GMOs Our vision is of European food and farming free from GM crops and corporate control

27 January 2017

Last Saturday, 130 tractors led 18,000 people demanding an urgent shift away from destructive industrial agriculture across the streets of Berlin.

The colourful march was led under the banner of "agribusiness, hands off our food!" and was part of the annual "Wir haben es satt" (we've had enough) demonstration. With the world's largest agribusiness giants planning to merge the corporate threat to our food system has never been greater.

EU governments will decide on Friday whether to approve the first genetically modified crops in 19 years, against a background of widespread opposition from farmers and the wider public. [1]

Genetically modified (GM) crops bring unnecessary risks to both humans and nature. They increase the corporate control of the food chain, whilst placing heavy economic burdens upon conventional and organic food sectors aiming to avoid contamination.

 

Friends of the Earth Europe campaigns for food and farming free from GM crops. We push for solutions that provide livelihoods and healthy food for people, protect our biodiversity, and don't pollute the environment. We aim to make sure GMOs and big business stay out of our food chain and our fields.
