Default LOW TURNOUT FOR ANTI-GM RALLY SENDS CLEAR MESSAGE

LOW TURNOUT FOR ANTI-GM RALLY SENDS CLEAR MESSAGE

The anti-GM movement barely managed to scrape up 100 protesters for a
lunchtime rally at Parliament today to oppose the lifting of the moratorium
next month.
"The low turnout today sends a clear message to politicians about how
accurate claims there is widespread opposition to genetic modification are,"
Chairman of the Life Sciences Network Dr William Rolleston said.
"The public would be forgiven for not realising there has been a campaign of
protest action around the country for the last 10 days.
"We would imply from the low turnout in Wellington and other centres around
the country that the vast majority of the public accepts that case-by-case
assessment of applications to use GM is the appropriate way forward for New
Zealand," concluded Dr Rolleston.
