Forbidding the use of GM products is a crime against humanity, says vice-president of New Zealand Federated Farmers

Forbidding the use of genetically modified products is a crime against humanity, says Federated Farmers vice-president William Rolleston. [...] ”Public attitudes have changed. The community isn't so opposed to it [GM]. I'm not saying that they want it as a whole, but there's been a bit change in the last 10 years. [...] Years ago when he attended a biotech conference, Dr Rolleston and others were assigned security guards at the hotel to keep out protesters. ”A number of us were assigned personal bodyguards because the threat was real.” However, when he attended a recent conference on the issue there were only about 30 protesters over three days, Dr Rolleston said.
