Bayer-Monsanto takeover a 'marriage made in hell'

14 September 2016

Reacting to Bayer's reported takeover of Monsanto, Adrian Bebb, senior food and farming campaigner at Friends of the Earth Europe, said "Bayer's buyout of Monsanto is a marriage made in hell, which threatens to further lock in industrialised agriculture at the expense of nature, farmers and the wider public. While public support for local and greener food continues to boom, this mega corporation will be doing its best to force damaging pesticides and GM seeds into our countryside."

Movements resisting industrial agriculture will converge in October, where 600 farmworkers, farmers, activists and more from across Europe will meet in Romania for the second Nyéléni European Forum on Food Sovereignty.
