Biosafety Meeting in Curitiba: Towards a strict GMO labelling?

14-03-2006 12:01

On Monday, 13 March the Third Conference on the Biosafety Protocol (MOP3) started in Curitiba, Brazil. The Biosafety Protocol is the only international treaty that sets obligatory rules for the trade with GMOs. Main issue of this meeting is the question how GMOs have to be labelled (Article 18). GMO producers favour the very vague label that something "may contain" GMOs, while most countries want a clear description of which GMO is contained in a shipment. (background of COP8/MOP3 meeting ).

Dalston Theatre court case- freedom of expression? hmmm

14-03-2006 02:06

The occupants of the buildings alongside Dalston Theatre, 4-14 Dalston Lane E9, went to Shoreditch Court this Monday morning.

Unfortunately, much time was taken up by the statement of the other defendent, and the judge did not allow time for the statement below to be read.
