5 September is door de Minister van Infrastructuur en Waterstaat (hierna: IenW) vergunning verleend, met kenmerk GGO C/NL/13/02. De beschikking is op 16 september 2019 aan Suntory Holdings Limited verzonden.
Op 21 oktober 2013 had Suntory Holdings Limited een aanvraag ingediend.
Het zijn snijbloemen van een anjer met gewijzigde bloemkleur. Reageren kon tot 6 weken na 17 september 2019. (uit de bekendmaking.)
De kleur van de bloemen is zeer donker paars tegen het zwart aan. Een anjer met deze kleur benadert deze gentech anjer kleur al, maar is een gewone anjer (Eén na laatste anjer van het rijtje). Waarom dan een GM anjer fabriceren?

We, The European GMO-free Citizens and those from other countries do not want these GM carnations. The mark is GGO C/NL/13/02. (FLO-40685-2, Florigene® Moonvista™).
These plants are GMO´s because their color has been changed by changing their DNA.
They are made to withstand a herbicide that is also a drug for people suffering from diabetes. Although they are not sprayed with the herbicide, what happens when a person eats it petals, only in the EU there is a warning not to eat it.
As other herbicides like Roundup are phased out it is likely they will use this one in GM crops. So it will no longer be a safe drug.
During the development of first GM carnations they tested with human embryo cell lines to see whether it was not toxic.They also let mice drink of water with petals in it and killed the mice afterwards. See page 29.
Members of the EU parlement did not want an equal GM carnation to be placed on the EU market but it was okayed anyway.
Before and sometimes after harvest they can spray the GM carnations with fungicides and probably sometimes with azoles.
In general some azoles are also used as drugs against fungal infections in people.
Many fungi already can withstand those azoles, it is a big problem.
Ecuador is officially a GMO free country but still grows these GM carnations.
We also do not want to prolong the permits of the other GM carnations, because of the harm that can be done to the drugs mentioned above. And we do not want that plants or animals or other species are genetically engineered.
The application runs through the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management.
Carnations are a symbol in many countries.
See how you also can have your say here.
There are enough beautiful natural carnations. Do not mess with Mother Nature!
Latest news: Testbiotech. When it comes to genetically engineered plants, the current standards of #GMO risk assessment are not sufficient to fulfil the #EU legal requirements.
