Ämne: GMO – free Poland
Dear Senate Bogdan Borusewicz,
My name is Bjorn Marten and I’m working for the NGO GEIST with sustainable system design and attitude changes towards a sustainable lifestyle.
My conlusion after 35 years of experience development sustainable system solutions, is that organic farming and recycling of organic waste from metropolitan to rural areas with Biogas technology, is an axiom for a global sustainable development. No way mankind can survive on an artificial life based on GMO – crops tied to use of chemical pesticides and chemical fertilizer.
Linear flows of fertilizer will keep on creating dead bottoms and declining fish populations in the Baltic Sea. Chemical pesticides spread all over the world. Inuit mothers are feeding their babies with breast milk contaminated with residues from chemical pesticides. Our drinking water is also get contaminated with those pesticides. Brazil use more pesticides than any other country and thousands of people are dying due to direct exposure. Once introduced, GMO crops can spread without control. GMO – crops can create malfunctions in our bodies that can undermine the complex systems maintaining our life. Not only human beings are threatened. E.g. Butterflies can die after eating GMO crops. For further reading about the problems linked to GMO –crops I strongly recommend you visit the Soil Association’s homepage https://www.soilassociation.org/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=SqDvBO1pyEU%3D&tabid=390
If you need more information about how introduction of biogas technology and recycling of organic waste to farming land can pave the way for introduction of 100% organic farming, visit our home page www.geistsweden.eu
Good luck with creating a GMO – free Poland. It will bring hope for the survival of humanity.

Temat: GMO Seeds in Poland
Email as sent to contacts provided on the legalization of GMOs in Poland:
I hope this email finds you well.
I understand that ‘The Seeds Act’ will be voted upon by the Senate any day after passing through the Lower House. I also understand that the ‘GMO Act’ was blocked after a public outcry- a commendable action considering the issue in question.
For it is truly worrying that our food chains- the vital interdependent links keeping our society alive- should be contaminated by biotechnological techniques. Although companies which have been/will modify our food promise that these changes are for the best, the public don’t think so and have resisted again and again such proposals. The public are happy eating natural, non-modified food.
I will not go into the dangers and potential threats of GMOs. These are very well documented and accessible to everyone. From the potential risks to human health to patented seeds and from organic produce contamination to cross-border movement, the cons largely outweigh the pros.
In light of all of this, the omitting of the sentence: “No GM seeds will be permitted on the official seeds list” from the Act is truly confusing and worrying. The Polish people have made their voices heard for they understand that this can be a pandora’s box which will then be impossible to close.
On behalf of the Malta Organic Agricultural Movement, of which I am an executive member, I kindly urge you to revise the Act to insert the omitted sentence aforementioned or stall the process of passing the Act in Senate.
Such an Act approved in Poland can (and will) have an effect on other countries including Malta. Thus it is our duty to actively participate in this democratic process.
We thank you in advance for you consideration,
Malta Organic Agricultural Movement (MOAM)

I would like to express concern for the safe future of the Polish environment and high quality of food free from the threat of GMO contamination. Poland is well placed to maintain its priceless supremacy in sustainable food production and high biodiversity without copying the mistakes of the over intensification of agriculture made by other countries. Please ensure that any Acts are passed only to promote the use of local seed and to ban all planting and trade in GM seeds.

Temat: No Seeds Act
Dear Prime Minister Tusk,
Please do all you can to ensure that the Polish Senate does not proceed with the Seeds Act. It would be a terrible and irrevocable mistake for Poland to allow genetically modified (GM) plants to be grown in Poland.
The effects of GM are totally unpredictable. The aim seems to be to put food production into the hands of big corporations and force food producers into their regime, which has been shown to be a disaster for the environment and for traditional, time-honoured modes of food production.
Who wants this? Presumably just the big GM corporations and others that they bully.
Moreover, this is an international issue. GM seeds do not recognise national boundaries.

