Rachel & Alan - organisers of march/rally.

"The community has been forced into marching as our health concerns have been ignored. The Labour Party is proving itself to be an arrogant, ignorant, & uncaring Government. Growing numbers of residents are suffering many ill effects due to this "so called safe" pesticide Btk foray 48B. Long term testing has never been completed anywhere in the world. We will not be guinea pigs. This is the health of N.Z's largest city, & approx. 1:10 of Aucklands population. It is time to use alternative methods to eradicate the Painted Apple Moth." Rachel, Jude & Alan - Sprayfree Coalition.
