EPA Refuses to Ban Dangerous Pesticide Chlorpyrifos Linked to Brain Damage in Children

Published on Jul 22, 2019
The Environmental Protection Agency will not ban the widely used pesticide chlorpyrifos—even though the agency’s own research shows that it can cause brain damage in children. The substance is sold under the commercial name Lorsban and is banned for household use. But it’s still used by farmers on more than 50 fruit, nuts, cereal and vegetable crops. The announcement came Thursday. The Obama administration said it would ban the use of the toxic chemical in 2015, but the rule never took effect. It was suspended in 2017 by then-EPA head Scott Pruitt. We go to Seattle to speak with Patti Goldman, a managing attorney at Earthjustice who represented health and labor advocates in a lawsuit against the EPA’s original decision in 2017.

“If Not Now, When Will We Stand?” Native Hawaiians Fight Construction of Telescope on Mauna Kea

Published on Jul 22, 2019
A historic indigenous resistance is unfolding on the Big Island of Hawaii, where thousands have descended on Mauna Kea, a sacred Native site, to defend it from the construction of a $1.4 billion telescope. Scientists say the Thirty Meter Telescope will help them peer into the deepest corners of space, but indigenous resisters say the construction was approved without their consent and will desecrate their sacred lands. Last week, police arrested 33 people—most of them Hawaiian elders—as they blocked a road to prevent work crews from reaching the site of the telescope being planned atop Mauna Kea. And on Sunday, demonstrators reported that more than 2,000 people had gathered at the access road to stop construction. We speak with Pua Case, an indigenous organizer and activist defending Hawaii’s Mauna Kea.

Indigenous activist on blocking Mauna Kea telescope: “If not now, when will we stand?”

Published on Jul 22, 2019
For ten years, activists and organizers have been fighting to block the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope atop the summit of the sacred mountain Mauna Kea. The proposed site for the 18-story telescope is the highest mountain in the world from the seafloor, a source of water for indigenous communities, and is known as one of Hawaii’s most spiritual mountains. The summit of the mountain is also part of Hawaiian ceded lands: land that is to be held in a public trust and is part of a conservation district. For six consecutive days, indigenous activists have been protesting on the land at the base of the mountain, rejecting new construction. On their sixth day of demonstrations, police arrested 33 community elders for blocking the main access road. Indigenous activist and organizer Pua Case spoke with Democracy Now! and described exactly what Mauna Kea means to the native Hawaiian community and how the construction of the latest telescope is “the one too many and the one too big.”
