A Fact a Day about aerial spraying is circulated to international & national media, national & local politicians and tangata whenua.

The Weeks Digest: 10th February -

* 200,000 Aucklanders are being repeatedly sprayed from the air by government authority with the pesticide Foray48B.

* The New Zealand government refuses to disclose the chemical composition of the spray.

* The government claims that 5% of people sprayed with Foray48B suffer adverse health effects. 5% of 200,000 people equals 10,000 men, women, children and an unknown number of unborn.

* The government have not reassessed the human health risks from aerial spraying with Foray48B since the original spray area was increased from 600 hectares of uninhabited riparian margin to 10,500 hectares of densely populated urban Auckland.
