Stop the Crop

For a sustainable, GMO-free future

European farming at risk

March 18th 2013

The European Commission is currently considering reviving talks on 25 new GM-crops for cultivation in Europe – including crops resistant to the pesticide RoundUp and insecticide-producing varieties of GM maize, soybean and sugarbeet. The groups claim that such a move would drastically change farming in Europe, leading to a big increase in pesticide use, contamination of conventional and organic crops and further industrialisation of the countryside.

Thanks for all you support, for tweeting and telling the European Commission to reject the GM maize. BUT

the European Commission decided today to ask national ministers to authorise the GM maize 1507!

We keep on mobilising before the decision of the environmental ministers in mid December and will update you via this page and our facebook page.
