It is not logical to stop science and progress without any justified reason! At all!!
Violence against scientific research is never acceptable.
Products of modern biotechnology already in the market are proven to be useful and safe through carefully designed scientific studies. Research should continue to develop more of such products and to evaluate their safety and potential contribution in solving current and emerging problems.

It is astonishing that at this time and age where much of our lives driven by science, yet we are still at the defensive front.
science is the future!
This kind of research is important. There's no denying that. Violence and anger is a common response when faced with something you don't understand, but it gets you nowhere.

The problem with violence is it reduces all arguments to whoever is the biggest bully... Science, in contrast, seeks to understand the real nature of life, without blind hatred, stupidity or bias.

YES to discussion and exchange of ideas, NO to irrationalism and violence
To stop the vandalisation of research trials by ideologically impaired.
Violence and destruction brings only more instability. Congratulations and thank you to the scientists who continue to contribute to the important body of research that will help us feed the world.
I'm a scientist myself and i'm feeling for the people and the field this was done to
Justice, fairness, decency, principles, progress, reasoning, humanity, responsibility, life.
Violence and vandalism are simply unacceptable. People are free to express their opposition to an institution or to certain scientific development, but not to destroy other people's work! I hope researchers will not give in to violence and threats!
Those people have to answer for this in tribunals
There is no evolution without science. Decisions need to be made based on numbers and data not on money driven politics.
Scientists need Freedom to do their research. No violence. These women don't know what they are doing, they are being completely manipulated by the extreme Brazilian left wing. This needs to be stopped.
Anti transgenic organizations and protestors resort to violence, vandalism and scare mongering because reasoned debate is useless for them. I'm signing because I want to stand up for reason and a civilized society.

We use science to answer our questions. No-­‐one has the right to destroy these 'potential' answers. No-­‐one has the right to deny us knowledge.
I stand with the scientists who are researching ways that can better agricultural practices and promote sustainability.
Violence disrupts learning, which will have negative impact on meeting the challenges brought about by a growing population and fixed resources (land).
Don't destroy potential solutions
I am a brazilian scientist and I am against vandalism in science. We need safety and support to keep doing research without any fear or intimidation.
Please add my name. Is anybody making a historical record of all vandalisms being done? I can remember some (Bov_ in France, Wheat in the UK, gloden rice in Phillipines, and so on), but a careful registration of the many incidents will be a relevant argument.
This is political eco-­‐terrorism, it goes beyond local criminal acts as it involves multi-­‐national advocacy organizations which foment this violence through disinformation campaigns. It's using food as a weapon to create politically destabilizing fears and food insecurity.

I I am a firm believer that science must advance no matter what some minority thinks. We must condemn vehemently all actions like the one that happened in Itapetininga. Obviously, there is never a good reason to stop science progress, but in this particular case it was really totally unacceptable and beyond comprehension for us scientists, because it is something sponsored by political parties and motivated by political reasons, in a gross attempt to get political dividends from a serious matter. This was such a sad happening that put the Brazilian Science to mourn and the Brazilian scientists to shame!

I'm against anti-­‐science in all its forms. These people are the equivalent of creationist book burners, and climate change deniers.
In modern world there are no reasons for attitudes like the ones described. We should fight for a better world and Science has a role to play.
I respect the biotechnology in agriculture. I feel sad about the violence and lack of information of this people. Years of research missed.
I support the application of science for the advancement of plant biotechnology to feed a growing population.

