While we are in Sunnyvale at the Farmers Market, we will discuss the protest which will be occurring on Monday such as when and where.
VECTOR CONTROL sprayed our nearby San Jose/Campbell neighborhood with a toxic pesticide called
Zenivex on Thursday, May 22nd. For more detailed information internet search “Zenivex”. Vector Control just announced it will spray in Sunnyvale neighborhoods on Monday, June 2nd. Vector Control claims they need
to spay us to protect us from the alleged West Nile Virus. Statistics show that approximately 0.1% of those
persons infected suffer from any serious symptoms. This is insignificant. Pesticides suppress the immune
system, increasing the likelihood of contracting disease. Furthermore, pesticide fogging that is designed to
kill adult mosquitoes is known as adulticide. This method is the least effective and the most dangerous to
humans and non-target life forms. Pesticides are NOT safe. They are designed to be toxic and to kill. Many
are known carcinogens and endocrine disruptors that cause cancer, infertility, and a host of other illnesses.
From An Open Letter by Concerned Physicians and Scientists... “EXECUTIVE SUMMARY MASSIVE CHEMICAL
PESTICIDE SPRAYING AGAINST MOSQUITOES CARRYING WEST NILE VIRUS WILL HAVE MANY SERIOUS
DETRIMENTAL CONSEQUENCES, ESPECIALLY ON HUMAN HEALTH.”
"My organic garden is a Nationally Certified Wildlife Habitat. Last year and this year when the West
Nile Virus was sprayed I lost more tham 3/4ths of my bees and almost all my birds. This is true of other
bee-keepers. I feel like I live in a war zone."
– Kathryn San Jose, CA
"I have to leave my home when Vector Control
fogs their deadly poison due to liver and pancreas
damage from former workplace pesticide poisoning
causing me 23 years of disability. This need to leave
when and after the poisoning takes place is a
huge interruption in my life and very expensive."
– Cheriel, Saratoga, CA
"One of the last times Vector Control sprayed their
so-called safe pesticides I got really sick for days.
These pesticides are dangerous to humans and animals!"
– Brandi, Campbell, CA
