On 9th October hundreds of people will march through the streets of Brussels pushing supermarket trolleys, filled with national food specialities from all over Europe.
With this international trolley parade, Friends of the Earth wants to send a clear message to the Ministers in the EU:
EUROPEAN CONSUMERS WANT THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE FOR FOOD THAT IS FREE FROM GENETIC POLLUTION.
Just a few days after the action European Ministers will decide about a proposal to label all food that is derived from Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). The signal that the trolley action will send cannot be misunderstood: the Ministers should vote in favour of labelling of all genetically modified (GM) food and animal feed and ensure the right to choose GM-free food. In addition, the moratorium on GMOs should be upheld until full safety regulations are in place and consumers choice is guaranteed.
Don’t let them get away with it. Come to Brussels and join in the first ever trolley parade! Meet GMO activists from all over Europe at the party after the parade!
