Ahead of the approaching EU elections, ECVC and its members across Europe have addressed an open letter to the Spitzenkandidatens (European Commission Presidency candidates) and to their countries’ respective EU election candidates, demanding the strict enforcement of the European Union GMO regulation.

 

Furthermore, in the text, ECVC members unveil the lobby campaign pushed by the biotech lobby intended to undermine the right of consumers to know what they eat and the right of peasants to know what they produce. The right to continue a type of GMO free agriculture and an agriculture free of the risk of non-declared GMO contamination, must be upheld by the EU’s future MEPs and EU decision makers.
