Where Are The Prayers For Us?

Where Are The Prayers For Us?

Prayers for staff stress relief

"The Government has started daily Maori prayer sessions to help stressed-out parliamentary workers cope with their jobs."

Where are the daily prayers for stress relief for those in the Painted Apple Moth aerial spray zone?

Where are the prayers for the thousands of people being aerially sprayed every 3 weeks, totally ignored by the media and those in Parliament.

What about the stress of those whose lives have been on hold for the last two weeks waiting for the latest spray round to take place? Those stuck in motels unable to continue with their lives, unable to return home, waiting.

Where are the prayers for them?

Where are the prayers for the children whose health, lives and education have been ruined by nearly two years of aerial spraying - two years they'll never get back.

Where are the prayers for the victims of those in Parliament whose policies put forests before people? Those whose health and lives have been devastated by aerial spraying.

Where are the prayers for them?

No moths have been found for 6 months yet MAF intends to continue aerial spraying over Auckland for the next two years.
