16 October 2014 / On this day the Large Board of Appeal of the European Patent Office (EPO) will hold a public hearing on patents on broccoli and tomatoes. The result of this precedence case will affect all other patent applications covering conventionally bred plants and animals. Therefore we are calling a demonstration in front of the EPA in Munich (Erhardtstrasse 27, Bob v. Benthem Platz 1) and intend to be present for the duration of the hearing.
The „large inflatable tomato“ and „the world’s largest broccoli“
We won’t leave the decision about our livelihood to the patent office!
We want clear prohibitions of patents on plants and animals !
Please spread the word, mobilize and come yourself!
