L Kirby started this petition to Torfaen County Borough Council

This matter affects ALL residents of Torfaen, if you use the road, pavements, parks, schools, in fact it will be happening right outside your door.

Torfaen Council have contracted Complete Weed Control (South & Central Wales) Ltd to spray all paths, internal and external, garage areas, islands and traffic areas with a Glyphosate product, brand name Asteroid Pro. 

Work began in Blaenavon on 28th April 2019 and will continue throughout the borough and is expected to take four weeks to complete. Have Torfaen council notified you of when this will be taking place in your area, to allow you to take necessary precautions? Have you agreed to have a probable carcinogen sprayed in your locality? (stated by the International Agency for Research in Cancer) Do you give your consent? 

Last year, Dewayne Johnson took on Monsanto (who produce glyphosate, round up, agent orange, DDT and PCBs as well as GMO seeds)  and was awarded $289 million after the jury came to the conclusion that Mr Johnson’s use of glyphosate at the grounds of a school, as part of his job, caused his Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. It’s the first time Monsanto have had to defend against an American jury. Corruption of officials, corruption of science and falsification of science were all seen happening in this case to escape the consequences of Monsanto and Roundup products causing the death of 1 in 5 people.

Listen to Robert F Kennedy Jr and Bret Wisner talk about the case: https://www.facebook.com/HighWireTalk/videos/462901444226095?s=595698061&v=e&sfns=mo

Sign this petition and or contact Torfaen Council directly calltorfaen@torfaen.gov.uk to speak out and say NO, you do not consent. Come on everyone, we all need to use our brains and stop this nonsense. 

Not only is the product potentially a direct threat to your health and that of your children, family and pets, it is toxic to aquatic life, earth worms and bees. Where is this poison going once it’s been sprayed on all hard surfaces? It will be washed away into the drainage system and join the water cycle, do you think this is right? Do you think these actions are wise? Do you think this is taking care of our planet, the place we live?

Other residents have raised concern in the past: https://www.freepressseries.co.uk/news/14810223.resident-raises-concerns-over-weedkiller-sprayed-around-his-estate/

“Several councils in Wales are now reviewing their use of the chemical despite it being approved for use until 2022 by the European Union.” But not Torfaen it seems! https://www.freepressseries.co.uk/news/17233457.caution-urged-over-future-use-of-controversial-weedkiller-in-torfaen/

Additionally do you wonder why we are always being told about declining Bee populations? It just so happens the use of glyphosate has been at its peak over the past five years! What does Torfaen Council have to say about this? On one hand they want a ‘belt of wildflowers’ running through the county to encourage bees and on the other they are spraying poison which kills them off!

It’s time to change things people. We all see and hear of atrocities which happen around the world, we all need to do our bit. I for one am not accepting this as the way it is, DO YOU?
