Pesticide reduction under threat. You can take action now!
We need your help to Save Bees and Farmers
Over 1 million European citizens demand an end to pesticides in the 'Save Bees and Farmers' initiative. Pesticide use needs to go down drastically to stop biodiversity decline.
Two proposals for new EU laws - the pesticide reduction law SUR and the Nature Restoration Law - are heavily under attack by conservative parties and industry.

CEO exposed the pesticide industry's lobby tactics to delay and derail the pesticide reduction law SUR in its report 'A Loud Lobby for a Silent Spring'. A key lobby tactic was to demand more 'impact data' from the European Commission, under the pretext of food security and the Ukraine war. Conservative and other right-wing parties, as well as big farm lobbies joined industry in this campaign. Now, conservatives are in election mode, which means that 'anything goes', including promoting fake news and denying scientific evidence of biodiversity decline.
Earlier this spring a fact check was published by NGOs, debunking some of the conservatives' arguments.
