Scoop Images: The Naked Truth About GE

Protestors spell out the "naked truth" about GE

Ten naked protestors bared all for their cause spelling out "No GE" with their bodies on parliament's lawn today.

The government is expected pass the third reading of the New Organisms and Other Materials Bill.

Valerie Morse of Capital GE-Free said, "the nudeness is to highlight the vulnerability of the New Zealand environment to GE contamination."

The protest was a precursor to Saturday's demonstrations throughout New Zealand against lifting the moratorium.