Progress has always been fraught with frightened decent. The only way to fight these actions is to rebuild with pride and educate every time until the hate dwindles to a lone voice wrapped in a sandwich board.
I am an economista working with innovation in agriculture
We need to strongly oppose those who destroy scientific endeavors on the basis if ill-­‐founded superstitions.
I deplore the destruction of legitimate scientific research intended for the good of humanity. these people are vandals and bigots and should be caught and jailed. In the meantime, we should show our disgust with them
Ignorance must not hold us back, especially when science is done to help society
Responsible use of GMO organims is key in curing diseases and developing sustainable crops for the future.
Stop vandalizing science! Scientists should not be subject to threats of violence and intimidation in conducting their work.
I'm a scientist believing in the advantages of many GMO's. Additionally, Scientific work should not be destroyed on believes of some, especially when the material and tests are approved by safety and regulatory agency.
Violence and vandalism should never be used to impose ideologies. Science is important for development and well being, it should be supported and not attacked
We all need science to be free to advance knowledge just as we need all forms of human inquiry. If you find an idea wrong or even dangerous, you counter it with a better idea not attempts at suppression with coercion.
This is going back to medieval times. Science development is extremely important for humankind welfare and survival. The limitation of scientists work and creativity is a very good sensor of secular societies. Every point in history where scientists were oppressed we will probably have a sick society, with low education standards and barbarian practices. The limits of Science must be discussed in scientific and ethical terms, not with machetes in hands.
We are tired of ignorance and prejudice ruling the world.

condemn the vandalism of scientific research facilities and the associated disruption of biosafety deliberations in Brazil. We urge scientists to continue their important research and not to give in to violence and intimidation.
Big ideas should never be stopped by small minds
Violence and run in other peoples property is not an acceptable way to get policy change within agriculture.
Organized groups engaged in Violence against science in Brazil are openly supported by political parties like PT (Partido dos Trabalhadores, and tolerated and protected by the Brazilian federal government. Brazilian society must react against this imoral and unsustainable situation.

It is absolutely unacceptable the use of force to prevent the democratically validated adoption of plant biotechnology. It's inexcusable the attempt to justify vandalism as occurred in Brazil now, with pseudo-­‐scientific arguments, objectively false. Note that these events are replicas of what is occurring in the world, like the attempt to prevent the use of t "golden rice" or the destruction of genetically modified wheat trials in Australia . All who value the creation and use of knowledge should speak out against these situations.

I am a retired university professor and a biologist (geneticss and molecular biology). The people who is doing this bioterrorismm are mainly from the MST (Movimento Sem Terras = Landless Movement). This movement is politically involde, and has tne support of the Brazilian Governement of President Dilma Rousseff and her Partido dos Trabalhdores PT = (Workers' Party). So, I recommend care on dealing with these bioterrorists since, being against them is going against the PT and the current Brazilian government.

Ideology should not trump empirical evidence, GMOs are safe.
The Left broadly has to come to grips with the fact that its radical populist stand against biotechnology may be a profound disservice to the human prospect. Science advocates, in turn, should pay close heed to the dislocation of Brazilian people in the interior and ongoing rainforest destruction. These two concerns need to proceed hand in hand.

Completely against this outrageous and intolerable violence against scientists and scientific progress!
Science represents the quest to understand the world around us. The opposite of that is to live in ignorance. I strongly oppose any artificial restrictions on learning, especially through violence.
Bioterrorism No!
The destruction of scientific facilities can only be the direct product of irrational fear and ignorance. Scientists need to educate people in the benefits of science in a violence-­‐free environment, and with their work being respected by the general population.
For the sake of the environment, thoughtful science must preside over brute ignorance.

The burgeoning human population of the 21st century needs much more food, fuel and fiber. Traditional plant breeding, especially for trees, require decades to produce improved varieties. By contrast, Genetic Engineering rapidly improves plants, in a targeted fashion. The resulting GE improved cultivars are safe, especially when grown with ecological reserves of non-­‐modified plants. GE technology is essential to increase food and fiber in the 21st century.
I stand by scientists and their right to conduct research without harassment and vandalism or destruction to valuable research.
There is no justification for destruction of legal, transparent science research. The disruption of regulatory activities weakens government's ability to uphold safety and compliance.
Science is for good and Violence is not

Violence and vandalism are never the answer when you protest something. You get dismissed like a toddler having a tantrum. With sadly much more damage. And we all know what happens when we give in to a tantrum...
Such a catastrophic setback is bad for everybody, there's not a single explanation worthy of justifying this crime..

