In an open letter published in The Times newspaper, several American celebrities and over 57 million Americans warn UK citizens about the dangers of growing GMO crops, and the importance of speaking out for their right to decide whether or not to grow them.

Susan Sarandon, Daryl Hannah, and Robert Kennedy Jr have joined trade groups like the Food & Water Watch, the Sierra Club, the Rachel Carson Council, Friends of the Earth, the Organic Consumers Association, Dr Bronner’s, and NYR Organic to warn the UK of the peril which GM crops could cause if people don’t speak out in time.
