Mothers Plan to Risk Arrest Thursday - Raw Milk Freedom Ride!

Chicago, IL—On Thursday, December 8, a group of mothers will risk arrest and other penalties by purchasing fresh, unprocessed milk from a small farm in Wisconsin, transporting it to Chicago’s Independence Park and distributing the milk to other mothers who need it for their families from 11:30am-2:00pm.

Why should such a seemingly innocent act risk arrest? Federal law 21 CFR § 1240.61 prohibits interstate movement and distribution of raw milk for human consumption. This U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation applies to individuals, or “agents” acting on their behalf. The mothers who purchase the milk will be acting as “agents” on behalf of other mothers who cannot make the trip.-Civil Disobedience for Natural Food Moms in Midwest Mothers Plan to Risk Arrest Thursday To Provide Healthy Foods For Their Families

Max Kane calls FDA's Division Head of Food Safety John Sheehan, and informs John that the Raw Milk Freedom Riders are coming to Chicago to distribute over 100 gallons of raw milk on December 8th 2011.
