We’d hoped to be in St. Louis, Missouri this month.
We planned to bring in scientists to hold teach-ins on glyphosate. We planned demonstrations in front of Monsanto headquarters.
The plan was timed to coincide with the next Monsanto Roundup trials. What happened?
Monsanto and its parent company, Bayer, are doing everything in their power to delay the next trials.
According to the latest news reports, the next trial won’t happen until early next year—and it may be moved out of St. Louis.
The longer the trials are delayed, the longer justice is delayed for Monsanto’s victims.
Bayer remains "unfazed," according to a recent Bloomberg report.
A smug Werner Baumann, CEO of Bayer, recently told Bloomberg that despite his company’s plummeting stock price, and despite a 12-hour meeting with angry shareholders ending in a no-confidence vote (the first ever in Bayer’s history), a “tan and relaxed” Baumann said he “wasn’t losing sleep” over the ligitigation.
Meanwhile, Monsanto’s victims are losing their health. And their lives.
Monsanto-Bayer can play all the legal games they want. But sooner or later, they’ll have to face the music again.
And we’ll be there. Armed with the truth.
