MEPs put nail in the coffin for sustainable EU pesticides regulation

Cheered on by the big agri industry lobbies, right-wing MEPs together with the far-right, managed to weaken the text in crucial areas. In the end, the text was not good enough for anyone to support it. Members of the European Parliament failed to protect human health and the health of our planet.

The EU forest monitoring law

Anna Deparnay-Grunenberg
Opinion by Anna Deparnay-Grunenberg
Our forests in Europe are vital for preserving wildlife and for fighting against climate change. But we lack knowledge about our forests, that would help us to restore and protect them. We need to know what we want to protect.
