Tell Rep. Pingree and Sen. Sanders: The Public Should See These Monsanto Documents!

gavel laying on an open bookThere are now nearly 1,000 plaintiffs in lawsuits against Monsanto filed by people, or the families of people, who were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma after being exposed to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide.

As those lawsuits move through the courts, some, but not all, of the court documents have been made public—including documents suggesting that Monsanto and former EPA officials colluded to hide the truth about how Roundup may cause cancer and other diseases. But now the judge in the case seems unlikely to unseal additional documents filed with the court, during the discovery phase of the trials.

These documents may be the best way ever to find out what Monsanto has hidden in its filing cabinets about the health risks of Roundup.

We want to know the truth about how Roundup affects the health of families and children.

TAKE ACTION: Ask Rep. Chellie Pingree and Sen. Bernie Sanders to please intervene on behalf of the public by asking Judge Vincent Chhabria to unseal all of the documents related to the Roundup Products Liability Litigation (Case no. 3:16-md-02741-VC).

After you fill out this form, if you live in Maine call Rep. Pingree, if you live in Vermont call Sen. Sanders, and make this same request.

Rep. Pingree: (207) 774-5019

Sen. Sanders: (202) 224-5141

We’re lucky to have lawmakers like Rep. Pingree and Sen. Sanders on our side. They fought with us for GMO labeling, and they continue to defend farmers and consumers against corporate corruption.

Now, we need their help to convince U.S. District Court Judge Chhabria that the public has a right to know the truth about what Monsanto knows about the health impact of Roundup, how long the company has known it, and to what lengths company officials may have gone to bury that truth.

Glyphosate, the primary active ingredient in Roundup, is the world’s most widely used herbicide. Millions of Americans are impacted by any health risks associated with it. Moreover, glyphosate is up for review by the EPA. Any information indicating that glyphosate and Roundup are harmful to our health should be made public, so the EPA can factor that information into its decision about whether to ban this dangerous and widely used chemical.

Rep. Pingree and Sen. Sanders listen to citizens and consumers. Please let them know that you would appreciate their help with this urgent matter.
