Bayer — one of the world’s biggest producers of bee-killing pesticides — is about to hold its annual shindig for shareholders.
This gives us a crucial opportunity to take the fight to Bayer, and show its shareholders exactly what is being done in their name.
Bayer has been fighting tooth and nail to overturn Europe’s bee-killing pesticide ban. They’ve been busy fighting in court, lobbying behind-the-scenes and spending wads of cash in the process. Why? Because Bayer knows if Europe’s ban stays, it spells the end of its profits from selling bee-killing neonics.
SumOfUs was created to stand up to corporations putting profits ahead of our environment and our health. So we’re planning to get a group of beekeepers inside Bayer’s shareholder meeting to speak out for the bees, and make sure the shareholders can’t hide from our message.
Da jeg tidligere på året var i Thailand, besøgte jeg elefantreservatet BLES, som vi støtter med hjælp fra dyrevenner som dig. Efter med egne øjne at have set elefanter blive slået og leve i lænker i turistindustrien, var det en lettelse at komme til BLES.
Her blev jeg mindet om, at vi KAN give de stakkels, mishandlede elefanter et godt liv. Der er stadig alt for mange elefanter, der har brug for vores hjælp – men det føles godt at vide, at de reddede elefanter i BLES nu har friheden til at leve et godt elefantliv.
I BLES foregår alting på elefanternes præmisser – lige fra hvad tid, de går i gang med dagens vandretur ud i reservatet, til hvilke andre elefanter de tilbringer deres tid sammen med. Menneskene følger bare med og indretter sig efter dyrene.
In an incredibly dangerous move, the government has just proposed radical new rules that could make it as easy for fracking companies to drill as putting up a garden shed .
This would remove the rights of local people to have their say.
But the decision isn’t set in stone. The government is launching a consultation on its new plans. And that means we have a small window of opportunity to demand they don’t open the floodgates for frackers to drill across huge parts of the country.
On June 1st, local water defenders in Osceola Township are heading to court to stop Nestlé from sucking their community dry.
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ) granted Nestlé a permit to pump this community’s water at huge profit. But the township are fighting back and getting ready to challenge the decision court.
They have a strong case too — in 2009, Michigan courts ruled against Nestlé when it tried to make another a huge water grab.
SumOfUs members like you have been supporting Osceola Township since last year — and now the community have once again asked for your help.
These are just a very few examples of what is going on in the world, just in front of you.
So you see there is a lot of good hearted fighters around the world, fighting a good course for our Earth. Will you join or do you live your life in ignorance and with your eyes wide shot…???
