Please Join Us to Commemorate: One Year After the Spray
September 9, 2008 marked the anniversary of the beginning of repeated spraying of pesticides over Monterey and Santa Cruz, as part of the Light Brown Apple Moth Eradication Program. The U.S. and California Departments of Agriculture want us to believe that the tiny, exotic LBAM is a threat to our food supply and ecology, even though it’s done no actual damage to crops nor forests, and there’s no evidence that it ever will. We are told their pesticides are safe and environmentally friendly, but hundreds of people have been injured already, and pets, and hundred of birds have died.
Please take a moment to remember those injured by this ongoing program, both by the aerial apray and other toxic methods, and by pesticides in general, and join us for a commemoration across regional boundaries, with music and sharing. Simultaneous gatherings are scheduled in Berkeley, Santa Cruz and San Rafael.
Please bring songs, stories, ideas to share, and candles,
but please leave scented products at home
Don’t believe the hype: the Light Brown Apple Moth is NOT a threat, but pesticides are a clear and present danger!
Get involved to stop this assault!
IT’S NOT SAFE – IT’S NOT EFFECTIVE – IT’S NOT NECESSARY!
