Sign the petition to ban bee pesticides

On Monday 29th April, the EU vote again about whether to ban the three pesticides most linked to the bee decline. At the first vote in March, the UK abstained but on Monday, Owen Paterson, the Environment minister, is planning to vote against the ban.

Changing his mind won’t be easy - people power will be pitted against furious lobbying from big pesticide companies who put their profits first.

Sign the petition on the 38 degrees website.

On Friday 26th April, 38 Degrees teamed up with a whole host of other organisations to march on parliament and stage a March of the Beekeepers.
