BRUSSELS, June 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
On Monday 6 June, European citizens will show the EU standing committee exactly how they feel about the toxic chemical glyphosate.
Supporters of WeMove.EU, the movement for a better Europe, will join others in protesting the renewal of glyphosate's licence. If the standing committee approves the licence, it would mean the continued spread of the probably carcinogenic chemical into our everyday environment.
The group will show the European Commission what their decision will mean for Europe: burnt grass, brown leaves, dead animals, sick people. Each and every decision maker who walks into the meeting will have to vote having seen for themselves the death and destruction they could cause. We will also be delivering a petition with more than 262,000 signatures calling for an outright ban on the chemical. It is sure to be a disruptive and compelling sight!
The creative protest will demonstrate the widespread support in European countries for an all-out ban on the chemical, and the anger they feel about companies manipulating 'scientific' studies (and even EU officials).
WeMove.EU is a citizens' movement, campaigning for a better Europe; for a European Union committed to social and economic justice, environmental sustainability and citizen-led democracy. As of June 2016 we have 309,000 members across Europe. Our campaigns are run in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian and Polish.
