Chilean citizens win right to know GMO cultures location

María Elena Rozas, leader of Alianza por una Mejor Calidad de Vida/RAP-Chile (Alliance for better Quality of Life/Pesticide Action Network-Chile) praised Transparency Council’s final ruling on publishing the exact location of GMO crops, confirming a former decision issued on 2010. It was published on March 21 and supports Rozas action on the citizens’ right to know, denied by Agriculture and Livestock Service Agency. Transparency Council’s former decision was appealed in 2010 in Court by the TNC Monsanto and most of the companies growing GMO seeds for export from Chile.
