Help oppose new GM trials

Please donate on the form below to help GM Freeze oppose the latest experimental GM field trials

In January, the John Innes Centre applied for permission to plant GM wheat and broccoli at their farm just outside Norwich. Now Rothamsted Research is asking for consent to plant more GM “fish oil” camelina in Hertfordshire and Suffolk.

GM Freeze has consistently led the opposition to open air field trials in the UK and supported hundreds of people to make their feelings known in a constructive way. Without our input these trials could be simply nodded through.

A full response to each trial 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 like these crop up without notice and need a swift response.

The Rothamsted camelina trial consultation closes on 27 March.

Please give what you can TODAY to help us respond quickly and effectively to all GM field trials.

If no donation form appears above, you can give via paypal or send a cheque (payable to GM Freeze) to: GM Freeze, Open Space Cooperative, 41 Old Birley Street, Hulme, Manchester, M15 5RF.
