(NaturalNews) After successfully rallying hundreds of parents and food freedom advocates for its inaugural raw milk rally at the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, just a few weeks ago, the Raw Milk Freedom Riders (RMFR) are riding once again! On December 8, 2011, a caravan of food freedom patriots will make the trek from Wisconsin to Chicago's Independence Park to distribute raw milk and cookies, and collectively take a stand for food freedom.
Birthed by the Farm Food Freedom Coalition (FFFC), the RMFR movement on November 1, 2011, successfully hauled a load of raw milk from Pennsylvania, where it can be legally sold, to Maryland, where it cannot be legally sold. Now the group plans to do the same thing from Wisconsin, where raw milk sales are illegal, to nearby Illinois, where it can only be sold to consumers directly from the farm.
The caravan will meet at US-14 E and 6 Corners Road at the border of Illinois and Wisconsin just south of Walworth, Wisc., at 10:00 am on Dec. 8. From there, the riders will travel south and east into Chicago via I-90, and commence at Independence Park for the official rally at 11:30 am. Independence Park is located at 3850 West Irving Park Road.
Liz Reitzig, co-founder of FFFC, will be joined by heath freedom heroes Max Kane, Michael Schmidt, David Gumpert, Kathy Pirtle, John Moody, Jim Marlowe, and others in distributing 100 gallons of raw milk and cookies to event attendees as a statement of solidarity in support of freedom
of food choice and dietary privacy. Anyone interested in joining the caravan or attending the rally at Independence Park is encouraged to show up and express his or her support.
Like he did for the first RMFR event in Maryland, health freedom advocate Max Kane has once again challenged the FDA to see if the agency will show up to the Chicago
event and try to take enforcement action against the riders, which it did not do in Maryland. You can view his video here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZK1VpnkANRY
RMFR Chicago has also created a Facebook event page by which you can learn more about the event, and confirm your attendance if you plan to attend:
