Brazil, Paraná: Syngenta's GMO alert!

The farm is located in the band of ecological protection of the National Park of Iguaçu.

Brazil, Paraná: Syngenta's GMO alert!

President of Claspar Alerts for retaking of research with GMO by Syngenta.

The director-president of Paraná States's Company of classification of products - Claspar -, the agronomist Valdir Izidoro Silveira, alerted for the danger of Syngenta to retake research with GMO's products in its farm, in Saint Tereza of the West.

The property was occupied for people of Agricultural Way, who had left the place this week. "Syngenta must, in respect to Parana State's biodiversity and agricultural vocation, to use its property in Saint Helena of the West, as field of experiment for improvement of organic products", defended.

The farm is located in the band of ecological protection of the National Park of Iguaçu. "In case that it begins again to be used as field of tests toward research with GMOS, it will demonstrate that the Swiss company really wants to make, at Paraná, what it would never make in the Swiss city of Basel, headquarters of the company" affirmed Silveira.

That's why the retaking of experiences with GMOS in that place can be faced as a confrontation of Syngenta against people of Paraná State."There is effective risk of ambient contamination for genetic mutations. It will be a dangerous situation for our biodiversity and also for our conventional agricultural production", said Valdir.

The president of Claspar standed out that "Syngenta intended, when developing GMO's experiments, to make of that area Swiss land in Paraná State's territory, a species of usurpation of our teritorial sovereignty, possessing itself a piece of our ground, where only the decisions of the company matter, despite the risks and prejudices its activities causes for this brazilian state".

The fight of the Government of Paraná savetheamazonpictures.blogspot.com/ for the paralyzation of experiments with GMOS of Syngenta in Brazilian territory received support from about 370 civil entities from Brazil and abroad, www.savetheamazon.blogspot.com among them.
