Outcome after the address at the Airforce technical College
Greetings from "My Right to Safe Food"
The platform provided by Air Commodore in Bangalore West, to screen the film Poison on the Platter to over 300 officers from all over India is much appreciated.
Thereafter followed by my talk for 20 mins on Indian versus Global scenario on GM foods and a healthy spade of Q&A's.
The outcome of yesterday's session:
1. Conduct workshops for Airforce command women on My Right to Safe Foods
2. Film to be shown across Airforce schools like Kendriya Vidyalaya and Central schools to educate teachers and children.
3. Air force canteens to outsource natural groceries from local farmers. My right to Safe food to provide links of network of farmer groups.
4. Airforce Bangalore to boycott GM foods (products as per the consumer alert list provided) for their canteens.
Last but not the least, to start with the keen interest shown by Air Commodore's wife on kitchen gardening, we will help her transform her garden into a model kitchen for others to follow - all technical inputs and organic vegetable seeds will be provided and supported by Annadana.
By lending us favorable support gives further impetus to carry the message of MY RIGHT TO SAFE FOOD to wider reach of audience. We hope to keep this momentum of concerns on GM foods going. We request all to continue to persevere in this march towards a GE FREE INDIA.
