Common Dreams - 8/2/2013.
By Andrea Germanos - France's top administrative court overturned on Thursday a government ban on the cultivation of a genetically modified (GMO) corn made by American biotech giant Monsanto. France's Minister of Agriculture, Stéphane Le Foll, pushed back against the court's ruling on Thursday, saying the Counsel of State is "not the decider" of who can and cannot ban GMOs, and said the "government line would be the same: we are not in favor of GMOs."
