  • Marvin Rees: deliver your promise to ban glyphosate in Bristol
    WE DID IT! Thanks to your support, Bristol City Council has agreed to our proposal for a Task Force to lead on the phase-out of glyphosate in our city. During the council debate, which was triggered by your petition signatures, Councillors voted unanimously in favour of a motion to stop using the controversial chemical in Bristol’s public spaces. The new Task Force will see the Council working with land managers across the city to plan a phase-out of glyphosate, and the transition to safer methods of weed control. We’ll be supporting the Council in this work, as well as keeping a close eye on the small print – so watch this space! Read the text of speeches, statements and the motion on our website: Watch the video here: (Watch from 30m for Bee The Change Project statement on how glyphosate impacts pollinators, and from 1hr11m for main petition debate) Spread the good news by sharing our Facebook posts: With thanks for your support, The Pesticide Safe Bristol Alliance team

  • Strip Donald Trump of his honorary degree
    UPDATE: We've won the campaign! Robert Gordon University have just announced that they are revoking Donald Trump's honorary degree. They say: "In 2010 Robert Gordon University awarded an honorary DBA to Mr Donald Trump, in recognition of his achievements as an entrepreneur and businessman. In the course of the current US election campaign, Mr Trump has made a number of statements that are wholly incompatible with the ethos and values of the university. The University has therefore decided to revoke its award of the honorary degree" Click here to email the university to say thank you:

  • Don't scrap the pensions dashboard
    Pensions dashboard The government committed to getting the pensions dashboard off the ground. It means we’ll be able to keep track of all our pensions in one place, stopping us losing out on thousands of pounds. When news came out that the government was considering scrapping the dashboard, over 200,000 of us jumped into action. We signed open letters, emailed our MPs and our research, which proved how much people could lose without a pensions dashboard, was plastered all over the press. The government saw our messages in their inboxes and in the media - and yesterday they acted.