Im very much concerned in ending hunger while counting with sustainable methods; this can only be reached with science based technology, real knowledge, and responsibility. I find vandalism, most of all, irresponsible, and careless of human needs.

We should not allow that obscure prejudices lead to violence against science, which is one of the most important and beautiful humankind contributions to the cosmos.
I also consider an act of vandalism and violence what happened against forest biotech research in Brazil and would expect a positive and effective action of government to protect companies that work in areas of research and development.
Scientific Research can not give up in to violence
Scientific research is there for the benefit of people and the planets future. Seeing mindless, destructive protests like this in Brasil make me wonder how long we will survive a species without science.
Scientific knowledge is a prize for humanity.
The purpose of research is to generate information for decision making. Destroying research therefore is denying people access to information which should not be tolerated in the 21st century.
Fear of Science and Technology will always exist in those who refuse to understand and acknowledge our achievements... Scientists and Researchers need to unite against violence in our fields and begin to place pressure upon the "authorities" to implement harsher laws against violent behaviour by anti-­‐science fundamentalists...

Vandalism and violence is not a path to civil discourse.
This trend is outrageous! In Hawaii papaya farmers have had thousands of their GE Rainbow papaya trees cut down by those who call themselves "Eco Warriors". They have no respect for the time, effort, money, and love that the farmers put in to their crops. This destruction of GE material in Brazil is a sad commentary on the lack of science understanding in the world today. The people who have done this deed have done it out of fear. That fear is born from the fact that they have a lack of understanding of science. Those of us who are scientists need to do a better job of educating those who are not to avoid this type of scenario being played out over and over again!
Violence is not the answer to any problem or issue. It gives those opposed to this science of biotechnology a "black eye" and reduces any credibility they might have on the world stage.

We can be civil even if we have a difference of opinion. More importantly, sound evidence to prove a cause is necessary.
The furthering of agricultural science is vital to meet human and environmental needs. Vandalism does not contribute to Brazilian prosperity.
Masked hoodlums do little to foster good science
I support continued technological advancement.
Scientific research and facilities should not be destroyed, and scientists should not be subject to threats of violence and intimidation in conducting their work.
Science is important and scientists should not have to fear violence or the destruction of their research.
Against dark age people, that are violent and stupid. Interesting that science is good for them when they sick, injured and enjoy all other technological advancement that stems from scientific research.
Science must not give in to violence
There is no reason for violence
I'm a Brazilian Scientist and I'm working to Food Safety not only for Brazil but for the world; and I'm against any kind of violence.
SCIENCE SHOULD BE RESPECTED AND PROTECTED AND ANY KIND OF VIOLENCE SHOULD BE STOPPED.
For the Vandals receive adequate punishment and continue not being treated as revolutionary heroes.
Violently opposing to a useful technology that can help people, including poor people, means damaging them.
I_m a citizen concerned about the future of the environment. Some of us have just arrived to this world, so we still have a lot to live, some people are about to leave, are you gonna leave us in a ruined world? I will defend my right to live against any majority anywhere, anytime

I work with Science and I conden everything violence way. I respect any think different of mine, but The convencimen must be with date and facts.
I am distressed by the lack of education regarding GM technology and condemn the vandalism on years of quality research.
I was very disappointed to read about this development in Brazil. Brazil has made so much progress on adoption of innovative Agricultural technologies to improve productivity. Everything I have read indicates that there has been significant economic gains from adoption of these technologies and I fail to understand how this violent activity will help. I strongly urge more dialogue to understand the concerns that drove people to take this action. Rashmi Nair
Genetic improvements of plants and farm animals have helped humanity in immeasurable ways over our history. Had we not pursued the path of science and technology we would be starving for food today. Science technology on their own do not solve human problems but they are central to our civilization. Science and technology around GM plants offer many opportunities for improving productivity with environmental care. Vandalism of the kind reported in this petition is unacceptable in any society and nation. Brazil is a leader in sustainable forestry and pursuit of of this science is a part of that journey. As a biological scientist I urge the Government of Brazil and it's great people to hold those vandals accountable for this action and take preventive actions against such violent methods and to support progress in Brazilian science.
That is not the way they will make a society better. That is insanity.

