Decision Day For Bees. Lets Hope The EU Is Better For Them Than They Are For Animals In Transport.

In our opinion, this result will show just how much the EU establishment actually listens to concerns and evidence of citizens, OR how much the big money corps pay to get their way.

On 28 February, the European Parliament is expected to vote on a decisive resolution calling on the European Commission to protect the bees that are so vital to Europe’s food security and ecological balance.

 

The outcome of this vote could determine the fate of bees in Europe.

 

The European Commission is considering a groundbreaking Europe-wide ban on bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides — but if the European Parliament takes a stand against it, then chances of the ban going forward are slim.

 

We have just 7 days left to convince European Parliamentarians to pass this crucial resolution and to increase the pressure, we’re launching a hard-hitting ad campaign in influential Brussels media outlets.

 

Together, SumOfUs members have been at the forefront of the global battle to protect bees. We helped push the French government to put in place the strongest ban on bee-killing pesticides to date, and we’ve continued to work together to defend it from major corporations like Dow Chemical. Our collective action has convinced major retailers to stop selling of neonics in places like the United States and Australia.

 

Now, we’re closer than ever to protecting bees in all EU countries — where around 84% of plant species and 76% of food production depends on pollination. With bee colonies in decline by more than 50% in some European member states, we have no time to lose.

 

The decision to ban dangerous pesticides in Europe is within our grasp. And, this resolution from European Parliamentarians could tip the scales.
