Petition Going for One Million Signatures
Monsanto isn't satisfied with just selling us herbicides and
pesticides for coating our crops. Now they're using a European legal loophole to
patent away varieties of cucumber, broccoli, melons and conventional ways of
breeding fruits and veggies abroad -- forcing growers to pay them for the
very seeds they're planting!
Don't let Monsanto keep buying up Mother Earth. If we can
reach out to countries like Germany, France and the Netherlands where opposition
to Monsanto is growing, we can force a vote among the state of the European
Patent Convention to stop the biotech giant in its tracks.
have a chance to stop Monsanto from setting a dangerous precedent and
help fix the European patent laws for good. Will you join us?
TO EPC MEMBER STATES: We urge you to call on the EPO Administrative Council
to close the loopholes that allow corporations like Monsanto to patent plants
and conventional breeding methods today. http://act.watchdog.net/petitions/2739?n=35177222.oLWY-9
