Help protect the bees and sign the petition against Bayer’s latest attack!

Wow. Bayer’s trying to overturn an EU ban on bee-killing pesticides -- if it wins it would jeopardise the huge progress we’ve made this year for the bees.

We need to prove there’s still massive support for the ban. Sign the petition now to tell Bayer that we won’t back down until it drops its lawsuit against our bees!

Bayer’s just announced it’s trying to overturn a historic ban on bee-killing pesticides in court.

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

Hundreds of thousands of SumOfUs members just helped win a landmark EU-wide ban on toxic neonics. We can’t sit back and let the pesticide industry destroy all that we’ve achieved for the bees.

Sign the petition now to tell Bayer to drop its lawsuit against the bee-saving ban!

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.

In May this year, the European Court of Justice ruled in favour of a partial ban on three neonics -- and we hoped the case was finally settled for the bees.

But now, Bayer announced it wants to drag the EU back into court again and appeal. If it wins, it could wreck the recent almost complete ban too!

But people power is Bayer’s biggest threat.

Thousands of SumOfUs members have already chipped in to send the Bee Defender Alliance -- a small group of independent scientists and beekeepers -- and their kick-ass lawyers back into the European Court of Justice to take on Bayer. A huge petition will show Bayer, decision makers, and the media that people across Europe still support the bees -- and we won’t back down until Bayer stops its bullying tactics.

Sign the petition now to help stop Bayer's legal bullying once and for all.

When Bayer got the greenlight for its merger with Monsanto this year, two of the world’s most toxic chemical corporations combined forces -- with a track record of environmental crimes a mile long from DDT to Agent Orange.

This lawsuit is the new mega-corporation’s first major attack. Let’s use all our power to defy Bayer-Monsanto -- before it wrecks all the gains we’ve made for the bees.

The new bigger 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, let’s protect our landmark ban and show Bayer that we won't tolerate it putting its profits ahead of our planet's health.

Thanks for all that you do,
