“ROUNDUP DAY” – 6TH SEPTEMBER 2017

By on June 2, 2017

MAKE ROUNDUP HISTORY

 

PLEASE COME AND PARTICIPATE IN A DAY OF ACTION AGAINST THE HIGHLY TOXIC/POISON ‘ROUNDUP’ SPRAYED UP TO 5 TIMES A YEAR ON OUR AGRICULTURAL CROPS, ON OUR PAVEMENTS AND IN OUR PARKS – DATE OF ACTION – 6th SEPTEMBER 2017

Take 1 hour of your day between 1 – 2 pm to visit any outlet, supermarket, farm shop etc which is selling Roundup! Even the somewhat biased World Health Organisation has recently described Roundup as a ‘Probable Carcinogen’.

2 highly respected bodies in the US – the USDA (the US Department for Agriculture) boosted up by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) have recently produced a series of graphs (examples given below) which show how the major illnesses plaguing our lives spiked exponentially EVERY year since GENETICALLY MODIFIED (GM) food was given the green light to plant in the US and CANADA IN 1996.

In the same way as fossil fuels like coal, oil and fracking are BAD for us and the environment, GM Roundup ready sprays are destroying people’s lives and our precious planet.

I believe it’s time to give our children the message it’s not ‘hip’ to go to McDonalds but it is hip to buy organic, chemical free food and visit cates/eateries who specialise in such food. The benefits will soon show through with fat falling away and our sporting abilities will soar – along with our sex lives.

It truly is time to Roundup the Roundup once and for all and pull those pesky weeds by hand/pour boiling water on them, use mixes of vinegar, salt, citronella and ? … to be disclosed, and get out the message on this poster to everyone you know.

We’ve just received a bit of gold dust in the form of a letter (28.5.17) sent to Jean Claude Juncker – President of the European Commission. It was sent and signed by all bonifide environmental groups such as the EU Commissioner for Food Safety and Health – Vytenis Andriukaitis, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and many more, to the major decision makers in the EU.  The response of EFSA (The European Food ‘Safety’ Agency) and ECHA (The European Chemical Agency) “… concluded that the evidence does not support a classification (of poisonous to the public) for glyphosate”.

A couple of years ago the corporate controlled WHO (World ‘Health’ Organisation) stated Roundup was a ‘possible carcinogen’…Now with ever more horrific cancers and illnesses across the world they had to go ONE (crucial) step further and now re-classified Roundup as ‘Probably Carcinogenic’ – this coming from those who stand to profit ENORMOUSLY by keeping Roundup/Glyphosate on the shelves and you can ‘modify’ (excuse the pun) the word ‘Probably’ to ‘Definitely’.

To me this whole tragic saga is in no way better summed up than when I got the recently deceased ex-Environment Minister (for 6 years) – Michael Meacher MP to ask “if GM food is sold in the restaurants and bars in this House?”. The reply came back ….” The decision to ‘avoid’ GM products has been enforced as a matter of customer choice, based on our understanding of the wider public view…” ie; it’s ok to poison all of us (some farmers spray Roundup on the crop just 2 days before harvest – to increase yield) but not themselves.

What’s the alternative ….? Get people back to working the land.  Our Permaculture garden give us 2-3 times more food per acre than Monoculture farming where no sprays mean more beneficial insects meaning NO pest problems. Check website www.tapeleysustainability.org and others for more info. Please give time and place of your demo, – send photos and ‘stories’ of your ‘Event’ to Gerald Miles: – gm@caerhys.co.uk (Wales) and Hector Christie hector15@btinternet.com (Devon).

Please also contact local newspapers, TV etc.

History is full of examples of Big Business holding on to toxic, deadly chemicals for decades causing millions to die unnecessarily in a long, painful drawn out death simply just to further the massive coffers of the faceless few … tobacco, PCB’s and Roundup being the tip of a very ‘dark’ iceberg.

 

THE ACTION …. With as many people as you can muster go to (any) store selling Roundup, fill up your trolley with aforesaid toxin and go to the checkout/customer service and ask to see the manager.  Ask him/her why they are selling the public a product that kills them and demand the product be removed from shelves for good!

 

Info sheets will be provided to organisers to help explain to customers about the consequences of Roundup on their environment, children and dogs (who walk barefoot on the dead, brown grass, which then translocates via their paws directly into the blood stream).

Hello. My name is Hector Christie and this is my blog about sustainability and our future.

I'm like most people, only too aware of the uncertain times we are living in and the urgent need for action, to stop the pollution of our beautiful planet.
