Quick Reference

The term sometimes applied to the contemporary environmental justice movement, or development during the 1980s (notably in the United States) of thousands of community groups who developed a national co-ordinating infrastructure, in order to protest against inappropriate dumping of hazardous wastes, use of pesticides, and other environmentally damaging toxic substances. Opponents sometimes use the alternative epithet BANANA (build absolutely nothing anywhere near anything).
