The Don't Destroy Research petition is now closed, many thanks to everyone who signed it. Below is the list of signatories and their comments. You can also see a collection of public support for the Rothamsted researchers' appeal here.
The planned direct action against the GM wheat experiment at Rothamsted did not happen on Sunday 27th May. The GM wheat trial is ongoing.

We must always be vigilant about any possible environmental impacts of new technologies and Rothamsted has a great history in doing just that. This is an opportunity to test the impact of a GM crop designed to reduce pesticide use in a controlled way with the safeguards in place to ensure nothing untoward occurs.

As a publicly funded scientist, a father, and a human, I am as interested as anyone in promoting the common good. Destroying research is an act of violence and deprives our societies of potentially important new information.

As a graduate with a degree in agricultural biotechnology, I am 100% behind you in this. Good luck!
