Coalition challenges DuPont/Environmental Defense effort as propaganda

In an “open letter to the international nanotechnology community”, the coalition, which includes Greenpeace and the United Steelworkers of America, says, “We strongly object to any process in which broad public participation in government oversight of nanotech policy is usurped by industry and its allies.”
