We’ve got huge news for you! We just stopped the European Commission’s plans to approve glyphosate weedkiller for another 10 years — The Netherlands and Germany abstained from a crucial vote on the cancer-causing pesticide, causing the EU to cancel the vote entirely.
Both countries received hundreds of thousands of signatures from SumOfUs members just days before. Just a week ago people said our voices wouldn’t be heard over the noise from Monsanto and scientists with chemical industry ties — but we did it.
It goes to show that together we can stop some of the most powerful corporations out there.
