Open letter reg. Glyphosate re-authorisation and the EU model of farming
We have recently read in the news that you support a ten years re-authorisation of glyphosate, inter alia arguing that ‘It is too important for agriculture - and for urban dwellers
as well who haven't access to alternative problems in relation to weeds in their gardens either”.

CSOs Open Letter to the European Commission on agri-business mergers
Brussels, 27 March 2017
We, the undersigned organisations, call on the European Commission to reject the impending mergers of the world’s biggest agrochemical and seed companies.
In an already concentrated market, the world’s largest agri-business companies are proposing mergers – of Dow Chemical with DuPont, Monsanto with Bayer AG, and Syngenta with ChemChina. These mergers would exacerbate the problems caused by industrial farming – with negative consequences for the public, farmers and farm workers, consumers, the environment, and food security.
