CSIRO owned by Monsanto

  • Greenpeace says GM crop part of “secret experiment”
  • Activists use whipper snippers to destroy crop trial
  • Feeding tests show “risks associated with GM crops”

GREENPEACE activists have attacked a genetically modified wheat crop being grown at a CSIRO experimental station in Canberra.

The group claims the trial crop is part of a secret experiment which will involve human feeding trials later this year.

Greenpeace said two of its members used whipper snippers to remove the wheat from a CSIRO site at Ginninderra in Canberra’s north.

The attack came after CSIRO denied a Freedom of Information request for more information about the trials.

Greenpeace has called for the organisation to reveal what financial arrangements it has with GM companies such as the US-based multinational Monsanto.
