 en THE GM ISSUE - AGITATION AGAINST GM FOODS RISES AS BILL DEBATE BEGINS

Abstract

Protests and marches in city areas in Australia during March against genetically modified foods has highlighted the intensifying clash between those in favour and against the use of biotechnology to alter some of the characteristics of food. Increasing pressure in being placed on supermarket chains, food companies and governments to slow down or stop the sale of genetically modified foods.

Against this background, the new Gene Technology 2000 legislation will be shortly debated in the Federal Parliament.
