UK GOVERNMENT IS PERMITTING THE THE USE OF NEONICOTINOIDS, despite them being banned in Europe. These chemicals kill bees and other pollinators. A link to the PETITION/info is below. Please pass it on. Avaaz successfully stopped there use in Europe. Please help them stop there use in the UK.
The issue is now resolved. The petition was successful and Freedom of Panorama was saved. With thanks to all who participated.
– With links to the petition, UK MEP’s email addresses and tweeting tags. Please pass it around. :-).
