800 Scientists Demand Global GMO “Experiment” End
by Elizabeth Renter
May 24th, 2013

The Open Letter from World Scientists to All Governments calls for “the immediate suspension of all environmental releases of GM crops and products, both commercially and in open field trials, for at least 5 years.”

They also want patents on organisms, cell lines, and living things revoked and banned. Such patents (a sort of corporate version of “playing God,”) “threaten food security, sanction biopiracy of indigenous knowledge and genetic resources, violate basic human rights and dignity, compromise healthcare, impede medical and scientific research and are against the welfare of animals.”

Scientists Speaking Out

In the beginning, after its first draft in 1999, the letter had just over 300 signatures. Since then, it’s grown significantly. At the writing of this article, the document has 828 signatures representing 84 different countries.

--

The letter has been presented to numerous governments and organizations, including the U.N. Commission on Sustainable Development, the U.N. Convention on Biological Diversity, the World Trade Organization, and yes, even the U.S. Congress. The letter has been shared at these venues, but it doesn’t seem like anyone was listening.

4. The other names are real people, don't know why

they put these spoof names on first.

The point is that most actual scientists find this whole outrageous experiment with life without transparent and adequate safety testing
an unmitigated horror.

It is simply bizarre and shows how dumbed down and outright stupid and yes I said STUPID people and especially politicians are about science that they would allow this to go on.

The general public can possibly be excused, but not politicians.

Shame on the American "scientific" community for not stopping this travesty in it's tracks!

6. I learned that the hard way....

My first and only Internet poll asked 'Democratic Leaders' demand that electronic voting machines be implemented in an auditable fashion.

The 'signatures' would make sailors blush.

3. As much as I love hearing this

I don't expect our captured government do anything but their corporate master's bidding. Expect one of DU's DINO Shills to be along shortly to poop all over it.
