Interdire la chasse le dimanche Pétition pour l’arrêt de la chasse le dimanche Nous, promeneurs, randonneurs, cueilleurs de champignons, vététistes, sportifs, cavaliers, scolaires, naturalistes, escaladeurs, plaisanciers, et tous les utilisateurs de la nature, nous demandons le droit de pratiquer notre loisir en toute sécurité et sérénité, sans que pèsent sur nous les menaces d’une seule activité : la chasse. Trop souvent, et sur tout le territoire, des chasseurs interdisent les chemins, posent des pancartes menaçantes, agressent parfois verbalement les autres usagers de la nature, sans aucun esprit de partage ni de respect. Même les animaux domestiques font les frais de cette agressivité. Constatant que les chasseurs, qui représentent moins de 2% de la population française, agissent souvent comme si la nature n’appartenait qu’à eux, nous demandons un partage plus équitable de l’espace et du temps, et demandons l’arrêt de la chasse le dimanche. Une trêve de la chasse pour des promenades en sécurité

Tell Supermarkets No to Frankenfish It’s time to take a stand and tell major U.S. supermarkets to boycott genetically engineered salmon commonly referred to as “Frankenfish.” Many major stores, including Target, Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods have already agreed to not sell the genetically engineered fish. The call is now going out to several other supermarkets, like Safeway to do the same. The FDA is currently in the process of deciding whether or not the genetically modified salmon will be allowed on the market. If “Frankenfish” is approved, it could appear in stores as early as 2014 and would be the first genetically engineered animal determined safe for consumption. Several petitions online are calling for the ban of genetically modified salmon based on the potential personal and environmental harm the production and consumption of the fish could cause. “Frankenfish” are engineered to grow to market size in just 16-18 months compared to the usual 30 months required. Sign the Petition: Say No to Genetically Modified Fish

Canada approves export of genetically modified salmon eggs Canada will allow genetically modified salmon eggs to be produced and exported — but no way in hell will the eggs be allowed to hatch on Canadian soil. The GM salmon was developed by AquaBounty, which blended genetic material from Chinook salmon and from another type of fish called ocean pout into the DNA of Atlantic salmon. That helps accelerate growth rates. The eggs will be produced at a hatchery on Canada’s Prince Edward Island and exported to be hatched at a site in Panama. There, the fish will be fattened up before being exported to the U.S. for sale. Worries abound that the genetically modified fish will escape and spread their altered genes to wild populations of salmon and trout. The decision marked the first time any government had given the go-ahead to commercial scale production involving a GM food animal.The move clears the way for AquaBounty to scale up production of the salmon at its sites in PEI and Panama in anticipation of eventual approval by American authorities.

Réformons la Politique Agricole Commune pour une agriculture et une alimentation d'avenir #PAC #ifieldgood Au début de l'été 2013, l’Union Européenne doit acter la réforme de sa Politique Agricole Commune (PAC) pour les sept prochaines années. Une réforme européenne dont les conséquences peuvent paraître lointaines… mais qui nous concerne tous, au même titre que les 500 millions de consommateurs et les 11,7 millions d’agriculteurs européens ! Mise en place il y a 50 ans, pour garantir l’indépendance... Mise en place il y a 50 ans, pour garantir l’indépendance alimentaire de l’Europe, la PAC fixe encore aujourd’hui des règles communes en matière agricole pour l'ensemble des 27 Etats membres. Certes, la PAC n’est pas la seule responsable, mais son rôle dans l'orientation des systèmes agricoles et alimentaires est incontestable. J’appelle les gouvernements français et européens bénéficiant de la PAC à soutenir une réforme qui permette le développement d’un autre modèle agricole basé sur la qualité et la proximité, et inspiré des pratiques de l’agriculture biologique et de l’agroécologie.

