GM bans are illegal

World Trade Organisation and Genetic Modification

I have just recieved a note from From Friends of the Earth to say that this week the World Trade Organisation released its draft ruling on the Genetically Modified trade dispute to the parties involved. It has sided with the US, claiming Europe’s national bans on GM are a barrier to trade and illegal under WTO rules.

Wow, that is heavy.

PLEASE ACT!

Email the Ministers for Trade & the Environment to ask them to stand up to the World Trade Organisation and the right of European countries to ban GM food: http://www.foe.co.uk/biteback/
