Panel Discussion and Community Brainstorm about all aspects of the LBAM eradication program and possible actions to stop it

The U.S. and California Departments of Agriculture want us to believe that the tiny, exotic Light Brown Apple Moth is a threat to our food supply and ecology, though it’s done no actual damage to crops nor forests, and there’s no evidence that it will. We’re told the pesticides they’re using are safe and environmentally friendly, but hundreds of people have been injured already, and pets, and hundred of birds have died. Take part in a brainstorm about what to do when this toxic pesticide program comes to your town, with:

Dr. Daniel Harder

Executive Director of the UC Santa Cruz Arboretum, Adjunct Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department, Co-Author of the New Zealand report which contradicts the CDFA’s claims that the LBAM is a threat, and reveals that pesticides are the problem.

David Theodoropoulos

Biologist, Seedsman, and Author of “Invasion Biology: Critique of a Pseudoscience” which reveals the disturbing connections between invasive species councils and the pesticide industry.

and others, including:

Caltrans workers poisoned by ongoing roadside spraying speak out!
