Don’t accept new GMOs in Europe!

In a disappointing move, the Commission handed the decision on the authorisation of the GMO maize 1507 over to the Council today with a recommendation for approval. The maize produces an insecticide in its cells and contains a gene that makes it resistant to the non-selective herbicide glufosinate. The cultivation of this maize in Europe would pose unpredictable risk on the environment and consumers.

Now, Environment Ministers have the power to decide – contact your national minister and tell them to reject the authorisation of the 1507 maize!
