Take Action! Congress to Fast Track GE Fish Approval

http://www.greenpeaceusa.org/bin/actionframe.pl?action_id=182

Through an obscure bill entitled the Minor Use, Minor Species Act (Senate Bill # 741), members of Congress are attempting to make it easier for the Food and Drug Administration to approve the sale of genetically engineered fish! SB 741 will ease the regulations the FDA uses to approve GE fish and other organisms by shortening the review process.

Just as we stopped agribusiness from weakening organic food standards, it is important to Take Action to stop GE fish from being commercialized. Go to: http://www.greenpeaceusa.org/bin/actionframe.pl?action_id=182 to send a letter to your Senators and Representative today opposing the fast-track approval of GE fish. For more information about GE fish, please see http://www.greenpeaceusa.org/ge/fish.htm For information about GE fish varieties being developed, please see http://www.greenpeaceusa.org/ge/fish_varieties.htm