I TOTALLY CONDEMN ANY FORM OF VANDALISM AGAINST BIOTECH RESEARCH.EVERY SCIENCE SHOULD BE GIVEN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY TO EITHER SWIM OR SINK.
Violence against science is violence against freedom and democracy. If we do not stand up we will abolish education and rational thinking in favor of "gut feeling" and propaganda.
The real understanding has to be reach by studing and evaluating the benefits and possible negative or positive impacts of a new tecnology. Let's aim for a better future for our kids, providing them the best tecnology possible, we get have crops ready to face upcoming enviromental changes in a way to provide the basical needs of the growing population.

So scientific researchers continue your work and do not give in to intimidation from science haters.They will be fine with time and accept the reign of science.

Research and development is the primary vehicle enabling humanity to meet our infinite needs from our finite resources in a sustainable way.

This demonstration suggests that the call should have been heeded sooner.

GMOs need to be thoroughly researched, not destroyed before we can learn anything. The world is changing and science is our only way of keeping up. Those who think going back to the "ways of the past" forget that we no longer live in the past. It's time to discover the future.
Logic, not violence, must help move us forward! Unsubstantiated fears about GM/GMOS only work to prompt violence and destruction. We must work to educate people and stop allowing such gross acts of ignorance set us back.
I support GM testing (and science!)
we need to take care of the technology and those working with it to meet the needs of our future selves
Scientists are trying to develop the society we're live today and find new economic and ecological ways of improve nowadays technology. The investigation process is something that can take years, sometime even a life, It's very wrong destroy someone passion and work like that, when they are improving our lives!
I give a damn about science....
I am troubled by the apparent growing antipathy toward science globally. I am especially disturbed by the actions against scientists and the destruction of their research. Such actions must be stopped.

Without research we will not be able to feed the ever growing world population. Law makers all over the hand should join hands with researchers to ensure that people who vandalize scientific trials approved by the government regulatory bodies are condemned and punished.
Stop science ignorance, stop the fear.
I disagree with all type of violence, mainly when it is pushed by politician reasons. In Brazil, we are facing this kind of sad violence. Violence against to science which will impact the future.
scientific research is key for progress of humanity and we must stop extremist stopping scientific research. Junk science and fear mongering will only take our society back.
Scientific experiments needs to be done. This non sense need to stop!
Violence stops scientific progress. In this case it resulted in the loss of many years of technology development. I condemn this type of vandalism.

Those who do not care about truth or the development of our capacities are a danger both to our civilsation and our planet. In a rapidly altering environment we need to explore all viable technological options while remaining tolerant and open in debate.
We are struggling with the same anti-­‐science vandalisms here in Europe
Whatever the purpose of research, whatever one's belief, Science and public scientific investigations should be respected allover the world. This is among the most essential values for humanity. Should I say that I consider myself as a "green" : no excuses !
Science is the only reliable means we have at finding out what the world is really like. Those who would destroy scientific work are against knowledge, against wisdom, and should be stopped.
The only way to prove anything is by conducting research. This prevents any conclusions one way or another from being reached. Also, destruction of property is a criminal act and scientist should not be subject to criminal behaviors.
I am a scientist in the biotech field, bust above all, a citizen against all forms of violence
I worked on consequences of genetic modifications of plants and I Have been exposed to the same type of vandalism by supposed "ecologists" who destroyed part of our experimental material.I strongly resent this type of violence.

