BREAKING: Glyphosate

SumOfUs r1 We’ve teamed up with the Brussels government to sue the E.U. over its illegal approval of glyphosate. ...

We’re on our way to the European Court of Justice to stop the illegal approval of glyphosate. If we win, it’ll be the nail in glyphosate’s coffin.

This is going to be a long and expensive process -- and we can’t do it without your help.

A,

We've just filed the initial papers to join a lawsuit at the European Court of Justice to stop the E.U.’s relicensing of the notorious weedkiller, glyphosate. We’ll be joining the legal case of the Brussels regional government.

We’re *this* close to stopping glyphosate for good.

But the fees for this case are likely to be massive and we don’t have much time to raise enough to cover the costs.

We’re counting on you A, will you chip in to take on Bayer and stop glyphosate in court?

These last weeks I've been up to the early hours with our lawyers preparing the final bits and pieces of paperwork for the lawsuit. And we've finally filed them at the ECJ. Now SumOfUs is an official part of the lawsuit against glyphosate, we can really put all of our people-powered energy behind it.

And honestly, I think we can win this. You know why? Because we have people like you supporting us and the law on our side.

EU policy says that our safety, not corporate profits, must be prioritised when licensing chemicals.

That’s why the decision to relicense glyphosate is clearly illegal. And now it's up to us to push the EU to uphold the law and kickback against the corporate giants.

A, we’ve come so far, we can’t give up now. This is our last chance and we don’t have much time -- please will you chip in today so that we can take on Bayer and stop glyphosate in court?

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Bayer’s shady Roundup weedkiller. The chemical has been so widely used it shows up in our bodies and in a lot of our food. But the World Health Organisation has said it probably causes cancer.

Since Bayer swallowed Monsanto and became one massive mega-corp, it’s even more important we join with the Brussels government to take on the European Commission over glyphosate and keep fighting back.

This is gonna be a critical moment for the newly created monster-Bayer. Our opposition is bound to have an army of lawyers on its side, but we have a much stronger team, the combined power of SumOfUs members like you.

Hundreds of thousands of you have joined the movement to challenge the agro giants: you've paid for ads, written letters, sent tweets and phoned decision-makers directly.

Together, we stopped Bayer from getting the fifteen, then ten-year licenses that it wanted for glyphosate. And now we have a final opportunity to make sure Bayer gets no licence at all, but we need your support it make it happen.

A, we’ve come so far, we can’t give up now. This is our last chance and we don’t have much time --please, will you chip in today so that we can take on Bayer and stop glyphosate in court?
