Swedes Arrested for Creating Human Shield at BASF Warehouse to Thwart GM Potato Plantings

A group of brave Swedes recently decided to hold a sit-in at a BASF warehouse in the northern part of the Scandinavian country to protest the planting of illegal, genetically-modified (GM) potato crops. Greenpeace reported that the individuals had been blocking the entrance to the warehouse in order to stop the biotechnology giant from planting its GM potato, Amflora, which was scandalously approved in the EU without any legitimate, independent safety studies -- however, more recent reports indicate that local police eventually intervened and arrested each individual involved.'
