Safe Land for Bees - Bristol event

I've just realised that, although I emailed YABeeP members a while ago, I have not posted information on the site about the Safe Land For Bees public event they are holding in Bristol on Sunday11th April. It takes place from 1 – 5 pm at Windmill Hill Community Centre, Vivian Street, Windmill Hill, Bristol, BS3.

This is their press release

Safe Land for Bees, a west country community group which includes some Bee-Keepers, will be hosting a Public event on Sunday 11th April 2010 at Windmill Hill Community centre, Vivian street, Bristol, BS3 4LW. The aim of the event is to provide information about the situation bees currently face at which Barrie Trower, Scientific Advisor to the Radiation Research Trust and to HESE, will present a new paper titled 'The true cost of damage to the environment (ecosystems) from the Telecommunications industry'

Safe Land for Bees group aims to create a network of land where bees can thrive. Our community event seeks to celebrate humanity's relationship to the bee and yet to recognize the serious trouble they are currently in and to encourage and explore how people can respond to that. In addition to Barrie's speech, we also welcome the
Global Bee Project, who will show slides of their educational work.

Throughout the day, there will be a 'Bee Bazaar' of stalls from local and regional organisations and individuals who share an interest in wildlife or are inspired by bees to create. Acoustic music will provide a warm atmosphere.

Bees are under threat. Colony Collapse Disorder and other diseases are leading to rapid declines in the number of both honey bees and wild bees. Many possible causes have been identified and well publicised: pesticides, industrialisation of bee-keeping, mono culture and the lack of wild areas in our countryside. However, there is now evidence to suggest that microwave radiation from mobile phones, masts, WIFI, TETRA etc. is also a major cause of harm to bees and all wild life.

"Within my capacity as a scientific adviser, I receive many research papers from all over the world and I believe what is happening to Bees is also happening to other living things" Barrie Trower

This event will be fun and family friendly where all are welcome; a day where people can learn more about the dangers of microwave radiation and how to become a true bee supporter in a way that advances the cause of bee health while being practical and meaningful to them.

We hope to see you there!
