Ask your minister to Save Europe’s bees !

Belgium - 19 Apr 13

The European Commission has proposed a ban on the use of neonicotinoids for an initial 2 years period. During the first vote on this ban on last March 15, no majority decision was reached by the national ministers for agriculture from the different EU members states. Today ARC2020, Slow Food and the European Beekeeping Coordination launched a joint campaign calling on Europe’s Agricultural Ministers to back the ban on neonicotinoids proposed by the European Commission. With the final vote scheduled for the 29 April, we must act now! From today until 29 April 2013 contact your ministers to encourage them to save Europe’s bees. Please find your minister’s and ambassador’s contacts here. For more info please contact: Francesco Panella, spokesman for the European Beekeeping Coordination Tel: +32 10 47 16 34, info@bee-life.eu - www.bee-life.eu
