Protect our health, stop Monsanto!

type:Petition, Protest
by:Deniz Zehra Tavli

The world’s most used pesticide is probably cancerogenic – leading scientists are warning now!

Monsanto demands from the World Health Organization to withdraw its groundbreaking report which could lead to a silencing of science. This can be preveneted if the public sends out an urgent call.
It is well known that the agrochemical industry is holding firmly our opaque regulatory system in its hands. But now is a unique opportunity: in the EU, glyphosate is checked officially and similar processes occur in Canada, Brazil and the United States. The Netherlands, Sri Lanka and El Salvador even consider a ban of the pesticide.

The danger is clear – this poison is in our food, used on our fields, playgrounds and streets. Let us ensure that it is withdrawn from the market!

Help banning the pesticide glyphosate by signing the petition adressed to the EU Commissioner for health, Vytenis Andriukaitis, the authorities in the United States, Canada and Brazil and all ministries and regulatory authorities for health and environmental policy.
