Stop killing our bees!
Protest by beekeepers and members of the public against DEFRA minister Owen Paterson’s opposition to a proposed EU ban on the use of neonicotinoid pesticides, which many leading scientists (including those on the House of Commons’ own Environmental Audit Committee) believe is killing bees in alarming numbers. The protest was organised by Avaaz, 38 Degrees and several other organisations, who have been campaigning on the issue for many months, with public petitions in support of a ban on neonicotinoids already reaching over 2.6 million (Avaaz) and 300,000 (38 Degrees) signatures. Parliament Square, Westminster, London, UK (26 April 2013).
