The European Commission has recently approved growing genetically modified crops in the European Union for the first time in 12 years! The commission has effectively 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 seeking to build a million voices for a ban on GM foods until the research is done; they will be delivered to the President Barroso of the European Commission.

I recently wrote to our MEP Julie Girling on GM and Cloning - see here - disappointingly she has failed to respond - poor show indeed. Let's get a million voices to tell these politicians that they should be representing our views.
