In a recent article in the Parliament magazine 22 February 2010, Corinne Lepage MEP describes a court case she has been defending of behalf of HEAL partner NGO in France, Mouvement pour les droits et le respect de generations futures (MDRGF).

MDRGF came under attack from the French grape growers’ association following a report published by MDRGF on pesticides and grapes. Ms Lepage, who has since won the case, considers that it to have been a test case against whistleblowers.

She says that not-for-profits need to be protected from this type of attack from industry. It quotes the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) as saying that 'not-for-profit groups bring the evidence of independent scientists and consumers affected by pesticides to key debates.. so that the industry voice does not go unchallenged.'
