"Pesticidi illegali on line"
Of the 350,000 tons of pesticides used on European fields every year, 48,300 tons are illegal. Just this year 1346 tons of illegal pesticides have been seized, that's enough to treat all the agricultural land in Germany! This article tells all.
The EU have voted TODAY 23rd October 2020 to decide Europe's agricultural subsidies for the next seven years. We will know soon whether they really intend to follow a green policy of biodiversity or give in to the monoculture corporate lobby. This is incredibly important for our lands. Thanks to Greta Thunberg for mobilising support from her instagram.
