"Stop The Spray" March Across the Golden Gate Bridge

Golden Gate Bridge Protest Against The LBAM Spraying
On May 31st, nearly a thousand protesters marched across the Golden Gate Bridge to protest the proposed spraying of the Bay Area for light brown apple moths. Groups gathered on both sides of the bridge and marched to the middle carrying signs protesting the proposed aerial spraying of a moth pheromone over the parts of the Bay Area in the state sponsored campaign to wipe out the moth.

Last fall, the State of California sprayed pesticides over Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties to control the potentially invasive Light Brown Apple Moth (LBAM). In the following weeks, over 600 people reported adverse health effects, ranging from breathing problems to rashes. Since then, tens of thousands of Californians have called on Governor Schwarzenegger to investigate the health complaints and place a moratorium on future aerial pesticide spraying.
