Vote coming up -- tell the European Commission to reject the toxic GM glufosinate-tolerant and insecticidal maize.
Greenpeace report on the maize:
Take action today! Stop toxic GM maize
Stopthecrop.org, 4 Nov 2013
This Wednesday, 6 November, a crucial decision will be made on whether or not to open up Europe’s fields to new toxic genetically modified (GM) maize. The European Commission has the power to reject this maize (called Pioneer 1507), and to stand up for the good of European citizens, consumers, and the environment.
Public opposition to genetically modified crops has ensured that the overwhelming majority of Europe’s countryside has remained GM-free. You can help keep it this way!
Tell the European Commission they must reject this toxic maize, and stand up for people and planet.
