Citizens Outraged As Bayer Sues the European Commission to Protect Bee-Killing Pesticides
WASHINGTON – September 13 – More than 200,000 people from around the world have signed onto a new petition by SumOfUs.org, a global consumer watchdog organization, urging Bayer to immediately drop its lawsuit against the European Commission in defense of its bee-killing pesticide products.

“Bayer is using the same tried-and-true tactics of climate-change denialists and Big Tobacco. The evidence clearly points to neonics as one of the major causes of bee die-off. Instead of adjusting their product line-up to protect our food supply, Monsanto, Syngenta, and Bayer have bought up bee research labs in order to churn out their own biased studies to cloud the data. With a third of our food supply dependent on bees at risk, over 200,000 people across the globe have denounced Bayer’s sham-science delay tactics and demanded the company respect sound science. It’s time for Bayer and Syngenta to listen up, and respect the European Commission’s decisions.”
