WASHINGTON- The Global GMO Free Coalition launched today, May 20, 2014, bringing together GMO Free groups, including the Organic Consumers Association, across 6 continents with a partner membership of over 4.5 Million people.

The Global GMO Free Coalition, with over 60 partner organizations, is the first globally coordinated network to take on the genetically modified (GM) food and crop industry head on in both the media and in public and government advocacy areas. The aim of the coalition is to cut through Biotech industry propaganda and to provide independent information that leads to responsible actions from food regulatory bodies in countries worldwide.

Henry Rowlands, the Global GMO Free Coalition Coordinator, stated Tuesday; "The problem with GMOs and their associated pesticides is that they were never independently tested before being released into the environment. This has led to both consumers and independent scientists being seriously concerned about the possible harm they are doing to both the environment and human health."

The Global GMO Free Coalition will provide journalists and governments worldwide with a serious and well-respected source of independent information. Journalists will be welcomed to contact the Coalition 24 hours a day for unique quotes and reactions from the top Global experts in the field of GMOs and their associated pesticides.

The Coalition will also coordinate expert speakers to attend public and private events wherever they are held around the Globe. These speakers will present serious sustainable alternatives to GMOs and will deconstruct Biotech industry propaganda.

The Global GMO Free Coalition partners are from countries around the world, including the U.S., UK, Russia, Iran, Chile, Taiwan, the Netherlands, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, South Africa, New Caledonia, Ghana, Georgia and Ireland.

"This is a global issue that deserves a global approach. The GMO industry is attempting to take over the world's food supply with untested, harmful products and we will not let this happen. We invite more organizations from around the world to join us," Rowlands concluded.
