Multinational Intervet International wants to test a genetically engineered live attenuated Pasteurella multocida and Mannheimia haemolytica deletion mutant vet vaccine (PM-MH) against respiratory disease in little,  4000 two- weeks young- calves and older in the Netherland.

Intervet states that the calves will be deprived of the colostrum. Every calf has the right to drink his mothers milk it is very essential for them! After the trail the calves will be killed. This experiment is unethical!

Furthermore The European GMO-free Citizens think, 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 manure will be spread on the land.

      This is the moment when we must come together to save this planet. Let us resolve that we will not leave our children a world where the oceans rise and famine spreads and terrible storms devastate our lands.

      ( Barack Obama)

      We haven't got the power to destroy the planet -- or to save it. But we might have the power to save ourselves.

      animal testing is unethical, unreliable, dangerous and will probably be used to further demonize the industry
