If you eat, see this!
Tweed Richmond Organic Producers Organisation (TROPO) and the Rainbow Region Organic Market, in cooperation with byronchild magazine, present the Lismore premiere of The Future of Food this Friday, May 26, at the Lismore Workers Club at 7pm.
Deborah Koons Garcia (she married guitarist Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead) produced and directed The Future of Food, a chilling investigation into the genetically modified organisms that masquerade as food and which have filled grocery store shelves for the past decade. And whose bacteria, virus and antibiotic-filled pollen has contaminated organic and conventional non-GMO crops around the world.
My whole point in making this film was to create something that anyone could watch and understand. People need to understand this issue so they can speak up, said Garcia.
Through spin and lobbying, biotech companies have legally harassed and sued thousands of farmers for patent infringement when their GMO crop pollen is unknowingly transported by wind or insects into their non-GMO fields. Amazing.
The film will be immediately followed by a panel discussion with David Forrest and Dave Roby of TROPO.
Tickets are $15/12 from Rainbow Wholefoods in North Lismore and Nimbin, and from the Audio Room in Conway Street, Lismore.
