Who controls the future of your food?
GMO OMG explores the systematic corporate takeover and potential loss of humanity’s most precious and ancient inheritance: seeds. Director Jeremy Seifert investigates how loss of seed diversity and corresponding laboratory assisted genetic alteration of food affects his young children, the health of our planet, and freedom of choice everywhere. GMO OMG follows one family’s struggle to live and eat without participating in an unhealthy, unjust, and destructive food system. In GMO OMG, the encroaching darkness of unknown health and environmental risks, chemical toxins, and food monopoly meets with the light of a growing global movement to take back what we have lost. Has the global food system been irrevocably hijacked? Is there still time to reclaim its purity, protect biodiversity and save ourselves?
Join us as we explore these important questions and discuss what we can do to take back a piece of food democracy here in Massachusetts by passing legislation that would require the labeling of all genetically engineered seeds and food ingredients.
Event Hosted by Mass. GMO labeling champions:
Representative Todd Smola (R- Palmer) Rep. Ellen Story (D- Amherst) Deirdre Cummings (MASSPIRG) Dean Cycon (Dean's Beans Organic Coffee) Pat Fiero (MoveOn.org) Jack Kittredge, (NOFA/Mass)
