France bans all neonics.   France became the first country in the world to completely ban neonics – going beyond temporary EU restrictions and doing what scientists and 550,000 people demanded.

This huge victory came right after a big win in the UK, where Ministers rejected an “emergency” application to ignore the EU neonics ban and use bee-killing seeds. Nearly 1,000,000 SumOfUs members spoke out against the industry-driven plan.
