Food Sovereignty - Our Basic Human Right!

Joint Resolution Expressing The Sentiment Of The Legislature For Food Sovereignty & "Small Town Rejects Federal Interference, Declares Food Sovereignty"

Date:   6/10/2011 5:06:51 AM   ( 4 y ) ... viewed 3420 times

Sedgwick is the first locale in the country to pass a “Food Sovereignty” law.

Update October, 13, 2011 -
“We have faith in our citizens’ ability to educate themselves and make informed decisions. We hold that federal and state regulations impede local food production and constitute a usurpation of our citizens’ right to foods of their choice.”:

"The State of Maine":

WHEREAS, according to the Declaration of Independence, all people "are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness"; and

WHEREAS, food is human sustenance and is the fundamental prerequisite to life; and

WHEREAS, the basis of human sustenance rests on the ability of all people to save seed and grow, process, consume and exchange food and farm products; and

WHEREAS, it is our obligation as elected representatives of the people of Maine to protect the fundamental freedoms as enshrined by the Constitution of Maine and the United States Constitution and to protect agricultural, ecological and economic diversity and sustainability for a free and healthy society; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED: That We, the Members of the One Hundred and Twenty-fifth Legislature now assembled in the First Regular Session, on behalf of the people we represent, and in recognition of our State's proud agricultural heritage, take this opportunity to oppose any federal statute, law or regulation that attempts to threaten our basic human right to save seed and grow, process, consume and exchange food and farm products within the State of Maine.

"Food Rights Hour" with a call-in by Chef Jem:

Listen to the first hour from the start or advance to about 33 minutes and in a few minutes I'm invited on.
