Genetically engineered food by Bush & Co. E-card designed by Mark Fiore.

Take Action

Here are just a few things you can do to protest the WTO's prioritisation of corporate profits over the health of our planet and its people.

Send it to your friends and spread the word to help stop the corporate takeover of our food!
