Hours to close the bee-killing loophole!
EU Health Commissioner Vytenis Andriukaitis, the European Commission and the EU Parliament:
We urgently call on you to protect the bees by cracking down on the abuse of neonicotinoid 'emergency authorizations' that EU member states are granting without sufficient documentation of emergency insect attacks. We urge you to bring in stricter rules and ensure that chemical companies that profit from these authorisations have no say in the process.

The European Commission has the power to fix this and protect the ban they championed. But the story is hardly making the news and unless we expose this scandal, the ban-cheaters will get away with it.
In hours, the Commission and EU member states are meeting to discuss our bees. Let’s show them citizens stand behind a real ban -- then deliver our voices through the media and to the EU Health Commissioner who considers himself a bee champion. Sign now and share widely.
