In her statement about this, besides announcing she joining a vandalism threat that's euphemistically termed a "decontamination", she makes a claim in justification that is simply false, and that false claim is that no successful disease resistant crops have been developed by genetic engineering methods.
She is misinformed about this.

But let's present the pictures that show how wrong Jenny Jones is.

A good source of information on crop virus resistance is a review by Dennis Gonsalves who developed the disease resistant papaya that's used by growers in Hawaii for many years. His was not a massive commercial operation and basically was an effort by scientists and papaya growers which saved the papaya industry in the islands.
He documents the success of disease resistant papaya in this review, plus giving the full story of it's safety assessment.
There is a fantastic video available where Dennis explains this remarkable development in an inimitable friendly style - link here.
