According to AVAAZ, in days Europe could outlaw GM crops, or it could open the flood gates. These crops and their pesticides could be an ecological nightmare, but with enough support we can swing key countries to protect the future of farming. One of the crops can be lethal for butterflies — they’re also used with a toxic herbicide that can end up in our food. But as giant chemical companies lobby our leaders, people everywhere are fighting back. A win here could be a game changer for the future of farming.
France is a key player. They’ve been a leader on GMOs and toxic pesticides in the past. And with an election around the corner, a continent-wide outcry could swing their vote.
