Vote against bee-killing companies!

| Europe | 11/27/2013

Brief description
Syngenta, BASF and Bayer are giant multinational companies that produce and sell highly toxic pesticides. Their products are mass-killing bees and other pollinators.

Some of these pesticides have been banned in Europe since 2013. However, the companies have largely denied that their pesticide business has negative impacts on bees and ecosystems.

Today, you've got a great opportunity to help the bees: vote for the "beekillers"-case and make Syngenta, Bayer and BASF win the dreaded "Worst Prize" of the Public Eye Award.

The Public Eye Award is the most renowned anti-prize in the area of corporate accountability. Since 2000, The Public Eye Awards mark a critical counterpoint to the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos.

All the cases of irresponsible environmental sins and human rights violations that have been committed by the companies nominated by the independent jury are documented on the Public Eye Award website.

Syngenta, Bayer and BASF have been nominated by Bee Life European Beekeeping Coordination with the support of more than 50 organizations forming the ‘Alliance to Save the Bees and the Agriculture'.

Number of partecipants: 10.000

Organised by: European Beekeping Coordination
