Help us keep the community and environment safe from glyphosate-based weedkillers.

 

 

Glyphosate petition in conjunction with Non-Toxic Neighbourhoods Aotearoa

We ask that the New Zealand Government:

1) Ban the use of glyphosate in public places and around waterways,

2) Ban foliar sprays (pre-harvest) of glyphosate formulations on human and animal feed crops, and,

3) Conduct a first ever risk assessment of the active ingredient glyphosate, and the retail formulation sold in shops, using independent published and openly available scientific data.

We want stronger regulation

This is about the health of our environment and all of us who live in it.

Glyphosate-based weedkillers are used too often, and in too many places they shouldn’t be. This can make people ill and will damage our soils and precious wildlife.

We think glyphosate should be a tool of last resort rather than the first thing we turn to.

World-wide, glyphosate is being phased out and New Zealand is falling behind on this.

We want the government to step in.

Help us do more

This campaign relies on people to spread the word and to get involved.

Find out about more ways to help on our glyphosate campaign page.

Scientific work has revealed glyphosate as more toxic than was previously thought.

Massive settlements are now under way in the USA with billions of dollars being paid to plaintiffs who say exposure to glyphosate-based herbicides caused their cancers. Much of the evidence used in the court trials came from independent scientific research, not paid for by the pesticide industry.

But government regulators have habitually asked the pesticide industry to supply the data for risk assessment, despite ongoing criticism from scientists. This is why, for years, government regulators have said glyphosate use is safe. We think this is unfairly biased in favour of the pesticides industry.

As with the European Commission, the New Zealand Government can take a precautionary approach. Firstly, immediately ban glyphosate in public areas to ensure the public are not exposed, and our freshwater ecosystems are protected. Secondly, our Government can take a precautionary approach to ensure that independent published and openly available scientific data are prioritised during risk assessment. That risk assessment mustn’t be biased in favour of the pesticide industry.
