30 please
send an email to aidsite@gmail .com to be listed on the brinjal.org
site with the rest of the locations.
The brinjal.org site is carrying daily updates of the evolving
response to BT Brinjal through National Consultations and actions
prior to Jan 30 as well. Several state governments representing the
bulk of the brinjal growing states have already decided to say no to

That is dumb, why suffer even for one day?
Just refuse to buy GM Food products or support them. If there is no
value to the vender the products will just dry up into dust and blow
away. Problem solved forever.
If you do not see the point to my post and still want to fast, would you
then send me all the food you will not eat and the recipes for the meals
so that I may enjoy them. Thank you.- Hide quoted text -
