As promised, and thanks to several donations including a payment arrangement for my articles at Activist Post, we’re proud to launch the new website for Food Freedom.
There are still some kinks to work out, but if you don’t mind the dust, just don your hard hat and take a look: http://foodfreedomgroup.com

The 2012 Farm Bill process appears to be moving very quickly, so we need the public to help us urge the Senate to include in the Farm Bill both the Livestock Marketing Fairness Act and the Ban on Packer Ownership of Livestock. These bills will help protect the competitiveness of the US cattle market, by slowing the rapid monopoly concentration of the U.S. feeding industry.
Please call your U.S. Senators this week and urge them to become a cosponsor on both the Livestock Marketing Fairness Act (S. 1026) and the Ban on Packer Ownership of Livestock (S. 2141).
