Submission to the Review of the Gene Technology Act 2000

We make the following points:

  1. The Act has by any measure failed to protect anyone not wanting their property and crops contaminated with GMOs.
  2. Concerns of organic and conventional agriculture have not been acted upon - the GM industry was advised years ago of the potential contamination disasters - there have occurred now.
  3. Control measures to contain GMOs are demonstrably inadequate, if not entirely lacking.
  4. Those who cause GMO contamination of crops logically should be fully liable to make good damage caused by it. Anything else would be un-Australian.

Yours sincerely Kim Hack and Penny Mossop
