Mothers Against Genetic Engineering (MAdGE) are mounting a campaign against genetically engineered food and organisms in New Zealand. This is their billboard. About which may I simply say “Yikes.”
“New Zealanders are allowing a handful of corporate scientists and ill-informed politicians to make decisions on the ethics of GE. Our largest science company, AgResearch, is currently putting human genes into cows in the hope of creating new designer milks. The ethics of such experiments have not even been discussed by the wider public. How far will we allow them to go? Where is the line in the sand? Why is the government lifting the moratorium on GE when we have not even had a public debate on ethics?” said Alannah Currie, MAdGE founder and billboard designer.
