In addition today I ask the you all sign the petition asking our Elected officials….Whom do Your Elected Officials Represent??? You may do so here.

For years, the SumOfUs community has been knee-deep in the fight against Monsanto and its worst excesses. From oppressing farmers to suing entire governments for daring to label GMOs, Monsanto’s ongoing abuses keep us all busy.

But next Friday, we have a real shot at ending Monsanto’s track record of bad decisions: by forcing CEO Hugh Grant to answer to someone other than himself. Will you call on Monsanto shareholders to vote in favour of executive accountability at this month’s general meeting of shareholders?

Be a part of this game-changing move — sign the petition asking Monsanto shareholders to demand accountability at the top.

For too long, Hugh Grant has answered to no one, acting as both CEO and Chair of the Board. And while we’ve all dreamt of being our own boss, when you’re the head of one of the world’s most powerful and notorious companies, it’s a recipe for disaster. To rein in Monsanto’s worst offenses, we need independent oversight of its management by the Board of Directors.

That’s why SumOfUs members and Monsanto shareholders hatched a plan to demand change at the top of Monsanto. At this month’s annual general meeting, we’re submitting a shareowner proposal calling for an independent chair of its Board of Directors. Doing so wouldn’t just good for the world, it would be smart business for shareholders. That’s why we believe that together, we can actually win.

Sure, Monsanto is a force to be reckoned with. It makes billions in corporate profits that allow it to fund an army of lobbyists and corrupt democratic processes all over the world. It’s slandered scientists who dare question the safety of its products. But even Monsanto has an Achilles heel: all of us.

Sign the petition to Monsanto shareholders and be part of transforming Monsanto from the inside out.

Together, we can win the fight against a global giant like Monsanto. We’ve done it before: After SumOfUs members joined up with Quaker activists and shareholders of PNC Bank, we got PNC to end its funding of destructive coal mining.

Now, can we count on you to take on Monsanto?
