Many think that joining the EU hasn't been very beneficial to them...this is just one more nail in the coffin. The EU is losing every time it votes againt its country members. Evidently it isn't a Democracy anymore...another one bites the dust.

"They" obviously think they can stay rigid and the rest of us will get tired and give up, eating those damn GMO products until they kill us. They are wrong. We will not give up. We will not give up.

Outrageous. I am pretty sure that the people in Europe will not agree to that decision. They will speak up, compared to here in Canada. No GMO all over our planet!

Hit them where it hurts-buy only organic and gmo free food and NOTHING ELSE.Tell the grocery stores including Walmart that you will only purchase organic or gmo free labeled food. Let gmo's rot in stores, in markets, let it rot. Let farmers know growing gmo crops will ruin them, will make them go broke because it will not be purchased. Be loud and clear in the demand for organic and gmo free food. In this country there are more and more organic brands and gmo free brands finally learning to be loud and proud and label their good food. Hit gmo crap where it hurts the most. Let it rot in the produce section, let it sit on the canned goods shelves, let it languish in the frozen food section. Let the only empty spots in the cereal isle be sold out organic cereal. Demand organic eggs and milk. No store wants to have products rot or collect dust. No store wants to lose sales. Let them know what YOU are only willing to purchase for your family. Monsanto and GE put stops to labeling gmos. Make the gmo free crowd want to label theirs for the win and kick Monsanto and GE to the curb. That is what we are doing here and the stores are listening and stocking more and more organic and gmo free labeled products. The gmo crap is rotting and collecting dust which is all it is good for. We make it non profitable for the farmers growing gmo crops and the food manufacturing folks buying it, they will either stop growing or using gmo crap or go out of business-their choice. Either outcome-we win-Monsanto and GE lose.

Dark money really is everywhere in the world. Even though the EU is Liberal on some things, other things they really aren't because the there are millionaires/billionaires everywhere threatening people and giving bribe money to them

They shouldn't have done that. Thanks for sharing, David.

It looks to me like there are corrupt people in high places in the EU as I believe there are here in the US.

I really, really hope the people remember who they voted for and how their representatives are voting for the people's health, and welfare.

....."that TAFTA, the TransAtlantic Free Trade Area agreement still in negotiation, is setting up arbitration courts to enable corporations to challenge state laws, forcing their product on nations that do not want it."
This is outrageous !
