17-03-2004 14:37Here's a cool idea that could certainly catch the public imagination and involvement into the anti-GM campaign. If there was a big take up all over the country (which might require more work than the one person mentioned below can do by himself) then it could have the effect of forcing the government into a further bad PR situation and also force the locations of GM fodder maize sites to be disclosed to anyone that fancies a bit of weeding..
