Stop the Crop

For a sustainable, GMO-free future

Environment ministers willing to support GM ban law drafted by GM lobbyists

June 10th 2014

The new GM law that would theoretically allow individual countries to ban genetically modified (GM) crops is poisoned chalice and could open Europe’s field to more biotech crops. On Thursday 12 June EU environment minister will vote about this new law

The proposed new law would grant biotech companies, like Monsanto and Syngenta, unprecedented power. They would be given the legal right to decide whether a national ban should be allowed. If companies oppose bans, national governments would be forced to fall back on non-scientific legal grounds, opening the door to legal challenges.
