At about 9pm on New Year’s Eve 1999, the couple entered an office in the Institute of International Agriculture at Michigan State University and doused it with petrol.
The arson, by Mason’s own account, was botched. A fireball set her hair on fire, forcing the couple to run before she even managed to write her slogan, “No GMO”.
The next day, the pair set fire to a logging camp. She has also admitted to burning boats belonging to the owner of a mink farm.
When asked whether the fires might have terrified staff and students at the university, she said: “It was intended as an enlightenment moment that people would see what is going on beneath the surface.”
