Today the pesticide industry sent four employees to ‘picket’ our office. We know that they were employees because when asked, they told us “We work at United Phosphorus Limited” a major producer of pesticides and added further “we have been sent here by our boss”. They brought with them posters and slogans. We offered them water, tea and chairs to sit on.
This is the latest in the long-standing fight of CSE regarding the poisoning of Padre village because of endosulphan pesticide. It must be recalled, what this case is about.
