Sedgwick, Maine is first town to declare total food sovereignty, opposing state and federal laws
This is the right attitude toward gaining back our basic rights, whether it’s food rights (the right to buy and sell meat, eggs and produce with neighbors) or building codes. So even though the article may seem off-topic, it’s really not.
“(NaturalNews) There is a food revolution taking hold all over America, whether it is in the form of demanding labeling of GM foods, the right to produce and sell raw milk and other commodities, or – in the case of Sedgwick, Maine – declaring all local food transactions of any kind free and legal.

Published reports say the town has passed an ordinance that gives its citizens the right “to produce, sell, purchase, and consume local foods of their choosing,” regulations be damned.
