There are an estimated 385 million cases of acute pesticide poisonings each year.
That means about 44% of farmers and agricultural workers around the world are poisoned annually. And those numbers could rise if we don’t stop Bayer’s latest power grab.
Right now, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is trying to create a formal partnership with CropLife International -- the mega lobbying group that represents Bayer, Syngenta and over 300 pesticide companies.
Sign the petition demanding that FAO stop the #ToxicAlliance with CropLife.
CropLife’s sole purpose is to advocate for the use of its members’ products — which are hazardous pesticides and genetically modified seeds. For decades, these products have locked farmers into ever-escalating pesticide use and systematically undermined the rights and welfare of the majority of the world’s food producers.
Unless we stop this #ToxicAlliance, the companies that are poisoning farmers worldwide will get unprecedented access to power at the United Nations.
Join the global movement to save our food systems from Bayer, Cargill, Syngenta, and the other CropLife companies.
Instead of partnering with CropLife, FAO should support people-led, sustainable farming that mitigates climate change and reduces world hunger.
