Bayer and Monsanto are desperately trying to merge into one giant agri-chemical corporation. Together, they will control a huge slice of what what farmers grow, and ultimately what we eat. If the merger is to be successful, the two companies must gain approval of competition authorities all over the world, including from the EU. Bayer has managed to “convince” Donald Trump to back the mega-merger, and now there is really only one organisation that has enough clout to stop the deal -- the European Union.
While our fight is in Europe, the struggle against these mega-mergers is global. There are growing movements of farmers, consumers and citizens like us, who protest against it. None of the important competition authorities have yet signed off on the mergers. It is up to us to hold Margrethe Vestager accountable and demand to stop the merger.
