A big surprise to you from China’s State Council

Standard Page - 2012-03-09
Thanks to your support, the State Council has finally released the draft proposal of a grain law that establishes legislation restricting research, field trials, production, sale, import and export of GE grain seeds. The draft stipulates that no organization or person can employ unauthorized GE technology in any major food product in China.
Dear supporter, welcome to Greenpeace's latest newsletter 中 文 版 本
 
Dear (name):
Greenpeace success: Chinese Government on its way
to end genetically-engineered (GE) rice
Thanks to your support, the council has come up with a new legal proposal that would validate seven long years of Greenpeace's tireless campaigning against GE rice.
When Greenpeace started back in 2005 it looked like China was on the road to making GE rice a reality. So Greenpeace unearthed GE scandals where it was already being grown and sold illegally.
Now the State Council has finally released the draft proposal of a grain law that establishes legislation restricting research, field trials, production, sale, import and export of GE grain seeds. The draft stipulates that no organization or person can employ unauthorized GE technology in any major food product in China.
Of course, while the law is still in the proposal stages, Greenpeace won’t be slacking off. With your support we will continue our successful campaigning against GE until the law is set in stone.
 
 
 
Lessons from Fukushima
A year ago Japan suffered a terrible earthquake which triggered a nuclear accident at a power plant in Fukushima. It’s easy to blame the nuclear fallout on the quake but as a careful Greenpeace study reveals the Fukushima nuclear crisis was a crisis that acutally could be avoided. It’s the same story in every nuclear power plant, including our very own Daya Bay near Hong Kong. Is nuclear a safe energy to the future of Hong Kong?
 
 
New evidence shown APP is using ILLEGAL rainforest timber at their pulp mill!
Greenpeace’s latest investigations have exposed how APP pulp mills are riddled with ramin, an internationally protected species and also destroying homes of 400 endangered Sumatran tigers. The logging and trade in ramin is banned under Indonesian law ten years ago. Please take a look at our yearlong investigation, and see how you could help to save these precious species in the world.
