26.01.2005

There was a night-time visit to Sainsbury's, part of continuing activity against bio-technology.

On the night of tuesday 18th February a group of people visited a Sainsbury's supermarket in Scarborough. Some windows were smashed and "No GM" was spraypainted on the welcome sign at the front of the building. The group escaped unnoticed.

The UK has seen many actions against genetic modification of foods over the last few years. Sainsbury's are currently seen as one of the more tactical targets.
