SUPPORT A G.E. FREE NEW ZEALAND

Vigil in Rotorua

1 September (Saturday)12pm - 2 September 4pm (Sunday)

Rotorua Energy Events Centre, Queens Drive, Government Gardens, Rotorua, New Zealand

Organised by The Awareness Party

Why Rotorua?  That's where a global biotech conference is taking place, and their keynote speaker is the VP of Biotechnology from Monsanto.  http://www.abic2012.com/

We need a massive show of support for a clean green GE free New Zealand, with no field trials. Show Monsanto, DuPont, Dow and the others that their business is not welcome here.

Come in car loads!  Be there for one day or both.

Bring musical instruments, drums, fancy dress - anything to make these awareness building days lots of fun.  If possible let us know if you are coming.
