If this licence is approved by the EPA, then Ireland will have lost it's GM free status and it's position as a green, natural food island. This has severe economic and environmental implications for Irish food producers and consumers. Once GM is released into the environment, it cannot be withdrawn and risks cross-pollination with non-GM varieties.
This petition will accompany a submission being made by no2gm to EPA to stop these unnecessary trials. The deadline for the EPA submission is 5pm on 27th March so please sign and forward this vital petition now to ensure Ireland is kept truly green.
