Bologna and Marisa
Valente have vowed to 'eat like bees' in protest against the use of
neonicotinoids. They say that they now have scientific proof that
pesticides are killing their bees, and they want the Italian
govenment to take action to ban neonicotinoids on all crops. At
present, their use is only banned on maize.
I spoke to Renato, whose English is a lot better than my Italian,
and you can hear the result in today's podcast.
PLEASE SUPPORT Renato and
Marisa by going to their web site and signing their petition
