This Saturday, August 18th, is Lemonade and Raw Milk Freedom Day in Washington D.C. From the LemonadeFreedom.com website:
This issue is about much more than just lemonade or raw milk. This issue is about the right to self ownership. You own your body. You have the right to do what you want to do with your body, just as long as you are not harming someone else or someone’s property. Lemonade Freedom Day is about freedom.
That’s the high-level, simplistic view that describes a place – America – where we no longer have the freedom to make, buy, or consume the food that we choose to put into our bodies in order to sustain our life and good health.
Remember, government food anti-freedom is about (1) seizing power, which benefits federal and local governments and provides justification for their growth, (2) eliminating the competition for the rent-seeking corporate state, meaning the big business-big government alliance, (3) displaying the omnipotent power of the enforcement state, including militarized police and federal/state agencies, and (4) affirming rejection of any individual’s right to self-ownership, and thus making the case that we are subjects to be ruled down to the level of our behaviors and personal lifestyle choices. There is no tyranny of good intentions here. Big Food-Big Agra is a state-sponsored industry cartel.
Here is the business wire with the location and time.
The lemonade stands and raw milk tasting booths will be set up on the mall at 12:00 noon on the lawn of the Capitol reflecting pool. The approximate location is around 3rd Street Southwest between Maryland and Jefferson in Washington DC.
According to a Weston A. Price Foundation mailing, the event will be streamed live here.
