Report of demonstration:
The demo went off peacefully. About 35 turned up.
Obviously he is very pro GM and is very impressed with the efficient research that is being done to his crop site. We had heard that the beet crop was to be sown into the field but Mr Lodge has told us that it is to be harvested, researched and then sent on to its grave in a land-fill site. He declined to tell us where and said that we would have to contact Monsanto to find out that information.
I understand that he is to hold the trials for the full 3 years.
He had some-one videoing us from the inside window of his house.
