The birds, the bees and the Dutch
To Members of Parliament:
Bees are essential to our food chain and to nature. The use of Neonicotinoid pesticides is linked with the death of bees and other pollinators, and with declining bird populations. As concerned citizens, we call on you to vote for the Government to ban these toxic chemicals in the Netherlands.

Pesticides called Neonicotinoids have been strongly linked to the collapse of bee colonies, and also to the declining numbers of wild birds in our countryside. In a non-binding vote, the majority of MPs favoured banning these toxic chemicals. Now they have a chance to vote on a law with teeth, but companies are lobbying hard to keep the toxins flowing.
The next step to safeguard our bees is a big debate next week in Parliament. When 20,000 of us sign, a key MP has promised to take our petition straight to the heart of government! Click on the right to protect the birds and the bees in Holland, then share with everyone.