Temat: The Seeds Act
I read about the revival of the Seeds Act in Poland with dismay, with your intention to drop the phrase „No GM seeds will be permitted on the official seeds list”. You intend to include ‘It is prohibited to trade GM seeds’. The latter inclusion will fool no-one. You must realise the public’s opposition in the EU to the introduction of GM crops into Poland and the rest of Europe. I also read that you now propose to restrict ‘regional’ seeds to 10% of the market which will put food supply firmly into the hands of large agribusiness corporations and shut down many small and independent suppliers. This goes against everything that the majority of the public want to see as regards food supply.
The United Nations Environmental Programme’s report in March of this year on the Global Threat to Honey Bees makes a very clear statement on the destruction of the bee (and other wildlife) population and lays the blame very firmly at the feet of pesticides and other agrichemicals, (with stark implications for GM). The changes to the Seed Act will have the effect of turning the Polish countryside into a no-go area for bees and other pollinators with all that that entails. It is a very short-sighted and misplaced policy.
I would be grateful if you could think again.

Honorary Chairman of the Senate,
I am an American psychologist who moved to Poland two years ago. I must say that among the foremost reasons for my move was the healthier lifestyle I feel exists in Poland.
Now, with the threat of GMO coming to Poland, I must say that the situation is changed and I no longer feel safe here.
Food in my former country, USA, has been virtually destroyed by Monsanto’s vicious, probably illegal, and certainly immoral actions prostituting the food supply in the name of profit. The actual effects of their actions as well as how they represent the way things are done in USA reinforces my decision to move here.
However, should GMO enter Poland and create its irreversible, terrible effects, another nail in the coffin of right action will have been hammered.
Whatever is within your power to stop this before it is too late will be not only appreciated but will surely constitute 'right action.’
Though I am a psychologist, my experience with ancient, revived Vedic organic farming techniques, gives me the authority to know from what I speak. Besides, I have been known to eat much and often!

Here my email:
Sehr geehrter Herr Premieminister Tusk, sehr geehrter Herr Senator Borusewicz, als Euer hoffentlich geschätzter Nachbar in Deutschland mache ich und viele meiner Mitbürger, wie auch viele Landsleute von Ihnen, uns berechitgte Sorgen über Euer Vorhaben GMO in Polen zuzulassen, und den Anbau zu fördern, zu legalisieren. Wie Sie wissen hat sich unsere Bundesregierung stellvetrtetend für uns Bürger, und viele Kommunen und Politiker gegen den Anbau und die Verbreitung von GMO in Deutschland (Ausnahme: Mais MON..), nach hartem Kampf ausgesprochen. Und wir als Verbraucher und die meisten Landwirte fühlen sich damit wohl, ja haben langfristig sogar wesentliche Vorteile: sie sind nicht abhängig von der meist amerikanischen GM-Industrie geworden. WENN Sie GMO in Polen zulassen unterdrücken Sie die Meinung der meisten Bürger, und zumindest der doch in Polen -noch mehr als bei uns- noch vorhandenen kleinen und mittleren landwirtschaftlichen Betriebe. Ich prophezeie Ihnen: wenn Sie GMO zulassen wird unsere Landwirtschaft und der Handel für deren Produkte, schon mittelfristig wesentliche Vorteile gegenüber den Produkten aus Polen haben!
Machen Sie Ihr Land nicht abhängig von den USA. China, Argentinien, Indien haben sich schon durch GMO von Monsanto.., ihren Boden durch noch mehr Spritzmittel, erwiesenermasen weniger landwirtschaftlichem Ertrag mit GMO-Pflanzen, in diese Abhängigkeit begeben.
Mit freundlichem Gruss,
I strongly support the use of traditional seeds and the existence of a GMO Free Poland & Europe.
Thinking about the future I only can encourage you to wisely develop laws that helps your/our people to freely and safely grow crops without using GMO seeds, plants or animals.
Be honest and loyal to your country, don’t follow big firms money’s interests.

Dear Mr Borusewicz
Please do not pass the Seeds Act and take your country down the route of GMOs. All world authorities who are properly versed both in biology and in farming agree that over the past 30 years of expensive endeavour GM technology has produced nothing of unequivocal value, and nothing that could not have been achieved more safely and decisively by more traditional means. Contrary to the rhetoric, GM technology is not intended primarily to serve humanity, or particular communities, and to minimize collateral damage. It is simply part of the industrialization process, by which farming is made more profitable for a minority, and power is transferred from people at large to a few transnational commercial companies — the precise opposite of what democracy ought to mean. The science is not ultra-modern, as the brochures pretend. It is seriously old-fashioned – rooted in the 18th century Enlightenment conceit that living organisms and ecosystems can be exhaustively understood and minutely controlled, as if they were simple machines. Biology has moved on a great deal since then.
Truly informed people worldwide are waking up to the fact that the world as a whole can best be fed by small mixed farms, which are highly productive, sustainable, and adaptable. Poland already has the agricultural structure that in truth, all the world needs. Your agriculture, indeed, is one of your greatest assets. Please don’t wreck it in the interests of short-term commerce and technological fashion!
With all best wishes

