There was no police brutality, I was on the bus and these people were lying on the road, which is very dangerous for them. There is no reason to shout abuse and give scientists the finger, we are all polite people and the majority of us work in conservation. Biotechnology is a very broad term, and out of 159 presentation only two mentioned GMOs, one of these was to bring back the American chestnut from the edge of extinction. Please be polite, id be more than happy to talk to people, so long as they are not threatening me!
