The corporations lobbyists design the new laws so that the only thing our "hard working EU commissioners" have to do is just sign and at the end of the month receive their fat salary plus their expenses.
Monsan to's MON 810 maize occupies "only 1.35 percent of the EU's total maize-growing area".

A corporate plan ? the banks stole all of our money and on top of that the government gave them our public money

There are rules that say if you dont join the EU you cant have free trade ,but what if the EU is going broke what happens to those rules then ? America needs the EU to unload all of its GM products and the climate is right for American corporations to move into cheap labour zones like the sunshine bank places such as Spain/Greece/Portuga l ect ect ,think its far fetched sit back and watch !

This is what 'Democratic Centralism' as practiced by the communist regimes, is about! The members say no but the executive says 'you don't count'!
If you can follow the money trail you will find the 'sunks' at the end. GM Corn it WILL be or??????

Maybe the rest of the EU peoples should express their displeasure with their pocket books. Do not buy anything from UK, Spain , Estonia, Finland and Sweden, do not travel there as tourists until these countries change their stance?

test fields are always signposted, and nature gave us four elements, water, air, earth, and........

Cameron is all for it.

Are the people in govt that are pro GM that stupid? Or do they have some sort of 'killing' agenda?

GM crops is not up for political debate. Who cares about politics????

Why would you approve something that is dangerous to human health PROVEN IN STUDIES??

I dont understand! Why!???

We must isolate where GM-crops are grown, organize ourselves into trained unit groups, and terminate the contaminated arenas with extreme prejudice; 'clean' all fields with GM-toxins growing therein with fire and other methods. Organise yourselves efficiently and bring back the democracy that is being violated by terrorist corporate groups. Get the maps of where they're grown - and let's get our acts together.

So what happened to Democracy here? GM foods should be banned for humans and animals alike.


Tuco 13.02.2014 17:06

What about lighters and gasoline as a special gift?
Shouldn´t be more dangerous than GM crops polluting the neighbor´s acre.

Its an absolute disgrace that they've already allowed GM crops to be fed to animals and then proceeded to sell that GM contaminated animal meat to the public without restriction; no wonder medical conditions and cancer are on the rise.

EU: Heh member states. Like just do what ya wana do. Whoah! And thanks for the paychecks.

So every representative in the EU is allowed to vote, but the only problem is that your vote doesn't matter. Easy to see why the elites wanted to form a union, huh?
