24 hours to block GM
As soon as tomorrow, the EU could approve the first new genetically modified crop in years, going against public opinion and 19 member states! But if we persuade him that this will be hugely unpopular, we can convince him to stand strong against GM, just like he did against bee killing pesticides.

Use the form on the right to send an urgent message to EU Commissioner Tonio Borg and the Commission's President José Manuel Barroso. Remember to be polite and to personalise your message -- the more personal our messages are, the more influence they will have. Here are some suggested points to include:
  • As citizens of the EU, we call on you not to approve Du Pont’s GM corn.
  • This decision will be deeply unpopular and goes against a vote by the European Parliament and the wishes of 19 member states.
  • The plan to let individual states bring in their own bans could see countries sued by GM companies.
  • Former Maltese Commissioner Dalli approved a GM potato and his decision was reversed. Don’t make the same mistake.
