Sign the online petition at www.saveourseeds.org to keep seeds free from genetic manipulation.
Genetically engineered soya pods.
Proposed amendments to European Union (EU) Seed Directives
specify allowable limits for GMO (genetically modified organism)
contamination of seeds up to thresholds between 0.3 percent and 0.7
percent without even labelling them as genetically engineered.
However, Greenpeace and other organisations assert that any
detectable GMO contamination presents an unacceptable risk to the
environment. The proposed regulation must reflect this fact by
legislating "zero tolerance" for GMO contamination of seeds.
A petition to save seeds from contamination has been launched by
a broad coalition including Greenpeace. It will be submitted to the
institutions of the European Union as well as national ministries
The deadline for signing the petition, which is available in
several languages, is June 28th.
