Genetic Engineering Newspaper call for volunteers!

3. Genetic Engineering Newspaper call for volunteers!

NWRAGE has volunteered to help produce a GE newspaper for the March 12th, 2004 Genetic Engineering Action Network (GEAN) Conference in San Francisco. The newspaper will cover the GE issues including sections on food, animals and people. It will also promote BioDevastation, the largest anti-GE gathering in the country, occuring in San Francisco as well on June 8th, 2004.

Our plan is to print 10,000 newspapers and distribute them to anti-GE groups when they gather in San Francisco. The papers will also go into San Francisco coffee shops, laundry marts, and colleges. We feel placing these papers directly in the city where BioDevastation is occuring will have an energizing effect on the city and increase community action.

You can help in two ways!

A. If you are comfortable editing or have media experience, we need people to help with preparing the paper's text. This process will start on Monday, March 1, 2004. Contact Jim at  dna@riseup.net or call 503-239-6841

B. The newspaper will cost $1000.00 for 10,000 copies. We've raised $250.00 so far. If you can give

$10.00 = 100 papers
$20.00 = 200 papers
$50.00 = 500 papers

This is a great way to help get the word out on genetic engineering. Please mail checks to
