---ALERT FROM GREENPEACE
An important vote on GMOs is due to take place on 7 May in Brussels. The agro-chemical industry wants to get EU permission to grow pesticide-producing maize plants and a GM potato that contains an antibiotic resistant gene. We want EU Commissioners to say NO when they discuss the applications on 7 May. Our petitions, postcards, emails, blog comments and actions have helped bring the EU to this historic moment. Now, this is it!
Can you join us in writing directly to all the European Commissioners this week?http://www.email.greenpeace.org/wrdddppq_kssskmb.html?RECIPID=888904
The agro-chemical industry is already bombarding the Commission with lobbyists and messages. Greenpeace activists and campaigners are on the ground in Brussels, too. But with your voice, and your network of friends, we can deliver a louder, more direct message to Europe's top politicians.
We have contact details for all 27 European Commissioners, talking points you can use in your message to them, and links to further reading. The vast majority of EU citizens are opposed to GMOs, and emails direct from people who care ? in Europe, around the world ? can really work.
Please click here to take action.http://www.email.greenpeace.org/wrdddppw_kssskmb.html?RECIPID=888904
Thank you for taking action before 7 May and for campaigning this far with us already.
We will keep you informed!
Everyone at Greenpeace International

*the total gmwatch archive athttp://www.lobbywatch.org/archive.asp
*the biotech brigade profiles athttp://www.lobbywatch.org/profile.asp?page=
*even the gmwatch home pagehttp://www.lobbywatch.org/default.html
Deleted pages, such as the deleted interview about Monsanto's dirty tricks campaigns, can sometimes be found via the internet archive:http://www.archive.org/index.php
