And what this infamous Monsanto demand in its court hearing?

This is big. They’re a $50 billion mega-corporation, infamous for legal strong-arm tactics. They have unlimited resources. If they get their hands on all of our private information, there’s no telling what they’ll use it for.

We have only days until we’re in court, and they “command” Avaaz to hand over every private email, note, or record we have on Monsanto’s chief poison — including the names and email addresses of hundreds of staff, activists, farmers and other allies!

We’ve had to urgently hire a team of outstanding lawyers to go up against Monsanto’s best. Just fighting this subpoena (read it here) is costly, and it could be just the beginning.

We don’t know Monsanto’s plan, but we know one reason why this is coming — Avaaz has repeatedly beaten Monsanto in huge regulatory battles, including blocking the long-term re-licensing of glyphosate, the herbicide that is the cornerstone of their chemical empire. We’re winning. So they’re changing the game.

There aren’t many corporations in the world that are more powerful than Monsanto. The fact that we really can defeat them, shows just how real our movement’s people power has become. If we stick together, with hope and determination, we really CAN change the world!

The subpoena indicates that Monsanto needs all our private information to fight class-action lawsuits against them claiming that their glyphosate caused people’s cancer.

If that seems absurd to you, you’re not alone. But they’ve gotten the authority of a US court behind them, and we urgently need the best lawyers behind us.
