Michael Parenti: STOP the Pesticide Spray of the Bay Area

Parenti weighs in on the Apple Moth eradication
What do Homeland Security and FEMA have to do with the California Department of Food and Agriculture’s plans to spray the San Francisco Bay Area with pesticides? Is this more dangerous to us and our rights than to the light brown apple moth? Parenti says that 50 other states have plans for similar  eradication programs – so this is NOT a local issue.
After this program was recorded the California Department of Food and Agriculture announced on June 19 that they would suspend the spraying of urban areas. They still plan to spray forested areas and use ground spraying of the controversial pesticide. Parenti says:” This is a tactical retreat to preserve the whole notion of the pesticide war against any bug and weed that they declared an invasive public enemy.
