Roll Up Roll Up, GE Circus Coming To Town

Roll Up Roll Up, GE Circus Coming To Town
Transgenic Circus Coming to Town

This Thursday the Transgenic Circus is rolling into town, accompanied by the ERMA Roadshow. The circus is led by Ringmaster Monsanto and will include ERMA the clown, transgenic animals, Helen Clark the corporate lapdog, and Marian Hobbs with her death defying display of stupidity.

The circus will be held outside of the ERMA Roadshow being hosted at the Michael Fowler Center this Thursday and Friday. It serves to point out that ERMA itself is nothing more than a show, an organisation designed to make the Labour-government appear democratic. The circus follows a morning picket to be held from 8 - 9.30.

"The ERMA Roadshow is biased labour-government propaganda attempting to convince the people of Aotearoa/New Zealand that Genetically Engineered Organisms are safe, containable, and able to co-exist with non-GEOs," said Felicity Perry, spokesperson for the People's Moratorium Enforcement Agency. "ERMA's theory of co-existence is impossible - they can't stop the wind from blowing, bees from cross-pollinating, and organisms from spreading," Perry said.

"ERMA's idea of co-existence - like a circus - is laughable yet disturbing, and proves that it is incapable of protecting New Zealanders from the economic, environmental, and social risks of Genetic Engineering," said Perry.

Roll up! Roll up! Come to the Transgenic Circus, Thursday 13th and Friday 14th of November, 3 - 5pm.
