BIOSAFETY NEGOTIATIONS BLOCKED

URGENT ACTION!

As you may have heard New Zealand has been obstructing the biosafety negotiations in Montreal.

It may already be too late but PLEASE, PLEASE if you possibly can e-mail the New Zealand delegates and ask them to stop acting as proxies for GM exporters and to start taking a constructive attitude.

There's a sample e-mail to send below.

Please send your comments to:

jane.coombs@mfat.govt.nz

and

sarah.wynn-williams@mfat.govt.nz

For more on what NZ's delegates have been up to in Montreal see:

Thank you for your support and please circulate this urgently to all your friends, especially any you have in New Zealand.

EXAMPLE MESSAGE

Second Conference of the Parties, Montreal, Canada

We ask New Zealand to:

Stop Blocking the Birth of an Effective Biosafety Regime

Please respect the serious, science-based environmental and public-health concerns that motivated the emergence of the Biodiversity Convention and the Biosafety Protocol and stop obstructing this opportunity to take the Protocol forward.

This meeting cost $1 million and, thanks to the current attitude of the New Zealand delegation, nothing of any substance looks likely to be achieved. Such a result will be not just bad for biosafety but will do serious and lasting damage to the good name of New Zealand.

We ask you as New Zealand's delegates to re-think your attitude, to stop blocking the emerging consensus around rules to implement Article 18-2(a) and to rejoin the countries that are working to build an effective biosafety regime.

This change in attitude is needed urgently.

Thank you.
