Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, La Via Campesina and other organisations are hosting a petition calling on the European Commission to effectively regulate new GMOs. These organisms are having their genes “edited” through new GM and synbio techniques, and the companies developing them are claiming that they’re not technically GMOs, so they shouldn’t face the same regulations around their testing, labeling and commercialisation. We disagree! These new GMOs should be treated just the same as more “conventional” ones. Please sign and distribute the petition.
