Mutatotes group is a diverse collection of individuals from around the country. Many of them have spent the past ten years involved in various organisations and local groups successfully campaigning against GM in the UK. They have decided to come together at this time to pool their collective experience and knowledge to enable them to effectively oppose the new GM potato trials.
Following massive local and national resistance BASF have stated they will not be conducting the trial near Hull this year. This can be seen as a clear victory for all who opposed the trial. Consequently, the Cambridge site is now the only location in Britain where GM crops are contaminating the countryside... A protest picnic has been organized for the 1st of July. One down, one to go - let's keep Britain GM free!
GM is a big issue and sometimes it can seem like it's hard for individuals to make a difference. But take heart, for the last three years the British countryside has been free of GM crops, and supermarkets and food manufacturers have not been selling products containing GM ingredients, why? Because people like you joined together and did something!
