Rally Against Pesticides in Lane County

"Cide" means "to kill." Pesticides are poisons, and herbicides are one kind of pesticide used specifically to kill "weeds."

Gather at Eugene's Kesey Square (Broadway and Willamette) on Friday, May 30 at 12:00 to hear speakers from Pitchfork Rebellion and the Oregon Pesticide Action Working Group and see compelling maps compiled from decades of spray tracking by Forestland Dwellers and then continue by bike to Harlow Bridge over Coburg Road.
