The petition text:Dear Owen Paterson, Environment Secretary
It's time to take action to protect our dying bees!
Immediately halt the use of Nerve-agent pesticides (neonicotinoids) which are being blamed around the world for the sharp decline in bee numbers.
Take measures to reduce the use of all pesticides on bee pollinated crops.
Our bees are in danger, three species of bees are already extinct and others are in rapid decline.
Strong evidence points to particular pesticides being to blame for killing them. But the environment minister recently refused to support a European vote to stop the pesticides being used.
Now we’ve got just a few days to change the minister’s mind before he votes again. Let’s show him that it’s time our government stood up to the powerful pesticide industry and took action to protect our bees.
