President Macron promised to ban glyphosate in France by 2020. It’s now 2021, and Bayer is still selling this poison across the country.
A ban in one of Europe’s biggest countries would have been a devastating blow to Bayer’s bottomline -- so it set its army of lobbyists on Macron.
Macron got scared, and is hoping you don’t notice as he delays this ban while the years roll by.
But if there’s anyone who won’t let him get away with this, it’s the SumOfUs community. And here’s the thing: the race for France’s regional elections has just begun, and Macron’s lousy track record on green issues is haemorrhaging support for his party.
If you chip in today, you’ll fund strategic polling in France to prove that ordinary people -- including those who voted for him -- back the glyphosate ban and get the results to key journalists in every region. But we have to act now to prove this will be a huge issue at the upcoming regional elections --
Can you chip in to get glyphosate banned in France?
