No GMO Through The Backdoor

 

21 years after the successful referendum against the use of GMOs, which was signed by 1.2 million Austrians, the country’s GMO-free status is at stake once again. The debate is fuelled by the development of new techniques of genetic engineering that are creating new possibilities for the modification of the genome. Whereas the seed industry is of the view that these new techniques should be exempted from the GMO rules, ARCHE NOAH represents the view that it is important to clarify that these techniques, like their predecessors, involve risk and must be subject to regulations. This is the only way we can prevent genetic engineering from entering through the back door and, together with seed companies, further destroying our biological diversity!