It is important that this testing continue. It is important that people understand that GM crops are safe and require fewer inputs than similar non-­‐GM plants. Testing is an important way to verify and refine these benefits.
I oppose vandalism of any kind. There are more constructive ways to express one's dislike of genetic modification. Given the state of the planet, GM may be very useful for sustaining humans in the long term, unless they would like to forego their creature comforts and, more importantly, reduce the human population significantly (i.e., stop having babies).
#ScientistsArePeople
I support biotechnology.
This vandalism is significant far beyond the material value of the plants. The loss of this resource will have greatly extended ramifications. Brazilian officials must prosecute this crime aggressively.
Open communication, and demonstrations, are welcome so that all views are considered. But violence that destroys trees and disrupts open deliberation has no place in a democratic society.

These people need to be engaged in the process of developing Brazil's economy by supporting innovation and enterprise aimed at improving agricultural and forest productivity with minimal environmental impact.
Anti-­‐science violence needs to stop!
Progress in Life Sciences must be protected from the vandalism of the anti-­‐science organizations. That I have teached recurrently for 45 years in my plant breeding lectures in Finnish universities.
thats just too absurd.
Science is how we test for safety and effectiveness. Don't destroy science, it's for everyone.
As an advocate of science, particularly biotechnology, these ideologically-­‐driven attacks are appalling. It is time for the scientific community to stand up to these criminals, rather than roll over and submit.
Os manifestantes nao tem propositos claros e a pesquisa de longo prazo, nao pode ser comprometida por pessoas sem causa.
Research=Evolution. Vandalize it is crazy.
Development and Human Well-­‐being of tomorrow strictly depend on Science of today. Plant and forest Biotechnology have so far helped to better understand what nourish the world, make live possible and improve well-­‐being by creating new products and renewable energy. By destroying one experiment, you kill Science, delay the development and improve hunger and poverty.

I abhour this behaviour , I hope they are arrested for their criminal actions .
I condemn the vandalism of scientific research facilities and the associated disruption of biosafety deliberations in Brazil. We urge scientists to continue their important research and not to give in to violence and intimidation.

Ignorance is not bliss. It's just stupid.
Anti-­‐Science has no right to stop progress.
Scientists should be free to conduct responsible research in the national and international interest without fear of violence or intimidation of any kind.

I am a scientist working in Plant Biotech
GM trees have been developed and studied for many years-­‐ There is much knowledge regarding the safety of these trees, data has been collected and there are many papers supporting the safety of GM to environment.
Violence does not help the debate and does not lead to better decisions.
I support development of GM crops to improve lives and protect the planet.
ignorance and general stupidity of mankind
Do I need more reason than the title? Science and conversation instead of violence please.
Science and scientific testing are essential in addressing the many challenges in the production of food, feed and biomass. Destroying such research is immoral.
Destroying research facilities that can provide data to address biosafety deliberations is the antithesis of science -­‐ let the scientists gather their data without intimidation and evaluate it -­‐ that is how science is done.

Defend scientific research!
It's necessary respect science to secure its contribution for sustainable development. Vandalism is a indication of totalitarianism, the path used by those ones that want to impose their ideologies without respecting the development of science and knowledge.

Ignorance is no excuse for mindless vandalism
Violence is never a good option
To deliberately destroy work intended to halt the destruction of the Amazon basin is utterly barbaric and mad. We cannot allow this to to dissuade scientific research and advancement!
I am a plant geneticist
It is important that scientists show their support for those affected. We need a factual debate about GE crops, not vandalism.
I condemn the vandalism of scientific research facilities and the associated disruption of biosafety deliberations in Brazil. We urge scientists to continue their important research and not to give in to violence and intimidation.
I want to support science.
I believe in science it saved my life. I was going to an abusive church and the enlightenment of science stopped me from committing suicide.
Support for science and against violence
Science is necessary to allow humans to grow with as little impact on the environment as possible. This research is vital and must continue.
What we need the least is another age of ignorance and fear-­‐mongering.
