Help us say NO to more GMOs

Please donate on the form below to help GM Freeze oppose plans for risky GMO field trials

March 2022

Yet another application has been made by GM developers who want to plant experimental GM potatoes in open fields in Norwich and Cambridge. At the same time, questions are being asked about the committee that will advise the government on how to respond.

This is the third new GMO field trial application this year and it’s only March. GM Freeze has led responses to field trials for many years and we are busy examining the fine detail of this application in order to set out the case against the release of yet another untested GMO. We have published an action guide to help others have their say.

However, this work will cost us around £2,000 and GM Freeze is run on a shoestring. We receive grants for some work but that has to be planned well in advance, whereas consultations about specific GMO releases crop up without notice and need a swift response.

The consultation closes on Bank Holiday Monday (2 May). Please give what you can today to help us respond quickly and effectively to this and similar consultations.

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, 80 Cyprus Street, Stretford, Manchester, M32 8BE or contact us on 0845 217 8992 or info[at]gmfreeze.org for details of how to pay directly into our bank account. Unfortunately we aren’t able to take card payments over the phone.
