Please help share the crucial NC10 amendment for prohibiting use near residents' homes, schools etc.
Dec 12, 2018 —
Following my previous update on the crucial amendment that has been tabled to the Agriculture Bill by Caroline Lucas New Clause 10 (NC10) entitled “Application of pesticides: limitation on use to protect human health,” I have now tweeted the text for the NC10 amendment at: https://twitter.com/GeorginaDowns43/status/1072228699032965125
Anyone who is able retweet my tweet and share it on Facebook etc. that would be very much appreciated to help share it as far and wide as possible, as this prohibition of use amendment is crucially important for the protection of rural residents and communities, especially the most vulnerable groups such as babies, children, pregnant women, the elderly and those already ill and/or disabled and that should never have been exposed to cocktails of these poisons in the first place!
Ultimately, it is a complete paradigm shift that is needed to move away from the use of pesticides in farming/agriculture altogether. Such a move is absolutely integral to the health and existence of all those living in the British countryside, as well as other species that are being wiped out from the continued use of such toxic chemicals.
Many thanks for the support,
