Bee-killing pesticides are banned across Europe, but the UK government is about to allow a giant chemical company to use these poisons on nearly two hundred thousand hectares of British land.

Here are some tips what to say. Please remember to be polite:

I urge you reject Syngenta's application to use neonicotinoids in the UK.
Latest science shows conclusive link between these pesticides and harm to bees and other wildlife.
Millions of people across Europe backed the ban on neonicotinoids. Allowing them to be used would undermine the ban
As a UK citizen, I call on you to protect our bees, not Syngenta's profits, by rejecting their request to use these deadly chemicals.

(You can leave out the UK citizen part if it doesn't apply, it let me sign.)
