Tomorrow a group of mothers will buy milk in southeast Pennsylvania then caravan to the FDA headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland. Big deal right? Well, actually it kind of is, because the milk is raw, sales of which are “illegal” in Maryland.
Any half-thinking person knows that the simple act of buying raw milk isn’t a crime. There is no victim. It’s a consensual interaction. The thing that sets these mothers apart from Joe Sixpaack is that instead of cowering to arbitrary dictates they stand for what they know is right.
The sooner more of us do so the sooner we can live in a world where people don’t believe text on paper or a piece of metal on their chest legitimizes their actions.
If you’re in the Mid-Atlantic consider joining The Raw Milk Freedom Riders caravan tomorrow. If you’re out of the area watch their livestreaming feed. Hopefully this level of transparency – and commonsensical approach to this issue – will protect them from threats of ransom or cages. If that happens, we’ll update this post and work to get more eyes on their situation.
