Beim Hauptportal des Palais hängten Greenpeacer ein riesiges Transparent mit der Aufschrift: "Respect Life on Earth - Stop Genetic Manipulation". Darüber das weltbekannten Nestlé-Signet (Vogelnest), aus dem ein schauriges Ungeheuer - halb Vogel, halb Krake - herauskriecht.Locations:Alpine Countries-Europe-Lausanne-SwitzerlandDate:5 Jun, 1997Credit:© Greenpeace / Edouard CurchodMaximum size:1718px X 1159pxRestrictions:Images ok for use in all Greenpeace campaigns, products and brochures.

They were holding signs reading "Natürlich - nicht Nestlé!", "Naturellement - pas Nestlé!" "Naturalmente - no Nestlé!". Greenpeace attached a huge banner reading: "Respect Life on Earth - Stop Genetic Manipulation" and the famous Nestle logo with the bird's nest with, instead of a cute bird, a gruesome monster (half bird, half octopus) on the main entrance of the Palais. The international "guinea pigs", presented a written appeal to the shareholders. With the appeal Greenpeace calls upon the shareholders to exercise their responsibilities as funders of the world's largest food company towards consumers and the environment, and to ask the new CEO Peter Brabeck to stand up for natural and healthy, sustainably produced food, instead of focusing on the questionable, at most short-term results of genetic engineering.
