Protect British bees

To Environment secretary George Eustice:

As citizens concerned about the fate of our pollinators we call on you to keep your promise for bee protection and urgently revert the emergency authorisation for sugar beet, and reject any other requests for such authorisations. British bees need more protection, not less.

Britain is breaking its promise of better bee protections by allowing a bee-killing poison banned in the EU to be used on our fields!

Just before the 2018 Europe-wide ban on neonicotinoids, Britain U-turned to become a leader on pollinator protection. Then-environment secretary Michael Gove even went on record saying the restrictions would be kept in place after leaving the EU. Now the government is opening the back door to pollinator poisons by allowing neonic use on sugar beet. And sugar lobbyists are celebrating!

But we can still stop this.

Avaaz members across the UK and beyond have come together in millions every time a new threat to our bees emerged -- let's quickly build a massive buzz for the bees and when we reach 100,000 voices we'll deliver them in massive ads to our government. Sign now & share widely!
