Luckily, the European Patent Office is controlled by 38 member states who, with one vote, can end dangerous patents on food that is bred using conventional methods. Even the European Parliament has issued a statement objecting to these kinds of destructive patents. Now, a massive wave of public outcry could push them to ban the patenting of our everyday food for good.

The situation is dire already -- Monsanto alone owns 36% of all tomato, 32% of sweet pepper and 49% of cauliflower varieties registered in the EU. With a simple regulatory change, we could protect our food, our farmers and our planet from corporate control -- and it's up to us to make it happen:

It’s unbelievable, but Monsanto and Co. are at it again. These profit-hungry biotech companies have found a way to exclusively ‘own’ something that freely belongs to us all -- our food! They’re trying to patent away our everyday vegetables and fruits like cucumber, broccoli and melons, forcing growers to pay them and risk being sued if they don’t.

855,890 have signed: the signatures just keep pouring in from every country in Europe & the USA, & just saw one from Uruguay.

Let's hope it'll make a difference.

Vandana Shiva is my idol! It's thanks to her that I became aware of the corporate takeover of the food chain & the disappearance of heritage varieties of rice; Monsanto & GMOs; the impossibility of biodiversity to co-exist with GMOs & Roundup Ready pesticide; seed saving & food sovereignty; Coke & water rights.

Thank you for signing this petition. (If you accidentally sign a petition twice, you'll only be counted once.) Now, help the campaign grow by sharing it with friends! The more people join this campaign, the more powerful our call will be -- please help spread the word:

Had already signed the petition as Avaaz sends me links to petitions that need signing. This is so scary and must be prevented from happening.

Noted, "signed" and sent by e-mail to Green Action (Friends of the Earth - Croatia) and Animal Friends Croatia. I also did share on Facebook but that usually does not get noticed.

(I apologise to all for not being active on Care2 and for not replying to e-cards. I have been getting "bogged" on Facebook and the Croatian media and also work in my apartment).
