Default Rebelion against GE Trees in New Zealand

Earth defenders destroy GM trees in New Zealand | Food Freedom News

"Police are investigating the attack over Easter weekend when 375 radiata pines at Scion’s forestry research institute were either cut or pulled out, reports NZ Newswire.

A colleague from Aotearoa, New Zealand writes, “…a bulletin on a break-in at the Scion site where people cut through the outer perimeter fence and dug under the inner security barrier to destroy the young [GM pine] saplings…GE Free NZ stopped short of condemning the action… I expect that the next few weeks will see raids on the homes and offices of known political activists over the Scion action. It will be sold to the public as an attempt to stop political insurrection. Wish us all luck. ” [Image: 375 genetically modified radiata pine trees at a research site have been destroyed by vandals.

Ouch.... I don't like GM anything but... that's destruction of property and there had to be a better way. Don't get me wrong.... in my dreams could I go out with my chainsaw and do what they did but some acts really should be left in our dreams otherwise LittleGreen gets a bad name for stooping to their level.
