India's Minister for Monsanto

To Rahul Gandhi:

Veerapa Moily has shown that he cannot be trusted as Environment Minister because he cares more about profits than the planet. As a citizen of India, I call on you to give this portfolio to someone who will protect the land and people of India and recommit to a farming policy that benefits people rather than GM companies.

India's Minister for Monsanto

A flood of genetically modified crops will soon sweep across India if the Environment Minister gets his way. Minister Moily is meant to protect India’s fields and forests, not mollify Monsanto, and its up to us to ensure he does!

We've done it before! Citizens concerned about health and farmers furious about corporate bullying stopped Monsanto’s GM brinjal. But now Moily has convened a committee that could give the green light to 120 types of transgenic crops. Moily has already made many enemies by agreeing destructive forest and coal projects, so if we act now, we can get him sacked.

With elections looming, Rahul Gandhi is under real pressure to show voters strong leadership and ditch this minister for Monsanto. Let’s act fast, before Moily says yes to experimental crops that put us all at risk. Sign now, and share widely, when 50,000 people are on board, we’ll take the message straight to Gandhi.
