Stop playing with hunger! - factsheet

Friends of the Earth International, June 2003: The US Government is promoting GM crops as the primary solution to improving food security and solving hunger in developing countries. The US Administration and biotech corporations will be strongly promoting GM crops at the Ministerial. Friends of the Earth opposes the Bush administration position on this issue, and is calling on all Governments attending the Ministerial to challenge US and corporate pressure to accept and promote GM food. This paper exposes the problems around the shipment of US GM food aid to developing countries and the hypocrisy behind the US Government argument that GM crops are needed to solve hunger in Africa.
