against Monsanto and Bayer Hundreds took to streets in Hamburg on Saturday to protest against the Bayer and Monsanto merger which would create one of the world's largest seeds and pesticides company. «When these two giants merge, the government will have fewer possibilities to act, because big economic enterprises have big political power,» said one of the protesters. Bayer AG and Monsanto... Еще agreed to a $66 billion (€59 billion) takeover deal in 2016. It sparked criticism among environmentalists and farmers all over in Europe.
