GLORICIDE was first experimented with formally back in approximately 2007, under the auspice of a trial. Under APVMA Research Permit 7250 (see info) the Council/s had a permit to experiment in an area of 10m2 Nationally, outside of a Research Station.
The initial trials were 18 plots at 10m x 10m, a total land use of 1800m2. That’s a lots more than the 10m2 they were legally allowed to experiment on, but pails in comparison to what was to follow.
SCRC claim in the Final Report into the GLORICIDE Control Trial that http://www.atpenvironmental.com.au/?attachment_id=136 they operate under a combination of Permits. Apparently Permits can be added together so that you can do whatever you want (Permit 7250) wherever you like (Permit 11463) and not subject to any extra conditions (Permit 10540) such as using on Fallow Ground Only or with established setbacks for products banned in and around Aquatic Areas.
If your the Local Council, you can basically do whatever you like and kill as many trees as you like and kill as many people as you like, destroy as many whistle-blowers’ as they like, buy the local media out, deliver deliberately misleading information to the Community, refuse to lawfully investigate anything, apparently, because the Government makes the rules and Administers the rules.
