Call of Orleans for a Spring without GMOs

Because there is only one month left to convince the government to implement a moratorium on GM crops before the 2007 sowings.

A hunger strike for some, a protest fast for others has started this morning (Wednesday the 1'th of March) to ask for a moratorium. It was launched by an action in the Natural History Museum in Paris. Above the gangway of the Great Gallery of Evolution where the activists had held their banniers "For a moratorium on GMOs", "No to GMOs", one could read:

«Evolution»

«…Some 4 billions years of evolution have produced the current diversity of environments and of species » «Yet, for 10000 years, the mankind affects more and more the nature. What is the future of evolution ? »

This is the question that the invasion of GMOs and its irreparable consequences is raising. GMOs are imposed by a minority of seeds companies and irresponsably supported by the government. The hunger strikers and the fasters will be staying for their action at : la Maison Ouverte, 17, rue Hoche 93100 Montreuil.

They will welcome the support of the population, of the activists, of organizations, associations, from politicians and candidates to the president election everyday from 10:00 to 19:00. (Dominique Voynet – Green party candidate to the president election – already came to show her solidarity and her support and other candidates have already announced they they will come).
