On 8 March, a meeting of EU government experts in Brussels is expected to support the European Commission’s proposal to grant a new 15-year lease to glyphosate, the world’s most used weedkiller, despite World Health Organisation (WHO) cancer warnings.
Gardeners, agricultural and forestry workers have been obliged to use the compound under threat of losing their job.
EFFAT, representing almost seven million workers in agriculture in Europe demands:
· Alternatives to glyphosate
· Pesticide-free production methods
· Adequate protective equipment for workers handling glyphosate
Share EFFAT’s concern for agricultural workers. Help them keep their job and be safe.
Use social media to ask the European Commission to #stopglyphosate!
