WWF and Oxfam support Monsanto
WWF and Oxfam USA are now sleeping with the enemy, so to speak. In the latest update from GM Watch, they say that the Round Table on Responsible Soy Association (RTRS) has now not only accepted, but welcomed Monsanto and Syngenta as their full members. Not very responsible, eh?
It looks like the WWF is still involved with RTRS, so please let them know that you don't like it:
In today's update, GM Watch also exposes Oxfam America's PR for Monsanto:
"Oxfam America, a development organization, has co-organized an event at which every single speaker is a big promoter of GM solutions to world hunger. Oxfam America is even providing a platform for a Monsanto Vice President - Kevin L. Eblen, Monsanto's former Director of Mergers and Acquisitions."
Details of the event are here:
