Background: This effort was prompted when California Agricultural Secretary A.G. Kawamura began aerial spraying of pheromones and other undisclosed and potentially harmful chemical constituents over populated urban areas of Monterey County to combat the Light-brown Apple Moth (LBAM) against tremendous public outcry. Since, the Department of Agriculture is making plans to continue aerial spraying and expand spraying not only in Monterey County including Seaside, Marina, Pacific Grove, and Pebble Beach, but into neighboring counties like Santa Cruz. Our representatives including Assemblymember Laird and Monterey Mayor Chuck Della Sala seem to be powerless to stop it. The author of the petition believes that every individual has the right to choose not to be sprayed without consent unless there is a clear and present public health danger. Many are now reporting health problems since the start of the spray program. The citizens of California need to stand together with one voice that tells our politicians we will not stand for this. NO ONE has the right to spray us with ANYTHING without our consent. Let's take back control of the air we breathe!
