FINAL APPROVAL: Bayer-Monsanto

SumOfUs r1 You don’t want to wake up the morning of August 23 and wish you’d done more ...

Dear A,

For over a year now, SumOfUs members have worked to stop the nightmare merger of Bayer and Monsanto.

We've marched. We've rallied. We've run ads. We've hired lawyers to challenge the deal. And it all comes down to the next two weeks.

We know our pressure is being felt in Brussels. The EU Commission has delayed its final decision by two weeks to give itself more time to process all the feedback.

But this could be our last chance to stop this deal. If the EU approves it, then the only other decision making body that needs to weigh in is the American government -- and under President Trump, that's not a chance we want to take.

You don't want to wake up the morning of August 23 and wish you'd done more. It's now or never. Will you chip in to stop this merger from hell?

This merger is bad for consumers, farmers, and the environment. Bayer and Monsanto are two of the biggest agribusiness corporations in the world, and if they unite forces, they'll have so much power that small farmers will have no chance to resist their pesticide-soaked model of industrial agriculture.

That's why we've fought so hard to prevent this deal from going through. And thanks to your financial contributions, we've been able to hire some of the world's top trade lawyers and buy every single ad on the Politico.eu homepage.

But we’re now just 10 days from the EU Commission’s final deadline to approve or start an in-depth antitrust assessment of the merger between Bayer and Monsanto. We need to keep up the grassroots pressure right through August 22 in order to stop this deal!

A year of fighting to stop this awful deal could come down to the next two weeks. Will you chip in to help keep up the pressure?

Thanks for all that you do,
