This is disgusting. It’s just been revealed that Monsanto is behind the so-called “grassroots” lobbying campaign to defend glyphosate, its killer herbicide.
We’re getting closer than ever to banning glyphosate for good -- and Monsanto and its new parent company Bayer know that. They’re so desperate that they’re resorting to Big Tobacco-style tactics to convince us we want their poison sprayed all over our towns. Time to strike back and show them what grassroots really looks like.
In conjunction with grassroots partners like Pesticide Action Network Europe, we’re cultivating a campaign to get individual city and town governments in Europe to go glyphosate-free. Monsanto and Bayer already deflected a potential European ban last year -- but if we get enough towns on board, it could finally spell the end for their toxic weedkiller.
It’s a huge effort involving parallel campaigns targeting towns and cities all across the continent. But it would only take a small donation from you to help get the ball rolling.
Will you chip in to help get toxic glyphosate out of Europe?
