Genetically modified organisms are being imported into the Port of Newcastle. This includes feed for chickens that are consumed by our local residents.
Scientists do not know the longterm effects of genetic engineering and yet the government does not act in our interests in allowing the spread of GE material to continue.
Newcastle residents have come together to raise the issues of GE and its effects in our community. The Newcastle Residents Against Genetic Engineering (NRAGE) meet regularly at the Octapod (corner of Auckland and King Streets in Newcastle).
