Subject: Emergency Day of Action to STOP GE Trees next Tuesday 3 March!

Please share widely!

Emergency actions to STOP GE trees called for Tuesday, March 3rd at the Brazilian Embassy or Consulate near you!

Take action in solidarity with Brazilian social movements and organizations to stop the legalization of socially and ecologically destructive GE trees.

(Click here for all the details) <>


On THURSDAY 5 March 2015, CTNBio, the agency that regulates GMOs in Brazil, will decide on an industry request to legalize the commercial development of genetically engineered eucalyptus trees.

CTNBio may approve this commercial release of genetically engineered (GE) eucalyptus.

That is, UNLESS there's enough pressure, both nationally and globally, to change their mind.

If this request is approved, it will be an unprecedented decision, with devastating social and environmental impacts not only for Brazil but around the world.

In the US, a similar request to the USDA from GE tree company ArborGen to legalize their GE eucalyptus trees is currently pending, and doubtless the US will be paying close attention to this decision in Brazil.

We need you to help stop this disaster!

We are mobilizing an Emergency Day of Action to STOP GE Trees NEXT TUESDAY, March 3rd and we need your help to make it a success!

Biofuels are a wide range of fuels which are in some way derived from biomass.

Your idea?
