BAYER STOCKHOLDERS VOTE TO KILL THE BEES
…but citizens around the WORLD are still signing the PETITION demanding the cessation of production of BEE-KILLING PESTICIDES!
Update: 30 April 2012
It’s outrageous. Despite our massive petition delivery directly into the Bayer meeting, major shareholders voted to keep their bee-killing poisons. Let’s keep up the pressure — sign the petition and send to everyone. When we reach one million signatures the petition will be delivered to the Board of Management and Supervisory Board of Bayer, and our next step is to call for strong government regulation to save the bees.

Quietly, globally, billions of bees are dying, threatening our crops and food. But if Bayer stops selling one group of pesticides, we could save bees from extinction.
Four European countries have begun banning these poisons, and some bee populations are already recovering. But Bayer, the largest producer of neonicotinoids, has lobbied hard to keep them on the market. Now, massive global pressure from Avaaz and others has forced them to consider the facts, and in 24 hours, Bayer shareholders will vote on a motion that could stop these toxic chemicals. Let’s all act now and shame the shareholders to stop killing bees.
The pressure is working, and this is our best chance to save the bees. Sign the urgent petition and send this to everyone — let’s reach half a million signers and deliver it directly to shareholders tomorrow in Germany!
