Greenpeace Poland took part in this demonstration.


19 March 2009 This is Edyta Jaroszewska. Drawn after a photo. The sign says; " Hungerstrike for a GMO-free Poland".

Edyta Jaroszewska, 42 year old organic farmer and chairperson of the Organic Farmers Association, started fasting for a GMO Free Poland. Two days ago Danute Pilarska, another organic farmer and chairperson of The Organic Farmer's Union, joined her. Yesterday, both women, together with other members of the Coalition for a GMO Free Poland, joined a meeting of the Polish government's Agricultural Committee in the Senate in Warsaw. The committee was discussing the future of GMO in Poland. After a few hours of debate Edyta concluded "There's no political will within the Polish government to stop corporations from illegal planting of the GM maize variety MON 810 - and to ensure that Poland is kept GMO free. This opens the possibility of the widespread planting of MON 810 during this year. So we don't have another choice other than to stay here and fight!" Today, the fasting ladies, supported by other members of the Coalition, have been protesting in front of the Ministry of Agriculture in Warsaw.

Letter to be send to the Polish Prime minister

The Prime Minister - Donald Tusk
The Chancellery of the Prime Minister
Al. Ujazdowskie 1/3
00-583 Warszawa,  Poland

Your Excellency, 

Given that,

  • a growing body of scientific evidence published in scientific journals over the last few years has established that there will be detrimental environmental effects of GM insect-resistant maize, if it is grown on a large-scale in Europe.*
  • a record of contamination cases and scientific studies indicate that GM crops will jeopardize conventional and organic farming. Moreover, as no harmonized laws exist in the European Union rendering the agrochemical companies liable for contamination caused to non-GM farmers, polluters never pay damaged farmers;
  • in December last year, all 27 member states unanimously called for a review of the present GMO approval system. In particular they called for a substantial improvement of the risk assessment of GM crops, the harmonization of GMOs and pesticide risk assessment, the consideration of socio-economic aspects as well as local environmental and agronomic characteristics.
  • Increasing scientific evidence demonstrates that GMOs pose unpredictable and unexpected consequences for our health and the environment;

That is the reason why we ask you together with Danuta and Edita, who are fasting for our future and are very brave, following

: 1. To reinforce the BAN of all GM plants and - and as a fast-track - ban the
maize MON 810 in Poland. **

2. To introduce labelling of all GM foods and gradually withdraw these foods
from the market.

3. To introduce a BAN of GM animal feeds.

4. To use social/public funds (tax payer's money) to support traditional and
organic farming.

Sincerely, ....................................................



Scientific evidence documenting the negative impacts of genetically modified (GM) foods on human and

animal health and the environment

GM foods and crops were virtually excluded from the European Union in the 1990s by scientific

objections and consumer concerns. But now they are once again being strongly promoted in Europe by

the biotechnology industry, putting our health and environment at risk. cut
