Not sure if you all have heard of this new food bill to be passed, I say to be passed as it must be passed to meet our obligations as members of The World Trade Organisation.
This is effectively going to make it illegal to give away seeds, spare produce etc to friends family and neighours, it also means without permission from government you will be breaking the law if you sell any, eg at markets etc, or as a cottage industry.
It also gives police the ability to raid your home etc if suspected of any of the above, without having to get a warrant. Using any equipment felt necessary such as guns.
This also means they are basically trying to make a Self sufficient lifestyle illegal.
This is a Bill that is going to affect many many members of this forum, this also means that the chances are the next thing to go will be the ability to hunt, fish and trap, as this is going to be the next side of the food chain that big business and government are going to wish to control.
Please, if you feel that we have the right as human beings to be able to grow our own food, and help out others with some food etc please go and sign this petition
And where ever possible make others aware of it and lets make some noise...
