WE PUBLISH A HISTORY OF CHEMICAL HERBICIDE USE IN AUCKLAND TODAY, 27 July 2017 . . .

A shocking history that many, many people know nothing about.

A history that lays bare the motives, actions and inactions of successive cities and councils and their so-called Council Controlled Organisations like Auckland Transport.

Truly, a narrative of the good, the bad and the ugly in one volume.  READ MORE
