Note: Steven Norris is a farmer and professor living near Asheville, NC. In late May of this year, he participated in major protests against the Tree Biotechnology 2013 Conference along with GJEP, Dogwood Alliance, Earth First!, REAL Cooperative and other organizations. GJEP is deeply appreciative of the work of Steve and others who took bold action that week to stop the threat of genetically engineered trees.
Below is the statement that Steve wrote for his court appearance.
You can take action to stop the threat of GE trees too. Please sign on to the petition calling on the USDA to reject ArborGen’s application for legalization of GE eucalyptus throughout the southeastern US here: http://bit.ly/stop-arborgen
