Mr. Bayer-Monsanto has to resign, and Bayer must change
Chemicals giant Bayer is out of control -- and its CEO must step down
before he does any more harm.
Bee-killing neonics. Cancer-causing glyphosate. The list goes on and on.
It's got to change!
Sign our petition to Bayer's top boss, and I'll deliver it to him NEXT
FRIDAY at the company's annual shareholder meeting in Germany.

Bayer is dragging suffering cancer patients through court. It’s
churning out one toxic pesticide after another while lobbying hard
to keep them on the market. And it’s gained unprecedented control over
our food supply by merging with Monsanto.
One man is responsible for all this: Werner Baumann, CEO of
Bayer-Monsanto. And the time is overdue for him to resign.
You can help make it happen. Next Friday, April 26, we’re headed
to Bayer’s big annual shareholder meeting to make the case that
Baumann’s greedy business model is hurting people, the planet -- and
Bayer’s reputation. And we’re going to deliver this petition to prove
that people like you think so, too.
We know some Bayer shareholders want Baumann out -- there’s talk of a
“revolt” this year after two courts in the United States ordered the
company to pay tens of millions of dollars in damages to Monsanto's
cancer victims. With enough members like you on our side, we can get
him replaced with someone who’ll reverse Bayer’s destructive
Demand that Werner Baumann step down as Bayer’s CEO!
The minute Baumann took over as Bayer's head honcho in 2016, he started
working on the Monsanto mega-merger -- a disastrous acquisition that
spawned the biggest and most dangerous agrochemical corporation in the
That merger gave him control over the toxic herbicide glyphosate --
which he still insists is not linked to cancer, despite US courts ruling
otherwise. Under his direction, Bayer is refusing to pay glyphosate
victims like Dewayne “Lee” Johnson the damages they deserve.
At the same time, the corporation is lobbying tooth and nail to get
its bee-killing neonicotinoid pesticides back on European shelves,
after SumOfUs members like you pushed the EU to ban them last
Werner Baumann is a menace: Tell him to resign!
SumOfUs members like you have been challenging Bayer every step of the
way -- and you’re helping stop it dead in its tracks to protect our
bees, food supplies, and our health. Without your people power at this
big meeting, we won’t stand a chance of making an impact.
You’ve done this before. Public pressure from over 70,000 SumOfUs members
like you helped get villainous Uber CEO Travis Kalanick to resign in
With Bayer’s stock tumbling fast after its latest court loss, now’s
the time to push for meaningful change and a leader who won’t put people,
bees, and global food supplies in danger while chasing after a quick
buck. We’ve got less than two weeks to go -- will you sign and give
Bayer a piece of your mind?
Bayer CEO Werner Baumann: Resign now!

Thanks for all that you do,
Anne, Eoin and the team at SumOfUs
