(Handed out at GMO Conference 2009)
Dutch debate on socio-economic impacts GMO’s:
Sidetracking the real issues?
The Dutch Ministry of Agriculture today organises a conference about a very important topic: the socio-economic impacts of GMO’s. End of last year, the EU Environment Ministers decided that socio-economic criteria should be developed for GMO’s. But at this conference, the real issues seem to get sidetracked.
The Dutch Agriculture Ministry and the conference organisers are using this debate for another aim: to set the ground for a ‘review’ of the EU GMO policy. They claim, along with the biotech and animal feed industry, that the EU admission procedure for new GMO’s is too slow. In particular, they want to see the EU zero-tolerance policy regarding non-authorised GMO’s to be abolished. The argument for this is that this policy causes economic damages for Europe’s factory farms. The focus therefore is not on the real socio-economic impacts that soy production and factory farms cause around the world.

Hundreds of stickers with the message “I don’t eat GM chips” have been spread throughout The Netherlands between September 29 and October 7. The sticker action week against GM potatoes took place parallel to the annual Week of Taste, which’ central theme this year was the potato. Concerned citizens and activists put the protest stickers on landposts and such in the vicinities of snackbars, supermarkets, trial fields with genetically modified potatoes. Even the WUR agriculture university in Wageningen was not spared. Apparently the GE projects of BASF and WUR leave not only us with sour taste and many do not hide their resentment. But unfortunately the message has not came across well yet, as the most recent permit for even more BASF field trials for 2013 illustrate. So GM protests go on and we call everybody to join our sticker and protest card action “GM chips won’t touch my lips”. Continue reading to find out how, and where.
