Anti-GMO protestors throw feces, eggs at European plant breeding conference

Imagine being so upset that a group of plant breeders and botanists are talking about agriculture that you storm in wearing a mask and throw urine, cow poop, and rotten eggs everywhere. Imagine being so influenced by the cult of fear at a harmless substance that you result to throwing a thuggish temper tantrum and smear sh*t all over the walls. You don’t have to imagine anymore because this is exactly what happened at Swiss university ETH Zurich . . . .

This childish act of terrorism was directed at the European Society for Plant Breeding Research. . . .

This is not the first time that Anti-GMO. . .  proponents acted violently because they have no evidence to back up their irrational claims. One pro-GMO group was bombed last year, just one instance of tons that are coming into the light. Anti-GMO people . . . . do this because no sound scientific research agrees with their conclusion that GMO’s are harmful. When you can’t beat them with facts, scare them!

. . . .

Eucarpia themselves released a statement on the issue. . . .
