A dozen activists from environmental organization Greenpeace today started a sustained blockade of a warehouse containing the controversial, genetically modified (GM) potato Amflora in the Vojakkala area of northern Sweden. The activists demand that Plant Science Sweden, a biotech company owned and controlled by German chemical giant BASF, stop all plans to resume cultivation of Amflora, referring to substandard, biased risk assessment and failed and unreliable control of the cultivation. 05/19/2011
