Launching our Film Don’t Let the Gene out of the Bottle
Our short film Don’t Let the Gene Out of the Bottle is a powerful tool to convey the seriousness of permanently corrupting and replacing nature’s gene pool. It presents real world examples of GMOs that have the capacity to cause catastrophes. There is a form of GE bacteria that could theoretically end terrestrial plant life, another variety that could alter weather patterns, and (in the final version) a lab enhanced GE virus that is far more dangerous than COVID-19.
Don’t Let the Gene Out of the Bottle inspires powerful emotions and a desire to take action. It will serve as a focal point for coalition building, public education, and recruitment of advocates. A substantial number of organizations will participate in a coordinated launch so that we will reach a wide viewership. The film’s call to action will bring people to our site, where they can sign up to receive additional education and advocacy training.
This will launch our initial grassroots actions to pass laws and resolutions at the local and state levels and to use these campaigns to educate the public and media about this issue.
