A call for ALL of us to STOP TRASHING OUR PLANET = STOP!
A coalition of independent New Zealanders and groups working together for a beautiful and healthy planet in which to live, as free as possible of toxic chemicals, waste and other pollution.
We cannot continue to gamble with our children’s health and the future of all life on earth.
WHO’s MADE A STAND IN THE UPCOMING ELECTIONS !
Saturday 8th October 2016 ~ for Councils and District Health Boards
We have coverage 3 DHBs and 5 other positions covering 3 more DHBs so at least half the voting population will get a chance to make a difference ~ an opportunity to vote for something meaningful, honest and truly important ~ the health of our children and the future for all of us.
We say NO RATES FOR ROUNDUP / GLYPHOSATE or 1080 POISON or FLUORIDE or any other unnecessary toxic or polluting substance or practice including polystyrene, plastic bags and microbeads, fracking, toxic mining, genetic engineering and emf’s .
POVERTY, HOMELESSNESS, VIOLENCE & NEGLECT are social pollution and alleviating these things would be a better use of public money.
WHY USE A TOXIC OR POLLUTING PRODUCT OR PRACTICE IF YOU DON’T HAVE TO?
In the recent case of the farmer losing a $60K crop of linseed because it got sprayed with 3 chemicals rather then the 2 he ordered, everyone is ducking for cover and is very similar to those in Councils failing to take responsibility for the misery and suffering they are causing by using all sorts of toxic substances and practices.
Would we ever have been ‘civilised’ enough to stop slavery or give women the vote etc etc etc without people who were prepared to MAKE A STAND – so STOP hopes YOU will lend your support!
Maggie Barry has just proudly announced that more that $20M will be spent poisoning 720,000 hectares with 1080 – NZ Herald 23-7-2016 :
and on RadioNZ – Rat levels at 100% !a sanctuary in the Kahurangi maintains that the rat population is the highest ever at 100% – meaning every tracking pad shows rat prints – despite the 1080 drops in 2014.
Bill Wallace, founder of the Ban 1080 Party, pointed out at the last election that rat numbers increase after 1080 drops so no surprises there. The surprising thing is that it hasn’t yet dawned on DOC that their poisoning programme is bound to make the situation worse and do a lot of other damage in the process.
The contamination of the HAVELOCK NORTH water supply is a WAKE UP CALL for ALL of us and this video from Clyde Graf, Regional Councillor for Waikato highlights the danger 1080 poses for all of us.
NO RATES FOR ROUNDUP ~ MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO
In March 2015 the WHO classified glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen in their IARC monograph.
Read the scandal HERE how Monsanto has tried to buy a counter ruling!
“Women are exposed to hazardous chemicals not only differently than men, but also have a higher susceptibility to them”
~ and they are the first ‘environment’ that our children encounter!
Why do we need to act urgently now?
Our everyday exposure to hormone disrupting chemicals – in our food, cosmetics, electronic products, schools, hospitals and workplaces, to name a few, must stop in order to protect the health of current and future generations. Humans and wildlife are vulnerable to exposure to these chemicals every day, which are very likely to be contributing to the dramatic increases in many serious, life threatening diseases and health disorders.
In June 2015 the 100,000th chemical was registered – mostly without adequate investigation into their ‘safety’ when used alone – and none into the effects of the hundreds we are now exposed to in our daily lives – not additive nor accumulative let alone the synergistic effects where the presence of one can magnify the action of another making it even more toxic and harmful – such as fluoride increasing the uptake of lead – particularly in African-Americans and Hispanics.
On 1st July 2016 a group of health professionals and others issued a Consensus statement – Project TENDR – calling for reduction in the use of a number of chemicals linked to the neurological defects in children – but leaving out the sacred cows of fluoride and 1080 etc – and stated that these children cost twice as much to ‘educate’ and that for every dollar spent on guarding against lead exposure, for instance, their was a saving from $17US to $225US.

ARTIFICIAL FLUORIDATION OF PUBLIC WATER SUPPLIES ~ Fluoridation Information Network ~ F.I.N. ~ Because once you have ALL the information you’ll want an END to Fluoridation.
Formed in 1996 for the referenda on Auckland’s North Shore and now asking for an immediate cessation of artificial fluoridation of Auckland’s water supply in line with the latest referendum in the region in Onehunga where 66% voted against having their water contaminated with the highly toxic industrial waste from the phosphate fertiliser industry as shown here.

MORE PLASTIC THAN FISH IN THE OCEAN BY 2050?
Again in NZ Herald on 23-7-2016 there is a study underway to determine just how lethal plastic is proving to be to sea birds – Seabirds & Plastic
The Ocean Clean Up – Marine Debris – Waste Management World featured an interesting video on the OCEAN CLEANUP planned for the Pacific waste pool, which is very encouraging but makes the point that this is to try and scoop up as much as possible before they break into the microbeads that cannot be removed easily at all. So, although supermarkets are now offering recycling bins that are sent to Australia for reprocessing into other products, how much better to work on stopping unnecessary plastics altogether?
BAN POLYSTYRENE ~ San Francisco has – so can we.
GENETIC ENGINEERING- Keep NZ GE-FREE
GE-FREE New Zealand critiques the latest EPA report regarding glyphosate.
To consider just one ingredient — glyphosate — without also taking into account the synergistic effects of the adjuvants that make GBH such a powerful killer, constitutes a fundamental flaw in the EPA’s report,” said Claire Bleakley, president of GE-Free NZ:
in their Press Release of 16-08-2016
TOXIC MINING & INTENSIVE FARMING
HAVELOCK NORTH should be the wake up call for all of New Zealand!
We don’t need any more of our water supplies contaminated!
Just some of the issues we need to start addressing through our Councils and District Health Boards – so will you support STOP through to close of voting on 8th October 2016?
