I’m writing quickly to let you know some breaking news: WE WON! The EU neonics ban just passed.
A majority of European governments voted in favour of the European Commission’s proposal.
This is a massive win for the bees — and you and SumOfUs members around the world have helped make this happen. Thank you so much for your incredible support!
I’ll be in touch in the coming days with a more detailed report back.
In the meantime, let’s celebrate!
Wiebke and rest of the SumOfUs team
P.S. It’s only thanks to SumOfUs members like you that we won this amazing and historic bee-saving ban. But the battle to save the bees is far from over. Bayer and co will not give up now and neither can we. To keep the bees safe from pesticide giants we need sustained support from members like you — it’s the most powerful form of support. Please can you set up a small monthly donation today so that we can keep fighting for and saving the bees.
