<nettime> BBB Pies GE Lobbyist in New Zealand

Media Statement


Wellington, October 14

This morning the public face of the Pro GE lobby group New Zealand Life
Sciences Network (LSN), William Rolleston, was on the receiving end of a
hand-to-face pie. The meticulously planned operation left Rolleston
licking his lips just minutes before the AGM of the LSN at the Westpac
Trust Stadium.

The full facial presentation was made by underground bakers of the Pacific
Division of the Biotic Baking Brigade (BBBPD) in response to LSN's
lobbying for the engineering of closer inter-special relationships by
breaking down natural barriers between man and animal.

Special Agent Puha of the BBBPD said: "He was pied for a number of
offences including support of Ag Research in their transgenic servicing of
the controversial Waikato dairy herd; pushing for dismissal of public and
scientific concerns; milking public hopes for medical wonder-drugs; and
for general attempts to turn bull into cream for human consumption. All in
all he was a prime candidate for receiving strategic pastry."

The pie was specially ordered to fit the particular requirements of the
target. Ingredients included cow by-products, GE plant derived oil and
starches, as well as spices, emulsifiers and preservatives.

The preparations for the incident began after the Pacific Division of the
Biotic Baking Brigade (BBBPD) had received orders from headquarters in the
Californian Redwoods to conduct "Operation: Magpie" on an executive of the
Life Sciences Network. Several Special Agents were actively taking part in
the infiltration of the location. There were no losses amongst the agents.

Rolleston is one of several apologists of the GE industry that have been
targeted in pastry uprising throughout the world for crimes against truth,
language, democracy and nature. Others include Bob Shapiro the former
Monsanto CEO; Canadan Prime Minister Jean Chretien and Keith Campbell,
creator of Dolly the cloned sheep and co-author of the modest book "The
Second Creation."

In the words of Special Agent Puha: "The claims of the LSN have been
flying in the face of international concern and common sense for several
years. Now that the tables are turned they cannot wipe their faces clean
anymore. If they try –we will pie."

Note to the editor: The BBBPD has recently established a network of
locally owned organic bakeries throughout the country. It has links to 48
divisions internationally, and has successfully inserted recipes in over
1500 published recipe books in eight different languages.
