Monsanto’s latest day in court is coming up -- and it’s opposition is bigger than ever. 21 U.S.-based plaintiffs are coming together in a massive cancer lawsuit against Monsanto’s infamous herbicide, Roundup.

A motion was just filed to unite 21 separate federal cases against Monsanto. The details are nearly identical: all 21 individuals are suing the Big Agro bully, stating that exposure to glyphosate in Roundup led to the development of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

It’s been over a year since the World Health Organization classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic to humans”. Since then, incredible pressure has been mounting against the world’s most widely used herbicide. Now, we have an opportunity to come together to support the 21 plaintiffs taking Monsanto’s Roundup to the courts.

Voice your support of the brave 21 plaintiffs bringing their cancer lawsuits to Monsanto.

The plaintiffs hope their lawsuit will be seen in Illinois’ district court. The state is the U.S.’s largest producer of soybeans, a crop which is doused in 122 million pounds of glyphosate-based herbicides yearly. It’s only fitting that the epicenter of Roundup’s havoc play host this unprecedented lawsuit.  

The 21 plaintiffs are evidence of the life-threatening harms that glyphosate can cause. Take Linda Patterson, who says she was diagnosed with stage four non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2014 after over a decade of using Monsanto’s Roundup in her gardening and landscaping work.

Across the world, people are fed up with being subjected to dangerous glyphosate in their fields, gardens, and streets. And they’re taking action. Last month, Malta became the first EU member state to outright ban glyphosate. With every lawsuit, demonstration, and ban, we’re chipping away at Monsanto’s stronghold on our food systems. Will you show your support for these 21 plaintiffs taking on Monsanto?

Stand with the 21 plaintiffs bringing a united cancer lawsuit to Monsanto’s door.
