Its all about endurance until these poisons are withdrawn from sale.

Did you know that SumOfUs members around the world chipped in to defend the strongest ban to date on bee-killing pesticides?
And it worked!
When Dow Chemical tried to undermine France’s historic ban on neonics — the class of pesticides known to pose a deadly risk for bees and other pollinators — our partner in France, Générations Futures, was ready to sue.
With the help of thousands of SumOfUs members chipping in to cover the legal costs, they stopped Dow Chemical in court.
Dow’s move: The chemical giant tried to get around the French ban by pushing for a new kind of neonicotinoid — Sulfoxaflor — not to be counted as a neonic so they can go on selling bee-killing pesticides.
But thanks to our partners and SumOfUs members like you, the authorization of Dow Chemical’s dangerous sulfoxaflor pesticides is now on ice.
We have proven yet again that together, we can hold even the biggest corporations to account.

99% of koala habitat can be bulldozed if it’s on private land in NSW under new land-clearing laws.
Now, read that line again.
99% of koala habitat can be bulldozed if it’s on private land in NSW under new land-clearing laws.
Are you outraged? I am. So I can imagine, like me, you’d want to do something about it. don, will you sign our urgent petition to call for habitat for koalas to be off limits to clearing?
This is out of control. Our Environment Minister signed off on new land-clearing laws that make it easier to bulldoze koala habitat. Even though she knew that 99% of koala habitat could face the axe.
This is yet another reason we’ve taken the NSW Government to court – to challenge some of the worst elements of its dangerous land-clearing laws.
