[escepticos] Mártires transgénicos
¡Qué error, qué inmenso error! ¿Serán burros? ¿No se les ocurre que esto
es tanto como "ofrecer" mártires a las grandes multinacionales de los
alimentos transgénicos? Cuando no se dispone de razones científicas, se
recurre a la violencia..... ¿Nueva versión (transgénica) del Chicago años 20?
