Bayer world wide pettition


#1

Hi there!

I’ve just signed a petition to help save the bees.

Bayer is suing the European Commission to overturn a ban on the pesticides that are killing millions of bees around the world. A huge public push won this landmark ban – we can’t sit back and let Big Pesticide overturn it while the bees vanish.

Will you take a look and sign the petition too:


Thanks!
Mark

Hi Mark,
Is this an old petition? I cannot find anything recently published on this lawsuit; in fact, “on Nov. 9 the EU Parliament again failed to agree on whether to allow European farmers to spray glyphosate, the key active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller, for another five years. The chemical’s license expires on December 15 (though there’s an additional 18-month grace period).” from Organic Bytes, Organic Consumers Association.

It might be more effective to oppose this proposed merger: “in late 2016, Monsanto and Bayer announced a $66 billion merger. The Department of Justice is in the midst of reviewing it, and a decision is expected in late 2017. Should this merger go through, only four companies in the world will control all seed and agricultural chemical business: Bayer-Monsanto, Dow-DuPont, ChemChina-Syngenta, and BASF.”

You can sign petitions to oppose this solidification of power at Beyond Pesticides http://beyondpesticides.org/
or PAN http://www.panna.org/
