Tell Big 6: We want off the pesticide treadmill

 

Momentum is building. People in communities around the world are standing up to the “Big 6” pesticide/biotech corporations to expose their aggressive, bottom-line driven push of hazardous pesticides into our food and farming systems.

Join the PAN community in Europe where three of the largest pesticide corporations are based and call on BASF, Bayer and Syngenta to halt the production and sale of highly hazardous pesticides. These chemicals are in our air, our water, on our food and are wrecking havoc in our bodies. No more. 

Sign on today to PAN’s citizen letter to the CEOs of the European companies: Martin Taylor, Syngenta, Chairman of the Board of Directors; Sandra E. Peterson, Bayer CropScience, Chief Executive Office; and Wayne T. Smith, BASF, Member of the Board of Executive Directors.

Every year, countless cases of pesticide poisoning occur. Syngenta, Bayer and BASF, as the three largest pesticide companies worldwide, are to a large extent responsible; your company markets more than fifty highly hazardous pesticides worldwide.

Since the mid-1980s, programs for a safe use of pesticides have been implemented to prevent pesticide poisonings. Nevertheless, people, farm animals, and the environment continue to suffer considerable harm due to highly hazardous pesticides.

Twenty-five years are enough. I call on you to end the sale of highly hazardous pesticides.

Sincerely,
