Scottish Activists Attack GM Crops

Pure food activists in the UK are far ahead of their North American counterparts in both their radical zeal and public support for their cause, as evidenced by recent events in Scotland.

Last week, Scotland's only full-scale trial of a genetically modified crop, oilseed rape, was attacked twice last week, according to a BBC report. “The incidents occurred shortly after Rural Affairs Minister Ross Finnie rejected calls for the trials to be abandoned,” even though 'it had emerged that non-GM oilseed rape sown as part of the experiment was contaminated with GM seed.'

While the Scottish may not be best known for their culinary achievements they are certainly making themselves visible in the fight against frankenfoods.
