Organizer/Author
Ag Secretary A.G. Kawamura (California Department of Food and Agriculture) is scheduled to participate in one of several panel discussions at Slow Food Nation, this one entitled: "Building a New Food System: Policy and Planning"

Kawamura gave orders to spray pesticides over the people of Monterey and Santa Cruz in the Fall of 2007, injuring hundreds who reported it (and many more who did not), and killing hundreds of birds. His campaign to eradicate the harmless light brown apple moth from California continues with various toxic methods that are putting us all at risk.
