GENETIC ENGINEERING ON TRIAL!
On 3rd August 1998 twelve people were arrested in connection with the
destruction of a test site of genetically engineered herbicide-resistant
Two women are now going on trial to defend their actions. The women admit that
they removed the genetically engineered maize, and now is the chance to prove
in a court that the action taken was necessary and in the public interest. The
GE maize was being grown next to an organic farm, with no safeguards to
cross-pollination with the organic maize next door. It was also right next to
bee hives whoes occupants visited the maize and produced honey that was at
of being contaminated by GE pollen. All test sites are grown in the open air,
with nothing to stop random and unpredictable genetically engineered organisms
irreversibly entering our environment and our food chain. The test site had
been ruled unlawful in an earlier court hearing, but the judge claimed he was
powerless to order its removal.
Two women are charged with 'conspiracy to cause criminal damage'. The
damage has been calculated at a riduclous £605,000.
This is an unmissable opportunity to show what the public really thinks about
releasing genetically engineered material into the environment.
Show them you agree that the removal of the local GE test site was necessary
and in the public interest.
There will be banners and music and a party atmosphere as genetic engineering
goes on trial.
Please feel free to bring your own banners and instruments also.

THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO SAY NO TO THE GENETIC EXPERIMENT!
