More than 50 organizations, networks and movements from Brazil and around the world denounce the release into the environment and the commercial use of a new transgenic eucalyptus from the Brazilian company Suzano Papel e Celulose.

Organizations demand the immediate revocation of the license granted for the use of Suzano GE eucalyptus 751KO32, as well as the action and intervention of the Federal Public Prosecution Service to revoke the decision made by the National Technical Commission on Biosafety (CTNBio), a decision made without a full public debate, especially in regions of Brazil that have been exposed for many years to eucalyptus monoculture.
