Europe is really coming down on Monsanto. From an article in Quartz, Oct. 4:

Friction between Monsanto and the European Parliament started when the company last week (Sept. 28) said it would not participate in an Oct. 11 hearing to consider allegations that it wrongfully influenced regulatory research regarding the safety of glyphosate—a main ingredient in one of the company’s most popular products, the weed- and grass-killer RoundUp. In response, parliament booted all Monsanto’s lobbyists from parliamentary proceedings, and closed off access to its 751 individual members.

“Those who ignore the rules of democracy also lose their rights as a lobbyist in the European parliament,” Belgian parliamentary member Philippe Lamberts told The Guardian. “US corporations must also accept the democratic control function of the parliament. Monsanto cannot escape this.”

Praying the merger doesn't go through.
