Letters to the ministries

Successful letter campaign shows the great concern of civil society

Thousands of people from Austria, Denmark, Germany, Portugal, Switzerland and many other countries participated in our letter campaign until June 2017. They wrote their responsible ministries demanding a prohibtion of patents on conventionally bred plants:

“Pressure from civil society succeeded in strengthening current prohibitions in European patent law. But this is not yet a long term solution,” says Christoph Then, spokesperson for “No Patents on Seeds!” The EPO and big business will continue to abuse patent law to privatise the resources of daily food production. In reaction, we will maintain our pressure on political decision-makers.”

Thank you very much for your participation; still we will need your support in our future efforts to protect our common natural resources from privatisation!
