A silent protest against 1080 will be happening in Stratford on September 8. Resident Lee Horton says the protest will be silent to represent the sound of the bush after a 1080-drop “because it kills all the birds”. She says 1080 a major issue as it also contaminates the water supply. She hoped people would join in the protest and make a stand against 1080.
