I don't think we necessarily want to email all 5500 signatories. Rather
we want one person per country to volunteer to do this. See below.
So far we have:
UK: Rufus Pollock
FR: Benjamin Henrion
If you are willing to take one country please mail the list and/or enter

I've already contacted the UK agency (DEFRA) and the basic response was:

This is something we should now follow up.
