Here's my original email, with more information about the lawsuit:




Bayer-Monsanto is hellbent on shutting down peaceful protests of beekeepers.

A group of activists is fighting back in court. They've taken the case all the way to the Supreme Court, but they're running out of money and need your help.

Will you help them defeat Bayer?

A,

For years Bayer has been using dirty tricks to silence its critics, going so far as calling the cops on beekeepers peacefully protesting outside its annual meeting.

But a group of gutsy activists refuses to let Bayer crush our right to protest. They’ve chased the pesticide giant through the courts and made it all the way to the Supreme Court: they’re one step away from finally defeating Bayer.

But they’re also running out of money fast. To win, they need your help to pay for top-notch lawyers.

Back in 2017, Bayer tried everything it could to stop our protests outside its annual shareholder meeting. It even called the police and said the beekeepers posed a terror threat -- total lies of course, all to shut down the protests.

But with the help of SumOfUs members like you, a coalition of beekeepers and other activists have been fighting Bayer in court for our right to protest.

They made it all the way to the Supreme Court in Germany, and the court’s decision will be final.

If this goes Bayer's way, it'll be able to use the power of the police and courts to stop protests whenever it wants. The same goes for any other corporation in Germany. A dangerous precedent.

A, we can't let Bayer silence our voices. Because when we join forces, we win big. Nearly 400,000 of you came together just two years ago and won an EU-wide ban on another one of Bayer's toxic pesticides.

Let’s make sure Bayer’s attack on democracy will not prevail! If we raise more than these activists need, it will go towards powering our campaigning against Bayer and its bee-killing pesticides.
