Sorry if this has already been posted, I did a search but couldn't find it.

"The European Commission has recently approved growing genetically modified crops for the first time in 12 years, putting the GM lobby's profits over public concerns -- 60% of Europeans feel we need more information before growing foods that could threaten our health and environment.

Here's a little more information about Avaaz:


I don't necessarily agree with every stand they take but this one seems worthwhile.
