Father of three, Dewayne Johnson, made history this summer when a jury ruled that his terminal cancer was caused by the weedkiller glyphosate. But Monsanto, and its parent company Bayer, are refusing to accept responsibility.
The chemical giants are gearing up to appeal the decision, and continue to inflict misery on Mr Johnson and his family.
SumOfUs members like you have been at the forefront of the fightback against Bayer. This month, after his lawyers called on SumOfUs to help support Mr Johnson, thousands of SumOfUs members like you chipped in. Together, we’re helping give him the resources he and his family need to keep up his world-changing fight.
Bayer’s execs are terrified of the precedent this sets. They’re quaking at the thought of the thousands more potential cases, and the hundreds of billions of dollars in damages they might have to pay.
We need to keep this issue in the spotlight to bring the chemical giants to justice, but it’s going to be a long fight -- we need long-term support to make it happen, and we need to kick start it right now.
Can you chip in monthly to take on Bayer and Monsanto?
