In an Open Letter signed by 65 Auckland citizens on 2nd June, 2016 we demand that Glyphosate use be immediately ceased on our roads and parks and that Auckland Councillors, Local Board Members, the Mayor of Auckland and all prospective Council and Mayoral candidates standing in the 2016 election respond to this letter stating their ethical and political positions regarding chemical vegetation control so that this may be a matter of public record.
We have presented dozens of petitions, made thousands of submissions, worked hard with local councils to make our concerns heard – and we remain cut off from decision-making.Democratic process has failed us at the greatest cost; our health. So, if these demands are not met, we the undersigned reserve the right to defend our city, our people and our environment with all non-violent means necessary to stop the use of glyphosate on our streets and parks.
This letter is open to everyone to sign. Add your voice:
