Sedgwick, Maine First to Enact Free Food Trade Immune to Federal Law, Say NO to Forced GMO Regulations

Maine towns outlaw federal government intervention in the food supply. The most successful model I’ve seen for local agriculture is the “Breaking Bad” model — food trade is done outside of all government surveillance or intervention, as if it were methamphetamine.

Sedgwick, Maine, the first town in the US to legalize any kind of food transaction as free and legal in order to keep the right to produce raw milk, organic produce, free-range eggs, and more, is revolutionizing the way America keeps its food rights – including saying no to GMOs. In other words, it is the first town to declare food sovereignty while opposing both state and federal laws.

      See loop hole. If you can find them.

    That’s an encouraging development. Revolution must start from the local level, as higher-up politicians are all bought and paid for.

    Enough small acts of resistance like this and we may suddenly find ourselves with a revolution.

    You just have to know that the Control Freaks have their panties in a knot over this…..hehhehe.

    Truthfully with the pattern of Authoritarian rule and Corpocratic vision that our government now holds , it will only be a matter of time before whole clean food will be treated like methamphetamine. Unless more people wise up and follow in the footsteps of the People of Sedgwick, Maine.

    Thank you for the re-blog 🙂
