Update #1 ·

GAME CHANGER; are you on board? Yay or Nay?!?

Personally, I'm getting tired of signing petitions for the same issue over and over again. We have successfully delivered STOP THE IMPORT OF DOW'S GMO COTTON TO SOUTH AFRICA ! ~ 1,402 people have helped this campaign. So that's done and dusted.
But, there's a new issue that must be objected to, and soo many more to come.

IT'S TIME FOR A GAME CHANGER; How about using one list of signatures as a COMPREHENSIVE OBJECTION TO ALL UNPROVEN AND HARMFUL GMO IN SOUTH AFRICA; in whichever form thrown at us. To do this, WE WILL NEED YOUR PERMISSION TO PROTEST VIA PETITION IN YOUR NAME.
--------------------
Tell us if you agree or not to re-using your signature here on this petition, on future objection submissions about GMO issues?
PLEASE LEAVE YOUR COMMENT BELOW
. Give us a simple YES or NO. With each new issue that arises you will be notified, and given the opportunity to opt out. For those who prefer Avaaz a similar Comprehensive petition will be created there and both will be collated with duplications removed.
--------------------
In other words we're asking you to grant us proxy to submit future petitions without going through the rigmarole of collecting signatures from scratch. This means less petitions for you to digitally sign. Honestly, 1400 signatures is a small drop in the ocean. With each new issue that arises you will be notified, and given the opportunity to opt out.

(**For those who prefer Avaaz a new petition will be created there for each and every issue to be objected. Avaaz does not have the functionality to notify you via email or allow update posts- for you to opt out. Both sites signatures will be collated **)

This ever GROWING NUMBER OF PETITIONERS WOULD FORCE THEM TO SIT UP, TAKE NOTICE AND TAKE ACTION IN RESPONSE TO OUR CONCERNS.
(South African government, Biotech Corporates, Big Agriculture, Production & Processing Industries, Retail and Trade Sectors)

These Genetically Engineered Biotech guys are sneaky and persistent. They keep pushing their luck with variations on the same theme from every possible angle. Dupont Pioneer's Maize in Jan, Dow's Cotton Feb. and the latest: Dupont Pioneer's Maize, (again) for field release. Their strategy is to wear us down, lose interest, and always dancing to their tune. They wish to push through as many GMO applications possibly before RSA elections.

Will need 50% approval from 1401 of you before going ahead. Otherwise we’ll have to create a new petition objecting each and every new angle that these GMO Crazed sectors dream up.
