450,000 EU for citizens for more GMO research and rising

The European Commission has just approved growing genetically modified crops in the European Union for the first time in 12 years.

Caving to the GM lobby, the commission has ignored 60% of Europeans who feel we have to get the facts first before growing foods that could pose a threat to our health and environment.

A new initiative allows 1 million EU citizens to make official legal requests of the European Commission. Avaaz is running a petition aiming to collect a million voices for a ban on GM foods until the research is done; they will be delivered to President Barroso of the European Commission.

For more info and to sign the petition follow the link below.
