Bayer Offers $65bn to Win Control of Monsanto

In a scary move, "Germany's Bayer has raised its offer for Monsanto to $65bn (£49bn), or $127.50 a share, in a bid to create a global seeds and pesticides giant," as reported by BBC News. The sheer size of this merger is frightening because of the power they could wield. Additionally, this comes not long after DuPont and Syngenta announced they would be merging as well.

MONSANTO WOES: There are already lots of instances of how the government acts to benefit Monsanto. In the U.S., Monsanto’s influence over government runs so deep we recently became the first country in the world to UNLABEL GMOs. An even larger company would only be able to exert more influence on the government and this merger should not be allowed to happen.
