Bayer-Monsanto’s toxic, bee-killing pesticide just won’t go away.  
Together, we fought to ban glyphosate in Europe. But EU discussions for it to stay on the market are underway. And Bayer-Monsanto lobbyists are bombarding European leaders with biased studies to make their case. 
We have a big opportunity to stop this. The French president Emmanuel Macron has already said, when he takes on the highly influential EU presidency in a few weeks, he will push for “an accelerated phase-out of pesticides".   And, above all, with the French presidential elections around the corner, Macron will be under pressure to deliver on his promises.
But unless we keep the pressure up, it could be all talk. With Macron’s political future on the line, he will want to protect his reputation as a European leader who follows through with his commitments, both in France and throughout Europe. And a massive petition beyond the French borders to show him that all of us are watching could make sure he does just that.
