Don't Destroy Research

Don't Destroy Research

In the summer of 2012, when plant scientists from Rothamsted Research appealed for discussion not destruction of their GM wheat crop trial, the public came out in their support. More than 6,000 people from stay-at-home mums to insurance brokers, air traffic controllers to film makers, signed the Don't Destroy Research petition. The day of action aimed at destroying the wheat crop failed and the trial is ongoing.