Canada Approves Genetically-Modified Salmon While Canadians were preoccupied with Senate scandals and Rob Ford’s latest debacle, Environment Canada quietly approved genetically-modified (GM) salmon eggs and salmon for farming off the country’s coast. Critics worry that insufficient testing has been done on the “frankenfish” that may escape fish farms and endanger wild Atlantic salmon worldwide. The decision announced by Environment Canada on Monday leaves many people wondering whether Environment Canada—Canada’s primary governmental department charged with working to preserve and protect the natural environment—is performing its duties to Canadians. Environment Canada’s decision came on the heels of American corporation’s Aquabounty Technologies application to sell the genetically-modified salmon in the country. News sources indicate that Health Canada has yet to approve the GM salmon. In the newspaper article, Aquabounty’s Chief Executive Officer Ron Stotish said: ”At the moment, everything is still as it was.

Tell President Obama to veto the Monsanto Protection Act! A copy of your letter of support will be delivered to President Obama, your Member of Congress and Senators: Dear President Obama, I urgently request that you veto HR 933. I am outraged that the “farmer assurance provision”, Section 735, currently included in HR 933, was not struck from the Continuing Resolution spending bill passed by Congress. Though wrapped in a “farmer-friendly” package, this provision is simply an industry ploy to continue to sell genetically engineered (GMO) seeds even when a court of law has found they were approved by USDA illegally. The judicial review process is an essential element of U.S law and serves as a vital check on any federal agency decision that may negatively impact human health, the environment or the livelihood of farmers, yet this provision seeks an end-run around such judicial review by preemptively deciding that industry can set its own conditions to continue to sell biotech seeds, even if a court may find them to have been wrongfully approved.

Canada sued over approval of “toxic” GMO salmon Canadian officials ventured into uncharted legal and ecological waters when they approved the cultivation and export of genetically engineered salmon eggs last year. And now environmental groups have sued the government, claiming the approval illegally disregarded the potential for the transgenic fish to become an invasive species. Quick background: AquaBounty Technologies Inc. has developed Atlantic salmon that grow more quickly than their natural cousins, thanks to the presence of DNA from Chinook salmon and from an eel-like fish called the ocean pout. Some environmentalists worry that the GMO fish will escape, breed, and outcompete wild species. “Our concern is basically, we don’t think they’ve done the due diligence to assess the toxicity of the eggs,” said Susanna Fuller, marine conservation coordinator with the [Ecology Action Centre].

Interdisez les pesticides néonicotinoïdes pour sauver les #Abeilles Nous avons réussi ! l’Union des apiculteurs, les associations environnementales et des milliers de citoyens vivant partout en Europe ont convaincu la majorité des États membres de soutenir le plan de la Commission européenne et de bannir trois des pesticides toxiques pour les abeilles. Hier, quinze d’entre eux (dont la France) ont voté en faveur de cette mesure, qui prendra effet le 1er december prochain. La Commission européenne a basé sa proposition sur un rapport de l’Autorité Européenne de Sécurité des Aliments, dont les conclusions rendues en janvier dernier soulignaient les risques pour les abeilles de ces trois substances (imidacloprid, clothianidin et thiamethoxam), suggérant fortement de les bannir. Ce vote marque enfin la reconnaissance du combat contre ces insecticides neurotoxiques. Cliquez ici et ici pour lire nos réactions dans la presse. Les abeilles du monde entier sont en train de mourir, et leur disparition menace la chaîne alimentaire et la biodiversité.

Friends of the Earth Costco is one of the largest retailers of salmon and seafood in the U.S. and is one of the last large retailers that hasn’t yet made a commitment to keep GMO salmon off its shelves. Sign the petition: Tell Costco to keep GMO salmon off its shelves! Dear Mr. Jelinek, As you may be aware, the U.S. More than 60 grocery retailers across the U.S., including Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Aldi, Target, Kroger and Safeway, have made commitments to not sell genetically engineered salmon and other seafood. I urge Costco to join these other leaders in making a commitment to not sell GMO salmon or other seafood. Sincerely,

PETITION - Projet d'aéroport Notre-Dame des Landes : Non merci !
