AMAZING NEWS -- WE WON!! Europe just voted for a ban on bee-killing pesticides, after we built the largest petition in the world for bees, and thousands of us flooded ministries with messages. This is a major victory and opens the way to a new era of more sustainable farming. But we must keep the pressure up -- now we’re taking the fight to the US, Canada, and the rest of the world. Keep signing and sharing!
