BERLIN, GERMANY - JANUARY 22: Activists dressed as doctors pretending to resuscitate a corpse killed by dioxin and genetically-modified food participate in a demonstration against the agricultural industry on January 22, 2011 in Berlin, Germany. Tens of thousands of demonstrators, including farmers and animal-rights activists, protested against industrial farming techniques, the use of genetically-modified seeds and animals, mass animal husbandry and corporate interest lobbying. The demonstration comes in the wake of a nation-wide dioxin scandal that led to the quarantine of 6,000 farms. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)
