STOP GE TREES!
I demand that a moratorium is placed on any further development, field trialling or release of GE trees in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The full extent of their social and ecological risks have not been assessed. All plantings of GE trees, whether field trials or plantations, are currently prohibited and should remain so.
I support and join the efforts of all people, organizations and social movements globally in rejecting all GE trees outright and declaring that GE trees will only worsen, not help address, the multiple crises we face.
