Government of Parana (Second-largest Soy Producing State in Brazil), 29/07/2008

The government of Peru suspended the production of transgenic crops in the country. The Peruvian Minister of the Environment, Antonio Brack, introduced legislation regulating the generation of genetically modified organisms, quoting risks to health and to biodiversity.

Minister Brack announced that rural producers and organizations of civil society have the right to enforce their manifestations in regards to risks of GMOs. "The country must take a position of utmost caution over genetically modified organisms," he said.

The Peruvian Minister of the Environment is also assessing the position of the 35,000 Peruvian organic producers who criticize GMO production and caution that their crops would be threatened by GM contamination.
