With new allies in the White House, Monsanto and Bayer are pushing hard to get U.S. sign-off on their proposed mega-merger. This merger raises serious anti-trust concerns, including increased prices and reduced choices for farmers. Bad news.
Tell Congress to stand up for farmers and oppose this merger.
The process is moving forward quickly, and mostly behind closed doors. According to public reports, the Department of Justice has until February 13 to review the proposed merger — but could give the greenlight any day.
The clock is ticking! Urge Congress to keep the pressure on DoJ to block this merger.
Already, just six corporations dominate food and farming worldwide — and other mergers are also in the works. If Monsanto and Bayer join forces, they will become the world’s largest seed and pesticide company.
Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) have already submitted letters to the DoJ opposing this merger. Urge the rest of Congress to speak up today!
