Petition to Governor Jerry Brown

Governor Brown: Ban Glyphosate in California!

Did you know that one of the most widely-used herbicides in history, sprayed on our food crops, streets, playgrounds, and parks, has been proven to cause serious harm to our health? I’m concerned about my children’s health and safety, and Monsanto’s Glyphosate  weed killer (Roundup) is putting all of ours at risk. Join our campaign asking Governor Jerry Brown to ban the use of Glyphosate in California. In fact, Glyphosate is considered a carcinogenic by the WHO and even the California State Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment. Glyphosate herbicides have also been found to be linked to various cancers specifically lymphoma, are endocrine disruptors, neurotoxic, and a cause of liver disease. Yet this dangerous chemical is so pervasive that glyphosate is now found in our children's urine, mother's milk, our bloodstreams, and our food, beverages, water and more. There is a global movement taking place to ban this toxic chemical, and we’re asking California to lead the way for the U.S.  Other countries have begun to take action to protect their health, and the health of their children. Sri Lanka, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman and El Salvador have banned glyphosate. France is phasing out the use of glyphosate herbicides in agriculture over the next 5 years completely. In Europe, after 1 million Europeans requested a ban, 72% of the Members of the European Parliament voted to ban glyphosate and EU Member states have refused to renew the license. Sign my petition asking Governor Brown to ban glyphosate in our great state! To further support a glyphosate ban in California contact zen@momsacrossamerica.org

Petition to The Honorable John Carney

Ban the use of all glyphosate based herbicides

Governor Carney Ban Glyphosate in Delaware! Glyphosate herbicides or Monsanto's RoundUp weed killer, the most widely used herbicide in history, has recently been proven to cause serious harm to life. Glyphosate has contaminated our planet, and is now found in our children's urine, mother's milk, our bloodstreams, and our food and water. In 2015 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization found that glyphosate “is a probable human carcinogen”.In July of 2017 the California State Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) added glyphosate to its prop 65 list of known carcinogens.In October of 2017, after over 1 million Europeans requested a ban, 72% of the Members of the European Parliament voted to BAN glyphosate and EU Member states have refused to renew the license.Sri Lanka and the Six Gulf States (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman) and Malta have banned glyphosate. Many others are in the process of doing so. France has banned glyphosate in public parks immediately and will phase out the use of glyphosate herbicides in agriculture and landscaping use over the next 5 years completely. We ask our great state of Delaware to protect our citizens as well. Glyphosate herbicides have also been found to be linked to various cancers specifically lymphoma, are endocrine disruptors, neurotoxic, and a cause of liver disease. Global studies show that we are routinely exposed to dangerous levels of glyphosate. Millions of citizens in Delaware come in contact with glyphosate daily. The American Academy of Pediatrics has stated that our children are the most vulnerable to pesticides, we need to take action to protect the future of our state.  Over 1000 Americans are currently suing Monsanto, the manufacturer of glyphosate herbicides, for non Hodgkin Lymphoma. The Justice Department is investigating Monsanto for corruption, coverups, and collusion with the EPA in relation to the carcinogenic effects of glyphosate. Please join the Moms Across America, Organic Consumers Association, Institute for Responsible Technology, Thinking Moms Revolution, and thousands of others in ridding our state of glyphosate by signing the petition below: From Kelly A.

Protect Our Kids. Let's Make Portsmouth Non Toxic!

 We call on the City of Portsmouth to stop using dangerous toxins to maintain our public sidewalks, parks, historic cemeteries and other green spaces, and switch to proven organic grounds maintenance practices instead.  For years and without public warning, the city has been spraying public spaces with glyphosate (Roundup), bifenthrin, dithiopyr, and numerous other synthetic toxins just to kill a few weeds and bugs. But countless scientific studies link exposure to these chemicals with cancer, thyroid disorders, lower IQ, ADHD, metabolic changes, and many other maladies especially in young children. Entire countries and a growing list of cities worldwide from Paris to Marblehead, MA are restricting or outlawing these chemicals and steam-cleaning sidewalks, burning weeds and using safe alternative methods for grounds maintenance. In Portsmouth, the School Department has not used toxins for seven years and Prescott Park has not used toxins ever for over fifty years. We request that the city stop using toxins in public places, that it encourage toxin-free property maintenance for all new developments, and to educate property-owners in safe, organic property maintenance. Let the city administration, Mayor, and City Council know that you want Portsmouth to be a non toxic community! Please sign the petition and add your two cents as well. Let your voice for change be heard. To volunteer in our effort for a Non Toxic Portsmouth, contact us at nontoxicportsmouth@gmail.com   Thank you!  For more detailed information: http://www.seacoastonline.com/news/20170820/non-toxic-weed-killers-save-taxpayer-money-protect-health http://www.seacoastonline.com/news/20170813/city-risks-our-health-to-kill-weeds  http://www.seacoastonline.com/news/20170719/city-trades-one-carcinogen-for-another-that-may-be-worse  http://www.seacoastonline.com/news/20170521/why-is-portsmouth-endangering-citizens-health  http://www.seacoastonline.com/news/20170521/why-is-portsmouth-endangering-citizens-health  http://www.seacoastonline.com/news/20160601/urge-city-to-ban-use-of-roundup-herbicide
