(NaturalNews) A caravan of Raw Milk Freedom Riders (RMFR) will be making its way to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) headquarters in just a few days on Nov. 1 to protest against the agency's irrational ban on the sale and distribution of raw milk across state lines.
Max Kane, executive producer of FarmFoodFreedom.org and one of the speakers at the event, wants to know if the FDA will actually show up and try to enforce these laws against the mothers.
Kane recently tried to call the FDA to report the "illegal" activity that will soon take place in front the agency's main facilities in Silver Spring, Md., on Nov. 1. After getting shuffled around a couple dozen times to different offices and divisions of the FDA, he finally gets through to the voicemail of John Sheehan, director of the FDA's Division of Plant and Dairy Food Safety, and one of the head honchos in the war against raw milk.
In early 2011, the FDA used its interstate commerce clause to file a lawsuit against Dan Allgyer, an Amish farmer from Pennsylvania, alleging that he was illegally shipping raw milk across state lines into Maryland where the food is prohibited for sale. Consumers in other states are now challenging this lawsuit with one of their own against the FDA (http://www.naturalnews.com/029322_raw_milk_A...).
But a group of mothers has decided to take things one step further by organizing a caravan that will deliberately bring raw milk into Maryland from Pennsylvania, and stage a massive "drink in" in front of FDA headquarters, which is located at 10903 New Hampshire Avenue in Silver Spring. This offensive approach, which is drawing nationwide attention, has left the FDA literally speechless.
In his voicemail message, Kane invites Sheehan and any others at the FDA to either attend the event, or to come and take action against the mothers, whom he says will be parked on the southbound shoulder of Conowingo Road (US Route 1) in Rising Sun, Md., at exactly 10:30 am EST on Nov. 1. This is the official meeting spot just south of the Pennsylvania border where the caravan will meet up and proceed to FDA's headquarters.
