Petition against GM Food
The European Commission has just approved growing genetically modified crops for the first time in twelve years, putting the GM lobby’s profits over public concerns – 60 % of Europeans feel we need more information before growing foods that could threaten our health and environment. A new initiative allows one million EU citizens a unique chance to make official requests of the European Commission.
AVAAZ aims at having million voices for a ban on GM foods until research is done. Therefore, a petition can be signed here. Avaaz.org is a global web movement with a simple democratic mission, with ” Avaaz” meaning „voice“ in many Asian, Middle Eastern and Eastern European languages. In less than three years, they have grown to over 4.2 million members, and have begun to make a real impact on global politics.
