Protest against patent on broccoli at the European Patent Office

About 300 farmers and representatives of environmental and development aid organizations demonstrated against patents on plants and animals in Munich on October 26, 2011. After the European Patent Office had announced that it would maintain a patent on conventionally bred broccoli owned by the US company Monsanto, the demonstrators called on the German government - in particular Minister of Agriculture Ilse Aigner - to take legal action against the patent.
