Stop Spraying Roundup/Glyphosate Poison in North Otago

Stop spraying public places and road verges due to the human health damages caused by Glyphosate and the detrimental effect Glyphosate has on bees, worms and beneficial soil microbes.
Ban Glyphosate spray in North Otago

Why is this important?

Presence of glyphosate know as Roundup, in our food chain is now considerable in New Zealand/Aotearoa. We are indirectly eating this poison. The EPA (Environment Protection Agency) 2015/16 Survey showed nearly half of the wheat tested for glyphosate residue, 26 out of 60 samples, contained glyphosate! Many doctors now agree that there is a strong correlation between glyphosate use and the exponential rise in health complications and diseases such as: Autism, Alzheimer's disease, ADHD, Anencephaly (birth defect), Birth defects, Brain cancer, Celiac disease and gluten intolerance, Depression and Diabetes to name a few!
There is now a lot of peer reviewed scientific literature examining the detrimental health effects of glyphosate consumption. A Pioneer in this field is Dr. Stefanie Seneff, you can find a lot of interviews with her online, this one is a must watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6j0wIhUr1M and prompted motivation to start this campaign.
