Slow Food International Congress Adopts Statement in Support of California’s Proposition 37, To Label GMOs
"We, the representatives of the 2012 International Slow Food Congress, representing 95 nations in the world, support the goal of Proposition 37, the Label GMO ballot initiative in California. We look with hope upon the people of California who will decide whether or not to make this Proposition the law, the first of its kind in the United States. We ask them to join us and millions of people all around the world who seek transparency in the food system. We all have a right to know what we are growing and eating. Full and accurate information is a necessary component in a food system that is good, clean and fair."
