Friday Jan 11, Alternatives-Badael page in Al-Akhbar: The (excellent) main article "On pollution, cancer and corporate profits" by my dear friend and comrade Marcy Newman. My editorial: "Trade in poison" on how the Lebanese state has subcontracted agricultural extension to agribusinesses, whose interests lie in selling the largest possible quantity of pesticides to farmers. On the new pesticide law (stalled as many other laws) by Joanna Azar Organic farming in Lebanon: the alternative to pesticides by Rana Hayek. Food traditions: Kishik.
