Help oppose the planting of experimental GM wheat

Please donate on the form below to help GM Freeze keep voicing your concerns about open releases of experimental GMOs

GM developers have received  permission to plant highly experimental GM wheat in a field near St Albans. Field trials always carry a risk of escape and wheat is a staple food in the UK so we should not be taking this kind of risk.

Thanks to the generosity of GM Freeze supporters we mounted a strong response to this trial and are continuing to make the case against this crazy approach in the press.

A full trial response costs around £2,500 and GM Freeze is run on a shoestring. We receive grants for some work but that has to be planned well in advance, whereas trial applications crop up without notice and need a swift response.

If no donation form appears above or if you prefer to pay in another way, you can send a cheque (payable to GM Freeze) to: GM Freeze, Open Space Cooperative, 41 Old Birley Street, Hulme, Manchester, M15 5RF or contact us on 0845 217 8992 or info[at] for details of how to pay into our bank account.
