Bayer is VERY happy

A,

Right now we have an opportunity to win a historic ban on toxic glyphosate in Austria -- a key stepping stone to a ban across the EU and beyond.

We've got a plan to run a hard-hitting ad in Austria's leading newspaper to counter Monsanto's incessant pressure on decision makers, but it will only work with your support today.

BREAKING: The European Commission just called Austria's glyphosate ban "illegal". We’ve got one last chance to get this toxic poison banned -- but first we have to convince Austria's government.

Can you chip in CA$92 for an ad in Austria's most influential newspaper?

A,

The European Commission just dropped a bombshell: it said Austria’s ban of glyphosate would be “illegal”.

Austria was *so close* to banning glyphosate -- until Bayer-Monsanto got wind of the plan. And then Bayer's army of lobbyists got to work.

We’ve found a legal loophole that would still allow Austria to ban glyphosate -- but we’ve got to be quick.

The Austrian government is under immense pressure from Monsanto -- they will only act if we drown out the voices from the lobbyists.

That’s why we’re planning to place an ad in Austria’s most influential newspaper next week to publish our new poll that shows that 84% of Austrians are sick of glyphosate and support a ban this year.

Luxembourg banned glyphosate this year, and offers financial support to help farmers make the switch to safer, environmentally friendly agriculture. So there’s a way for Austria to still go glyphosate-free in 2020, if only there’s the political will.

Bayer-Monsanto's favourite pesticide, glyphosate, was almost completely banned in Austria last year. Thousands of SumOfUs members like you helped make that happen, despite Monsanto’s suffocating influence in politics.

Every political party -- except the chancellor’s conservative ÖVP -- supports a ban. We CAN win this. But to make sure the chancellor doesn’t quietly quit banning glyphosate, we need to make his choice visible to as many Austrians as possible.

Next month people living in Vienna will go to the polls for the capital’s municipal and district elections. I can’t imagine ÖVP candidates will want to explain why Luxembourg can go glyphosate-free, but the Austrian government supposedly can’t.

From Austria to California, you’ve led the charge to stop toxic glyphosate. You’re wiping it out of our fields, grocery stores, and off our plates.

SumOfUs members like you funded professional polling we commissioned earlier this year, that shows 4 out of 5 Austrians want glyphosate banned this year. Let’s remind Austria’s chancellor of that fact, and that if Luxembourg can ban glyphosate, then so can he.
