A new campaign against GMOs
MEXICO CITY, (Tierramérica).- Environmentalists and other activists celebrated April 1 in eight Mexican cities the first World Day Against Transgenics, another name for genetically modified organisms (GMOs)*Source: Inter Press Service.
"It will be an important date for talking about transgenics, but especially for showing that there are other alternatives of production and consumption of organic food without risks," Areli Carreón, an activist with the watchdog group Greenpeace in Mexico, told Tierramérica ahead of the event.
The initiative, which involves 300 cities in 40 countries and in many cases entailed fairs offering organically grown food, was originally promoted by activists in France.
In Mexico, peasants, artists, intellectuals and organic farmers planned to participate in the activities, said Carreón
