EVERYTHING FOR AND BY THE PEOPLE
« For the Honour of France, for the sacred interests of Humanity »
(Napoleon the Great, 17th ventôse Year VIII – Saturday 8th March 1800)
« This Wednesday 15 April, some key decisions may be taken in the European Commission regarding GMOs. Commission President Juncker had promised to make EU decisions on GMOs more democratic. However, the proposed ‘solution’ currently on the table will not do anything to that end. What’s more, on the same day the Commission intends to authorise up to 17 new GM crops for import as food and feed. All of these are tolerant to one or more herbicides, and/or produce (multiple) insecticides. Take action now to tell Juncker to keep his promise on the GMO authorisation rules, and to urge him to not allow this wave of new GM crops for import ».
