Eco-talibans have a destroyed a lot of GMO research fields all over the globe. For example, in 2000, they destroyed an experimental field of transgenic papaya in Lagunillas (Venezuela), an offense that had the approval of the Government, heralding the era of misery that Chávez was to bring about. Until a few days ago, the only transgenic papaya story I knew was the Hawaiian rainbow papayas.
Now, my friend Guido Núñez-Mujica has set out to tell the story of the destruction of the field in Lagunillas with his documentary Silenced Crops:
In order to make the documentary, Guido is raising funds on Kickstarter — I invite you to make a donation, because the project is a vindication of science (a very much needed enterprise in Latin America). If you can’t give money, please consider sharing this article and information.
The more people know, the faster we can reach the goal for the project.
