DESTRUCTION OF GOLDEN RICE TRIAL FARM HIT

0

NAGA CITY: Some 3,000 netizens have so far signed an online petition condemning the destruction of the Golden Rice trial farm in Pili, Camarines Sur. Initiated by Indian scientist Channa Prakash, the petition, titled “Global scientific community condemns destruction of field trials of Golden Rice in the Philippines,” is making the round in the Internet through change.org. It is a reaction to the August 8 destruction of the Golden Rice trial farm inside the Department of Agriculture compound which militant groups claimed as a “political statement” against multinational corporations controlling the agriculture industry in the country.