Dear Prime Minister
It is regional seeds that will ultimately triumph over climate change, not GMOs.
The Green Revolution bought the human race time, it did not solve the underlying problem, in fact by keeping more people alive it exacerbated it, albeit with the best possible intentions. Agribusiness and seed monopolies do not even have the benefit of the best intentions – on the contrary, they represent the worst kind of avaricious colonialism.
Poland should be leading the way in opposing the influence of avaricious outsiders, not succumbing tamely to it for the personal gain of elites.

Data: 8 lipca 2011, 14:05:46, Temat: Please resist GMO in Poland!
Dear Prime Minister Tusk,
As a concerned citizen of Poland, I am strongly against the introduction of GMO seeds and crops under any means in Poland. Having lived a majority of my life in the United Stated of America, I understand the incredible threat that GMO poses to a healthy society. Industrial agriculture, monoculture, and genetic modification are a serious concern of mine, and as a leader of your country, I implore you to stop the Seeds Act with its revised GMO clause from passing through the Senate! Please do not participate in making your country a less healthy one, with limited access to the variety and abundance of traditional Polish crops. Please do what you can to stop agri-culture from becoming agri-business as it is in the USA.
In fact, the countries suffering from the effects of GMO and other industrialized agriculture are now trying to turn around their situations and become more like Poland is and has been for centuries, by buying from local farms and urban gardens. So you can see that this Seeds Act would not be step forward, but back… we are already ahead in Poland. Let’s keep it that way and show the world that we value real food.
I look forward to thanking you for your help in this matter.

I am writing this email as an EU citizen who deplores the idea of allowing GM seeds and foodstuffs to become legal within the continent. Poland has a fantastic tradition of producing good wholesome food in a natural way, with much of it being at or near organic standards. Clearly there may be a strict business case for doing this in the short term but our food supplies are far more important than just business.
I am a farmer myself, but I would not consider for one second the idea of using GM based crops or of producing them on my land. The only way we should be farming is in tune with the ecology of the environment we live in. We only have one planet and we cannot afford to be causing more damage to it, rather we should be spending our time and effort trying to heal the damage already done. Food should be grown of a quality that is fit for people to eat, rather than from maximizing potential production of calories. You are in danger of losing your splendid and enviable natural heritage for perceived market advantages – please do not allow the seeds act in its current form to be passed into law. Remember, the producers of GM seeds owe their allegiance to corporate stockholders, NOT the farmers or people of Poland and Europe.

We have been informed that some Polish deciders seem willing to allow the cultivation of genetically modified plants in Poland.
Our organisations have been asking to have reliable data on the GMOs, in vain. All the data are communicated by the very firms which would benefit from having the permission to sell and promote their products.
Yet, all the feed back we have from various countries in the world show that such cultivation entails problems : resistance to herbicides, contamination of natural weeds, and even cross-pollination between GMOs !
More worrying the last communication from researchers of the University of Sherbrook (Quebec, Canada) : for the first time it is proven that the pesticides found in the blood of foetuses, and of pregnant (or not) women are associated the GM foods. The sampled population lives in an industrial area, so has no contact with cultivated fields or agro-industries.
We felt it was our duty to make you aware of the health consequences of GMO cultivation. We hope you will consider using the precautionary principle in the circumstance.

I am writing you to oppose The Seeds Act currently being considered by your government. This act would allow GMO seeds to be listed on your official seed lists and permit their cultivation, in spite of the manipulative language in the measure that appears to prohibit trading of GMO seeds. I am opposed to this and opposed to the entire measure. Eighty percent of the EU population is opposed to GMOs in their food, and the actions of a country like yours affects us all. Please keep GMO crops out of Poland! I am also opposed to your efforts to limit non-hybrid and traditional seeds. The ability to trade and grow these varieties is a vital part of Poland’s and Europe’s cultural heritage!
