HAVANA TIMES – A group of American intellectuals who recently traveled to Havana to attend the meeting “socialist renewal and capitalist crisis “, released a text on Saturday, criticizing the use of GMOs in the island.
The signatories expressed their deep concern over the introduction of agricultural practices based on the use of genetically modified organisms, according to information published at http://www.MitchelCohen.com.
“We oppose the use of genetically modified agriculture in our own countries, and ask for a thorough public discussion of this issue in Cuba. We hope that this discussion will lead to Cuba’s total renunciation of the use of genetically engineered agricultural technologies,” says the note.
The list of 18 signatories also included professors from the University of Havana: MarxLenin P. Valdes, Zoila Fajardo, Rita L. Moneia Fernandez and Orlando Cruz Capote.
