Beekeepers vs Bayer

A,

I just want to make sure you saw this -- Bayer is trying to squash one of your biggest victories -- putting the bees at risk. It’s pouring money into overturning the ban on bee-killing pesticides in France. Beekeepers are fighting back in court, but they can’t cover the legal costs.

A, can you rush a small donation to help beekeepers protect our victory?

Bayer’s crafty lobbyists and lawyers have got beekeepers on the ropes.

Bayer smacked them down with a lawsuit to get rid of the French ban on bee-killing neonic pesticides.

Will you rush beekeepers a donation to help with spiraling legal costs?

A,

Bayer is desperately trying to kill one of your biggest ever victories, A: the historic ban on bee-killing neonic pesticides in France.

Bayer’s cashed-up lobbyists and lawyers are doing everything they can to get the ban overturned, so they can keep profiting from bee-killing chemicals.

Brave beekeepers have spent all summer protecting the bees from Bayer’s latest attack, and they’re exhausted and running out of money.

This could be the end of their fight -- but if members like you rush donations to their legal fund, beekeepers can show up in EU courts to defend your historic victory. Will you rush a donation to beekeepers to save the bees from Bayer?

When incredible SumOfUs members like you came together to fight for our bees, France became the first country in the world to ban all neonic pesticides.

We’re in a worldwide fight to save bees from toxic pesticides. These poisons have proven to be a leading cause of death of whole bee colonies. The latest research shows that bees exposed to these pesticides fly only a THIRD of the distance that unexposed bees can.

But when hundreds of thousands of SumOfUs members like you came together to demand bans on these pesticides, you won. Your victory in France is historic, and it's setting the stage for the rest of the world to join and save the bees everywhere.

But if Bayer gets away with overturning your victory in France, it’ll set us back all over the world.

Beekeepers are exhausted, but they’re ready to keep fighting with you, A. Will you rush a donation to get them to the EU courts to protect our victory?
