A,

Amnesia, vertigo, stuttering, seizures, recurring comas. This is the living hell Monsanto’s toxic chemicals have caused Paul Francois.

The father of two used Monsanto’s weedkillers every day in his work as a farmer.

Monsanto said they were safe. But they weren’t.

Paul won a landmark case against the chemical giant. But Monsanto’s launched appeal after appeal and in 2 days Paul will be facing down Monsanto one last time.

But Paul isn’t fighting this battle just for him and his family. He’s also fighting for the countless others suffering at the hands of Monsanto.

So he’s asking for your help. With your donation, Paul can help pay legal fees for the others who like him are desperate for justice against Monsanto. Please A can you help?

Following in his father’s footsteps, Paul is passionate about his work as a cereal farmer.

When he developed health problems, doctors recognised that Monsanto’s Lasso weedkiller had caused them. So in 2007 Paul bravely decided to take legal action against the chemical giant.

Since then, Paul has achieved a landmark victory in the French high court and started an organisation to help others whose lives have been poisoned by chemicals. But of course, the chemical industry hated this -- and the pesticide giants have thrown back all they can. Paul’s court victory was sadly overturned in 2015.

This week is Paul’s final chance for justice and - whatever the outcome - the next steps will be crucial. We’ve heard direct in a secret meeting with a former Monsanto lobbyist that the company’s biggest fear is to lose credibility with the farmers and workers who use its products.

Success for Paul this week could tip the balance, and mean that other farmers who have been made ill by these chemicals come forward.

Please, can you chip in so that Paul and his organisation are ready to keep fighting Monsanto?

This isn’t the first time members like you have helped take on chemical giants. Remember when thousands of SumOfUs members like you chipped in to stop sulfoxaflor? You helped win an historic lawsuit against Dow and get its bee-killing pesticides license blocked in France.

After his lawyers called on SumOfUs members for support, thousands of you chipped in to help Dewayne Lee Johnson, the father of three taking on Monsanto in the US. At the end of last year, we wired $28,000 to him and his family to help them continue this world-changing fight.

Now, we need to help Paul and others like him too -- by chipping in to take on the chemical giants in France. So are you in, A?
