This kind of 'activism' is founded in ignorance and fear. Like the pitchfork wielding mob, you are simply out to destroy something that scares and confuses you. Please don't destroy valuable research, this kind of thing will help feed the world.

GM has the potential to make the greatest advance in plant and animal breeding since the development of modern wheat. The potential is there, the science is there with the necessary evidence and the need for trials is thus paramount. The dangers can be mitigated so long as the trials are carried out. Action against all GM would be a tragedy for the poorest people on the planet.
