On Saturday 30th April 12pm (GMT), there will be a protest at St Peter’s Square to call on the UK government to enforce a total ban on the production and export of bee-killing pesticides.
For a second year, the UK government has legalised a pesticide which is toxic for bees + other pollinators. The use of toxic pesticides will only put pollinators and people at risk in the UK and further afield where these chemicals are exported to. It is time for the government to put communities and ecosystems before profit, and support farmers in a movement away from harmful agricultural practices.
Feel free to come along any time between 12-2pm in St Peter’s square – seed bomb making will be available for all! Spread the word!
