The Communist Party of Malta supports the initiative taken by various organisations to organise a protest march against Monsanto.
The Party said that “US recently had passed a law that gave the right to companies to sell genetically-modified (GM) seeds even when federal courts have blocked them from doing so, due to health or environmental reason. According to reports, Monsanto was directly involved in crafting this legislation”.
“The Government should put pressure on European Union for a Europe free from the cultivation and production of GMOs. European Union should not succumb to pressure from multinationals, but instead should safeguard ecological sustainability and agricultural diversity”, concluded the Party.
