Activists Evict pro-GMO Food Authorities from EU Offices


from Earth First! Newswire

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) in Parma, Italy, was taken over by activists yesterday, who demanded that staff leave the building.

According to Jan Op Gen Oorth, EFSA’s media officer, “EFSA’s building was stormed today by anti-GMO activists and we had to leave the building.”

The group decried the EFSA’s approval of GMOs in Europe.

EFSA released a public statement insisting that it appreciates all freedom of speech, but deplores the methods used by the activists.
