Food, GM and synthetic biology – November 11th 2013


12:00 am

It’s hard to be indifferent to the politics of food, and that may be why the anti-GM food campaign was so successful. But despite environmental concerns and accumulating evidence of health risks, the GM corporations continue to push this technology. Their aim is to intensify industrial agriculture and their control over the entire food chain. Now with ‘synthetic biology’, an extreme form of genetic engineering, scientists aim to industrialise life itself. Come and discuss the way forward on these issues.
Introductions from

  • Jyoti Fernandes – La Via Campesina UK
  • Laura Pearson – March Against Monsanto London
  • Helena Paul – Econexus

There will be an exhibition of classic posters on the politics of technology, produced by Christine Halsall of Chimera Publications.

At 6pm there will be a discussion group at Fairly Square on the politics of technology, to which all are welcome. For more info contact, or visit Facebook: Breaking the Frame.
