But the supposed benefits have not been realized in countries where GM crops are grown; on the other hand, the damages and impacts of genetic manipulations are increasingly verified.
Stop land depredation and pollution with responsible agroecological consumption
by Carme Pagés Pallisé
Agroecological and responsible consumption: "It is a seed for the future of our land and food.
It is an honest and independent slogan of rural society that seeks the support of the majority of urban consumers for a good, clean and fair agri-food model.
It is the defense of a small agriculture, vital for the territorial balance and food security of the country. It is respect for the environment, the land and the traditional ways of relating to it. It is the defense of our own varieties as one of our most important cultural heritages. It is a resounding no to patents and manipulations of living organisms.
It is the last possibility of organic agriculture and food in Catalonia.
It is health through food (to know what we eat, we have to know what we sow).
It is food as a human need and not as an industrial commodity.
It is critical consumption: local, seasonal and Healthy food "* President of the CCOP
