BREAKING 27 April: Bayer just won the court battle to ban protest in the square outside its annual meeting -- the protest Ekō (formerly SumOfUs) members helped pay for.
Court documents show that Bayer referred to peaceful protest as a "terrorist threat". We want to help beekeepers appeal the decision -- could you make an emergency donation to help their legal fight and defend the bees? We don't have much time left.
Bayer's huge annual meeting is coming up in just a few weeks, and we're going to make sure beekeepers can be there.
With your help, beekeepers will have their voices heard -- finally -- after seeing mass bee die-offs for years. It's time Bayer's own shareholders heard their struggle and force change from within.
Thanks to you, we're on the cusp of winning some huge battles for the bees. The biggest battle will be to get Bayer to stop making the bee-killing neonics that are causing hive destruction and putting our food supply in jeopardy. Our best chance to do that is make sure Bayer's own shareholders know just how dangerous its products are to our survival.
Can you donate to bring beekeepers to speak to Bayer's shareholders?
