Target: Chinese President Xi Jinping
Goal: Stop the rampant spread of GMO contamination in the food supply.
Chinese farmers are illegally growing unprecedented amounts of genetically modified corn. Reports show that 93 percent of samples taken last year from corn fields in five counties in Liaoning province tested positive for GMO contamination. In addition, almost 100 percent of samples of seeds that were taken from markets, as well as samples of corn-based foods, also tested positive for GMO contamination.
China has spent billions of dollars to develop GMO crops and may be losing control over them.
This is dangerous because the government will not be able to control the food supply, which is distributed across the globe. If this continues, most of the food supply will be made up of GMO-contaminated food and many farmers may not even know they are being sold GMO-contaminated seeds.
The government must take an active role in combating this environmental health disaster by investigating corn breeding companies and destroying these illegal GMO seeds, to protect both farmers and the international public. Urge China to step up and stop the spread of GMO-contaminated seeds.
Dear President Xi Jinping,
Chinese farmers are illegally growing genetically modified corn and may not even know it, thanks to your government’s lack of supervision and regulation of corn breeding companies like Monsanto. These illegal GMO seeds have spread to a majority of the food supply in certain areas of China, and this is creating a potential environmental and health nightmare.
I urge you to take a stand against this brewing disaster by investigating corn breeding companies and destroying these illegal GMO seeds.
[Your Name Here]
