A few days ago we found out the fantastic news that Owen Paterson has been dismissed from his role as Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (since September 2012). This campaign is far from over.
‘Owen Paterson wasn’t a friend of the bees – in fact he put them in huge danger by backing bee-killing pesticides. But if Liz Truss knows that the British public want her to do everything she can to protect bees, she could plough a different furrow.
Our bees don’t have a voice, but that’s where 38 Degrees members come in. Together we have helped fight for their survival. Just a few weeks ago we helped stop a controversial application to allow bee-killer pesticides back on UK fields. And we’ve worked alongside campaigners from across Europe to get these killer pesticides banned.  If bees go – so do we. Can you sign the card to Liz Truss now? The more people who sign, the more impact it will have. Imagine receiving a card signed by thousands of people!
