GM Cows

Squall Download 3, March/April 2000, pg. 11.

Transgenic cows being removed from the Canadian consulate building near London’s Trafalgar Square, on Jan 24. The action was part of a protest called by a coalition of groups to raise concerns about the January’s biosafety protocol talks in Canada which designed to regulate the global trade in genetically modified organisms (GMO’s).

Campaigners are particularly worried about a group of GMO exporting countries within the talks who call themselves the Miami group. Headed by the United States, the Miami group also includes Canada, Australia, Chile, Argentina and Uruguay in a trade coalition keen to prevent the talks imposing any effective envirnomental regulation on the global market in GMO’s.
