Re. BREAKING: Bayer is taking the EU to court again!!

SumOfUs r1 ...

A, Bayer is taking the EU to court again.

Bayer tried to sneak this announcement out late on a Friday in the hope that we’d miss it. It thinks no one’s watching -- but it’s wrong.

With the support of SumOfUs members like you, we can beat Bayer. Because last time Bayer tried this, thousands of you clubbed together to get a brave group of beekeepers and scientists to defend the bees. And we won!

Our friends at the Bee Defender Alliance are ready to go back to court but A, they can’t do it without your help.

Please can you chip CA$91 to defend the bees from Bayer’s legal bullying?

BREAKING: Bayer just announced it’ll try to overturn an historic bee-saving ban in court.

If it wins, it’ll be game over for the bees.

The Bee Defender Alliance’s stood up to Bayer in court before, and they’re getting ready to do it again -- but they can’t, without your support.

Will you chip in to support their legal fight to protect the bees?

A,

Bayer won’t stop -- late yesterday afternoon it announced it’s trying yet again to fight the EU ban on some of the most dangerous bee-killing pesticides.

It’s time for us to send the brave group of Bee Defenders back into court! Last year, this small group of independent scientists and beekeepers took on the world's biggest pesticide companies: Bayer and Syngenta.

Thanks to SumOfUs members like you chipping in, they hired a team of kick-ass lawyers -- and won!

But this small coalition doesn’t have Bayer’s deep pockets, so once again they need your help to afford top class lawyers, to work up the best case possible. With your donation, in a few weeks time they’ll be in the European Court of Justice, defending the bee-saving ban again! Can you help them A?

Bees are vital to our food supply -- providing one of every three bites of food we eat. But bees and other pollinators are declining at catastrophic rates and neonic pesticides are a key culprit.

That’s why maintaining the EU’s ban on neonics is so important.

Bayer is already on the back foot: it lost its first legal attempt to force toxic neonicotinoids back onto our fields. But its new legal bullying puts the EU’s historic ban on three major neonics -- that SumOfUs members just helped win in April -- at risk again.

Together, let’s raise enough to launch a legal fund and double down on our campaign to protect the bees. If enough of us chip in, SumOfUs members can send our brave coalition of beekeepers back to the European Court to represent the bees.

We don’t have much time, Bayer has just announced its appeal and so we need to start preparing our case right away. Please can you chip in to support the Bee Defender Alliance now?

The chemical giant thinks it can bulldoze over the EU’s decision by tying it up in expensive legal action. But with your donation, the Bee Defender Alliance will be able to respond quickly to Bayer’s latest tricks -- paying for legal advice and other resources that the Alliance needs to win on behalf of the bees.

Bayer may have deep pockets, a big legal team and an army of powerful corporate lobbyists behind it, but time and again SumOfUs members have proven that when we stand together we punch above our weight.

Together, we won’t stand by as one chemical corporation wipes out millions of bees in pursuit of profit.

Please chip in now so that once again we can put up a fight to protect our precious bees - and win!
