Raw Milk Freedom Riders
Program length – 5:00
FDA actions a shameful use of force
“Not only are the FDA’s actions a shameful use of force, they are also a serious threat to my freedom and my family’s food supply” says Karine Bouis-Towe, Founder of the Farm Food Freedom Coalition and Grassfed on the Hill, a local food buying club. “Moms everywhere are disgusted by the FDA casting us into criminals for feeding our families nutritious food, just because that food happens to come from a farm in a different state!”
Under FDA regulations [21 CFR § 1240.61] implemented in 1987, it is illegal for anyone to transport raw milk intended for human consumption across state lines. That includes individuals purchasing it legally in one state and crossing into another state where they live.
Notable leaders in the “local foods” and “foods rights” movements will join mothers from across the country for the demonstration. Prior to their planned peaceful demonstration, a caravan of mothers will cross state lines with raw milk and invite the FDA to witness what the agency wrongly considers to be a criminal act.
