Five years have passed since the European Parliament passed a resolution requesting the European Commission to introduce a general ban on the use of cyanide mining technologies in the European Union. In the 2010 resolution, initiated by Members of the European Parliament János Áder and László Tőkés, the EP requested the European Commission to initiate a complete ban before the end of 2011, as this is the only safe way to protect our water resources and ecosystems against cyanide pollution from mining activities. However the European Commission has not yet addressed the resolution's requests.
