Shoot: Call for GMO Policy Integration in the ASEAN and APEC Agendas in Quezon

GP0STPF0Q
Greenpeace, together with Magsasaka at Siyentipiko para sa Pag-unlad ng Agrikultura (MASIPAG) and Sibol ng Agham at Teknolohiya (Sibat), called for a halt on genetically-modified organisms (GMO) policy integration in the ASEAN and APEC agendas, and urged the Philippine government to support the research and development of Ecological Agriculture in the country. The activists also launched a large balloon with banner message clamoring “For a food-secure and GMO-free APEC and ASEAN”.

Leaders of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) member-economies are meeting in Manila from Nov. 18-19, shortly after which the Association of the Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) will meet on Nov. 21-23 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The groups are asking the Philippine government to address its own issues at home and to immediately commence an administrative process to hear the opposition of Filipinos to GM crops and overhaul its flawed regulation.
