Hi everyone, in case you missed it, earlier this year, Hackney banned the use of Glyphosphate on their estates and public spaces.https://www.eastlondonlines.co.uk/2020/12/hackney-eliminates-glyphosate-based-weed-killer-in-green-public-spaces/
Unfortunately Haringey is still using it across its parks (including Finsbury and Stationers) as well as all other council run property, such as HfH residences - of which we have a number in Stroud Green. I've personally had it sprayed on some plants I had recently planted!
Although the case is still out on its toxicity, it's pretty widely thought that the chemical (also known as roundup) has ecological and health repercussions (I'll leave you to read up!).
Just leaving this here as a reminder for any activism you want to go and do with the council, as well as inform your voting next year.
