    Between 500 and 1000 people were supporting him in front of Rennes tribunal this morning. Hope he will win his battle. The decision will be taken next week. I think it makes sence prohibiting the use of pesticide at a distance of less than 150 metres from any building for residential or professional use. A pity common sence have to finish up in front of a court.

    You would think it was common sense wouldn’t you Babeth? It makes perfect sense to me!

    Let’s have fingers crossed, it could be a precedent and some others could surf on the wave.

    The alarming thing i’ve seen over the decades is the blatant misuse of some farmers with chemicals close to water courses and elsewhere. There are limits to respect but some farmers throw caution to the wind, literally.

    They found a solution, water points have been erased from prefectoral maps so as not to have to protect them from pesticides :cry:
