The planned direct action against the GM wheat experiment at Rothamsted did not happen on Sunday 27th May. The GM wheat trial is ongoing.

Let's at least make decisions on gm on the basis of evidence. Spoiling crops reminds me of the Luddites - and we all know what happened there.

Keep trying. The world needs your research

We cannot fix the problems we face by burying our heads in the sand and as far as I am aware time travel doesn't exist, so living in the middle ages is not an option. Without research and development we stay where we are with a bunch of ignorant Luddites destroying the technologies which might help us. Maybe we can have a a good old book burning after the take back the flour rally, We need to take environmentalism back from the hippies and activists.
Richard Gilbert, Chief Executive
Rational argument won't persuade people unwillig to think rationally. Critical thinking through a proper science-based enducation is vital to really make that change.

The hard work and thought process of passionate researchers working in this area should not be destroyed and its an insane act, which should be stopped. The petition needs to be supported to save this destruction.

Message to the Greens: use honest arguments when trying to win people over.

Am becoming increasingly concerns that Greens are becoming the new religious zealots. Gullible believers of myth & supersistion, following the self righteous in full denial of science and reason...
