March for GMO-free food on World Environment Day

Greenpeace marked World Environment Day with a call for the government to stop the onslaught of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) into the country.

Carrying a giant eggplant-shaped balloon, the activists marched around the offices of the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Environment in Quezon City to gather public support for vigilance on food and environmental safety for the sake of Filipinos.  They carried banners that said “Filipinos are not guinea pigs.  Stop GMO invasion!”

Greenpeace is calling for the government to stop the onslaught of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) into the country. Last April 26, 2012, Greenpeace filed a petition for a Writ of Kalikasan and Writ of Continuing Mandamus at the Supreme Court seeking legal remedy to the flawed regulatory system that has allowed the unhampered proliferation of dangerous GMOs in the country. The court granted the Writ of Kalikasan last May 11, 2012.
