UPDATE 15 JUNE: More than one million Europeans have signed the European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) to ban glyphosate! We will submit all the signatures at the beginning of July. You can still add your name and spread the word!
The European Union is expected to decide soon whether to license glyphosate weedkiller for 15 more years, despite cancer-warnings from the UN’s International Agency for Research on Cancer. The agrochemical industry has its legion of lobbyists -- but one million ordinary Europeans could put Monsanto's favourite active ingredient out of action for good!
A coalition of grassroots groups, health- and environment experts across Europe are using an official petition for EU voters -- called a European Citizens Initiative (ECI) -- to fight back. A successful ECI guarantees us a right to a public hearing in the European Parliament, and compels the Commission to spell out what action it will take in response.
Sign the European Citizens Initiative calling for a ban on glyphosate, a trustworthy pesticide approval procedure, and EU-wide targets to cut pesticide use.
