In May, 2009 the head office of WWF-Netherlands received some extraordinary visitors, including a weeping panda, a Monsanto circus director, and various people in white overalls spraying "Roundup". The action is a protest on the occasion of the vote of the Round Table on Responsible Soy (RTRS). This forum allowed GM RoundupReady soy to be certified as 'responsible', while in reality, this soy is responsible for massive use of pesticides as well as deforestation and driving small farmers from their lands.

During the action, the Monsanto circus director tried to convince the Panda to sign the RTRS Declaration that ends with the words "Hereby I declare GM RoundupReady soy RESPONSIBLE". The Panda, however, did clearly not agree, and refused to sign. Meanwhile, pesticide sprayers went around the building to spray the plants with a healthy doses of 'Roundup'. Drummers and people spreading flyers made sure all employees were informed of the reason of the action.
