There is a petition on the Federal government’s website to ban or at least restrict the use of the herbicide glyphosate which is best known for being a key ingredient in the weed killer Roundup. The use of Roundup has also recently led to multi-million-dollar damages claims in the US for causing cancer and there are cases pending in Australia.
It is a petition everyone should sign because poisoning our plants isn’t making them healthier to eat and its’ also killing bees around the world which is a crisis waiting to happen if we don’t act as we need bees to pollinate crops. (Click here to see the petition on the government’s website)
The petition was started by cancer survivor Zara D’Cotta who publishes a website called Oh My Goodness which promotes healthy living. Zara originally set up a petition on Change.org and had almost 50,000 signatures but parliament considered it a non-conforming petition so a new petition is on the government’s website so it can be tendered to parliament but there is limited time to get as many signatures as possible as it expires on the 13th of November 2019.
In the below video Zara D’Cotta is outside a Bunnings store talking about the dangers of Roundup.
In the below video Zara D’Cotta talks about the petition and why you should sign it.
Under her video on YouTube Zara said the below :
I’m thrilled to be able to share with you that another e-petition to request to restrict the use of glyphosate in public spaces in Australia has been approved by the House of Representatives.
We have just 27 days to get as many signatures as possible before the petition closes on 13 November and I’m going to need your help.
Here is what you need to do:
1. Please go to https://www.aph.gov.au/petition_sign?… and sign the House of Reps petition
2. Check your email inbox straight after you sign and click on the confirmation link (check your spam folder if it isn’t in your inbox) – you must do this within 8 hours of signing the petition.
3. Please share these petitions far and wide, post in relevant Facebook Groups, reach out to like-minded businesses and community groups, and ask them to share via email and on their social channels.
This could be the most important 27 days in Australian history in terms of the use of glyphosate in Australia and I have every confidence that we as a collective, can change the course of history by following these simple steps.
There are 170 lawsuits waiting to happen against Monsanto in Australia – according to Carbone lawyers.
The tide is turning. If you know anyone whose health has been impacted by RoundUp that may be willing to travel to Canberra with me to meet with MPs and raise awareness about this issue in the media – please get in touch with me.

I wouldn’t write an article about a petition except for this: It is well known that Roundup is found in honey and Capilano Honey started their SLAPP lawsuit against me in 2016, in part at least, in an attempt to conceal it from the public. The SLAPP lawsuit continues with no end in sight.
I have first-hand experience of a large company, Capilano Honey, abusing the law in an attempt to hide the fact that there is poison in the food they are selling to the public. If Capilano Honey has to abuse the law to conceal it from the public then they are saying that even they believe it is a massive problem. So please sign the petition and help put pressure on the federal government to ban it or at least restrict its use.
