Tonio Borg, European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Policy
Europe is days away from granting approval to the first new genetically modified crop in 16 years, but if we act fast there is still a chance to keep our continent as a fortress against GM.

EU Commissioner Borg says he plans to let in a chemical corn designed to be toxic to insects even though most Europeans don’t want GM and our parliament voted against this decision! But we can turn up the pressure by targeting him at home. Borg comes from Malta, an island of less than 500,000 people. There’s only one airport and a billboard on the main road would be seen by pretty much everyone who drives a car on the island so it’s easy to get the message across.

If we act fast we can change Borg’s mind -- he’s now a bee champion after facing strong public pressure to protect them. Let’s build a massive outcry across Europe he can’t ignore -- sign now and share with everyone.
