Stop The Monsanto-Bayer Merger
- by: SierraRise
- target: American and European Antitrust Agencies
Monsanto and Bayer have announced plans to merge, creating what would be the world's largest seed and pesticide maker.
Monsanto produces RoundUp, in addition to genetically-engineered seeds designed to withstand the herbicide. Bayer manufactures neonicotinoid pesticides, which have been implicated in bee die-offs.
So what do we get in return for their profits? Fewer options and higher costs.
The Monsanto-Bayer merger would create a near-monopoly over our food and agriculture. Sign the petition and tell American and European antitrust agencies to deny the merger.

Reject the proposed Bayer-Monsanto merger
Bayer has initiated a takeover bid to merge with Monsanto. This would create the world's largest seed and pesticide maker. I am afraid this move will reduce competition, raise prices for consumers and farmers, and result in an unacceptable degree of control over the agricultural industry.
With the risks so clear, I expect your agency to reject any attempt by these two corporations to merge.
