Amazing news for bees: The European commission is on the verge of banning three bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides -- almost completely.
This would be a huge victory. The proposed rule calls for a ban on the three most widely-used neonic pesticides that have been linked to bee colony collapse across Europe.
But the pesticide corporations are already fighting back, so we need to organize a massive campaign to make sure that the EU member states side with the bees.
We know the public supports protecting the bees, so to get the message across in a way they can’t possibly ignore, we’re sending hundreds of jars of honey to key agricultural ministers who haven’t yet announced support for the bees. Will you chip in?
