State Officials Continue Aerial Spraying Against Pesky Medfly

May 16, 1990

We knew state officials were lying to us about malathion spraying, but announcing phony deadlines just to weaken opposition is truly outrageous. It worked, but it's time the people got serious about ending this threat to our health.

The courts and the politicians are too afraid, so we must take matters into our own hands and boycott California produce. My family has switched to Washington apples, Texas grapefruit, bananas, pineapple, and fruit not grown in California. California agribusiness has shown it doesn't care about the health of Southern Californians, farm workers, or anyone else, so let's return the favor. Boycott the poisoners.
