Cue Nemesis, please? Because isn’t it Her job to stomp hubristic asshats into fertilizer-worthy mush? Because if trying to sue basically an entire continent isn’t hubris, I don’t know what would qualify. Seems Bayer (And man, I don’t even buy their aspirin anymore!) thinks a ban on the pesticide most closely linked to honeybee mortality is “disproportionate”.
Wow, talk about your SLAPP lawsuit on steroidal crack, what? Gee, I guess the idea is that corporations can more or less run America has gone to their greedy-gut heads? So now, they want to push Europe around, even though there are signs of recovery amongst honeybees in Europe. There is a petition to sign to tell them to knock it the fuck OFF, and though I don’t think the big corporate hegemonies give a shit what we think, signing at least tells them we see what they are doing!
