This is a petition to the Dutch Minister of Environment who has agreed on a genetically engineered (GM) vaccination study re foals in foals from 3 days old untill 6 months.

They use a GM-bacterium. The little horses will stay with their mothers in stables and on grassland and the manure with the GMO in it will be put on the land. The little horses shall eventually be killed (in case of biopsy) after the study is done. The European GMO-free Citizens agree with a Dutch signer who wrote that, GM-vaccines are very dangerous. There is a real risk of the generation of new pathogens with greater virulence and a broader host-range than the original pathogen. And there is no possibility of undoing it.The European GMO-free Citizens don't want this GM vet-vaccine and have written this petition, which you can sign. 

We will go to the Dutch Council of State in the Hague. This topic and these signatures are brought to their attention. The hearing will be on October the 3rd 2011.

 

The Dutch Council of State

Advisory body on legislation and administrative court
The Council of State has two primary tasks, carried out by two separate divisions. The Advisory Division, as its name implies, advises the government and Parliament on legislation and governance, while the Administrative Jurisdiction Division is the country’s highest general administrative court. The basis for these responsibilities can be found in articles 73 and 75 of the Constitution.

Like the House of Representatives and the Senate, the Netherlands Court of Audit and the National Ombudsman, the Council is one of the High Councils of State. These are bodies regulated by the Constitution, which carry out their tasks independently of the government.

      GM and vaccination are both a wrong way to reach the healthgoal. Take the natural way. Beside of that; give people different possibilitys to handle. Thank you

      De minister van Milieu mag mij wel een keer vertellen wat er gebeurd met al die onderzoeken die gefundeerd worden door de promoters van GM-voedsel. Jullie weten dondersgoed wat er gaande is maar draaien naar onafhankelijke onderzoekers de nek om, alsof jullie niet al genoeg nekken omdraaien. De waarheid moet en zal naar buiten komen!
