Urgent Action Needed Against Pro-GM Abuse of Science and Scientist

ISIS Press Release 04/12/07

When ISIS organised its briefing at European Parliament in June (Scientists and MEPs for a GM free Europe, SiS 35), we already knew that one of our speakers, Irina Ermakova, has had her funding withdrawn because the results of her experiments (GM Soya Fed Rats: Stunted, Dead, or Sterile, SiS 33) challenged the claims of the biotech industry that GM food is safe. She has since been the victim of a scandalous attempt to discredit her work by the mainstream journal, Nature Biotechnology (Science and Scientist Abused, SiS 36).

We have now learned that a second member of our panel of scientists, Christian Vélot, has lost his funding.

There is a committee of support for Vélot and they have organised a petition that has already attracted 6000 signatures. You can sign it on line by going to http://sciencescitoyennes.org/spip.php?article1638

Please sign the petition and send the link to your friends. The biotech industry is working very hard to suppress independent science and scientists; we must do all we can to fight it.

A list of the members of the committee is available at http://sciencescitoyennes.org/IMG/pdf/CSvelot3.pdf

Translation of the petition:

Christian Vélot is a lecturer and researcher in molecular genetics at the Université Paris-Sud. Since 2002 he has led a research group in the Institute of Genetics and Microbiology (a joint CNRS-University institute) at the Orsay Scientific Centre. In addition to carrying out his teaching and research, he has devoted some of his own time to meetings on GMOs. These meetings, one of which in particular served as a working document for the GMO activists at the Grenelle de l'Environnement [a series of meetings in October 2007 in which representatives from government, professional associations and NGOs discussed environmental issues].
