Anti GM Activists Win Court Battle

FOUR GM crop protesters convicted of aggravated trespass for their part in a protest at Munlochy on the Black Isle in August 2001 won their appeal at the High Court in Edinburgh on 7th October 2004. The genetically modified crop trials at Munlochy were the target of a sustained, well-supported and ultimately successful campaign of resistance. This included direct actions when people decontaminated fields by uprooting the GM plants. The authorities eventually abandoned plans for a further GM trial in the Scottish Highlands.
