The biotech industry is facing major defeats in Australia. Western Australia banned GM crops a few days ago, and now other Australian states are lining up to follow suit.

Second Major State in Australia Bans a GE Crop

"Five years ago Australia, as part of the 'Miami Group', was one of the nations most aggressively promoting GM crops. But things are rapidly changing. On Tuesday Western Australia banned all GM crops. Today a second state, Victoria, has banned GM canola (oilseed rape) to protect its 'clean and green image'. Now groups in neighbouring New Zealand are demanding that they take similar action to protect their image and export markets. With nations across Africa banning GM imports, and with counties and states in the US and Canada now acting to ban GM crops it increasingly looks as if a global ban might now be achievable."
