Our Call for a Movement of Life
As we describe below, the most fundamental human rights are the rights to health and life. However, these rights are increasingly threatened by global corporate interests that consider the human body as their market place and source of unlimited profits. Today, therefore, at the beginning of the 21st Century, the people of the world have to unite to protect their inalienable human rights. Towards achieving this goal, we urge you to get involved with the Movement of Life and show your support by signing the petition at the bottom of this page.
The Right to Health
The protection of our health is the most important human right. Over the past century, our health has come under the increasing influence of an investment industry that thrives from the continuation and expansion of diseases as markets for patented drugs. The efforts by pharmaceutical corporations to monopolize human health on a global level have become the greatest obstacle to the prevention, and ultimately the eradication, of today`s most common diseases.
Any business model that is based on the deliberate expansion of diseases violates the fundamental human right to health and must be prohibited worldwide. This will pave the way for mankind to largely eliminate heart disease, cancer and many other diseases within this century.
The Right to Life
In a similar way, the right to the biological foundation of life is threatened by these very same corporate interests. The human genome – the blueprint of life and the biological basis of our existence – has become the target of large-scale commercial exploitation through the patenting of genes.
The genetic code is the inalienable property of all mankind. All efforts to commercialize this genetic code, with the goal to re-build, sell and manipulate the human body or parts of it for corporate gain, must be prohibited worldwide. The knowledge of our blueprint of life should be exclusively used to benefit all mankind.
The Right to Natural Food
Likewise, the genetic information of all plants and the food that has been growing in our fields and gardens for millennia belongs to all mankind. Manipulation and alteration of the genetic code of plants, with the goal of patenting them and creating global market monopolies of human nutrition, bears the danger that our food supplies are abused to benefit corporate interests. The monopolization of our food enables corporate control over the fate of entire societies. This undermines the fundamentals of democracy and violates human rights. Access to healthy, unaltered food is a precondition for a healthy society.
A Breathtaking Perspective
As a consequence, the giant economic and human resources that will be freed following the liberating of human health can be used to fight the most burning global problems of our time, including hunger, malnutrition, poverty, illiteracy, unemployment and environmental threats.
