Join NCAP for a community fundraiser to protect community and environmental health! Circle of Poison is a documentary about the export of dangerous pesticides to impoverished areas. Companies are permitted to manufacture pesticides that have been banned in the US for export only. These toxic pesticides circulate the globe and come back to the US as residues on imported food.
$7-10 suggested donation; no one turned away for lack of funds. NCAP staff will be present to talk about our work to inspire ecologically sound alternatives to reduce pesticide use. Plus, we'll be giving away free pollinator seed packets!
Narrated by Elizabeth Kucinich and featuring interviews with President Jimmy Carter, Dr. Vandana Shiva, Professor Noam Chomsky, Senator Patrick Leahy, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the film exposes the shocking practice of corporate profit in the toxic pesticide trade. It takes viewers across the globe, to India, Mexico, Argentina, Bhutan, and the United States, to document the emotional stories of victims and the inspiring ways communities are fighting back.
