Mere days after a jury unanimously concluded that Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller caused Edwin Hardeman’s cancer, Monsanto’s parent company, Bayer, took out a full-page ad in the Wall Street Journal with this headline: “Let’s talk about Roundup® herbicides.”
As you might expect, Bayer’s ad wasn’t intended to discuss the truth about Roundup—it was intended to spread the same old lies.
The fact that Bayer was willing to splurge for an ad (the going rate for a WaPo full-page ad is $163,422) to try to convince the public that Roundup is safe, speaks volumes.
We can’t spend that kind of money on mainstream media advertising to counter the multitude of lies by companies like Monsanto and Bayer.
Instead, we’ve always relied on people like you to spread the truth by sharing our emails, and promoting our messages on social media.
But increasingly, our work is being censored. We need your help more than ever to keep the pressure on Monsanto, including our own lawsuit having to do with false advertising of Roundup sold to consumers. We're nearing the midnight March 31 deadline for our spring fundraising campaign—and we're still far short of our goal. Can you help by making a donation today? Thank you!
