There has been a LOT of talk on Benicia Nextdoor about the toxic health effects of using Roundup here in Benicia. (See Roundup is not Innocent Weed Killer and Silent Spring of East side Benicia.)
The Progressive Democrats of Benicia will offer a forum with local and regional speakers on the topic on June 11. See information below…
NEXT MEETING – JUNE 11, 2019 – “SILENT SPRING IN BENICIA?
June 11, Tues 7:00 pm
Dona Benicia room
“Silent Spring in Benicia?” Let’s talk about herbicides and pesticides.
We will have brief reports by a representative from the City of Benicia and a representative from Benicia Unified School District, and we hope to have someone from Solano County. Bring your concerns and questions!
Expert speakers will include:
- Kat Furey of the California Guild, Proposition 65 (CA Safe Water and Toxic Enforcement, 1986) – what we know about glyphosate, etc.
- Mackenzie Feldman, UC-Berkeley activist who worked to gain a UC system-wide ban on use of glyphosate herbicides – UC Global Initiative, Berkeley Food Institute, etc.
We will also hear from Sustainable Solano about alternatives to glyphosate products.
Hope to see you there!
