Glyphosate is on the brink of being reapproved in Europe. It could mean another DECADE of this cancer-linked, bee-killing pesticide being sprayed across our fields and parks.
But people-powered campaigns have triumphed against this poison in the past. And we can do it again – if our community comes together like never before.
Already Bayer-Monsanto has unleashed its army of lobbyists into Europe’s capitals, taking back-room meetings with officials and persuading them to trust their fake science and give them years more runaway profits.
If we all chip in, we can launch our own people’s lobbying push – hiring a full-time advocacy expert who can reach key decision-makers, debunk Bayer’s arguments and marshal civil society groups across Europe to ramp up the pressure in their home countries.
This could be the year glyphosate dies – but only if we fight like hell. Are you in?
