THE CONSTITUTION OF THE CITIZENS OF EUROPE


The most fundamental human rights are the rights to health and life. These rights are not only threatened by military conflicts, but also by corporate interests and their increasing attempts to exploit the human body and knowledge of it as their exclusive property and source of profits.

WE THEREFORE PROCLAIM AS INALIENABLE RIGHTS FOR EVERY EUROPEAN:

THE RIGHT TO HEALTH

Our health and our bodies are the most valuable goods we have. They must not be exploited as a marketplace for patented drugs or any other form of commercialization. The expansion of diseases as markets for drugs is unconstitutional.
Any healthcare system based on these principles and promoting them should be outlawed.

THE RIGHT TO LIFE

The genome of humans as the blueprint of life and the biological basis of our existence, belongs to all mankind. Efforts to own this genetic code with the goal to re-build, sell and manipulate the human body or parts of it for corporate gain is unconstitutional and therefore prohibited.

THE RIGHT TO NATURAL FOOD

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 bears the danger that our food supplies are controlled by corporate interests. As with health and life, the monopolization of food leads to the control of entire societies.

SUCH ACTIVITY IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL

The reason why these fundamental human rights are not yet universally accepted and applied is the principle of patenting. Patents are the economic instrument of inflating returns on investments for entire industries including those industries that directly affect human health and life.


LIFE MUST NOT BE PATENTED

In order to enforce this principle and protect the health and lives of this and future generations of Europeans, patents in the fields of health, life and food are declared unconstitutional. We call upon the CITIZENS of Europe who will read this proposed CONSTITUTION OF THE CITIZENS OF EUROPE to support it with their signatures.

THE IDEA OF EUROPE FOR THE PEOPLE AND BY THE PEOPLE

This proposed constitution serves as a blueprint defining fundamental human rights across Europe, including the right to healthy environment, respect for human dignity and protection of social values. We are passing this call to the citizens of Europe. They have been the true guardians of remembrance preserving the historic memory across generations and will continue the relay of remembrance and relay of life.
