Mothers To Regulators: We Will Not Comply. Risking Jail to Defend Peaceful Voluntary Exchange

Washington, DC—On August 18, 2012 a group of mothers and others, members of the advocacy groups, the Raw Milk Freedom Riders and Lemonade Freedom Day, will take their raw milk and lemonade to the lawn of the US Capitol to celebrate their right to voluntary exchange.

By offering raw milk and lemonade for sale or barter, which is illegal in many places including Washington DC, these mothers and other activists risk criminal charges, and possibly jail.

Last August, in a similar protest, three people were arrested for selling 10-cent cups of lemonade.

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.

“The law has turned ordinary people into criminals for engaging in normal human behavior,” says Liz Reitzig, one of the event’s organizers. “I am proud to stand with others as we peacefully do not comply with these laws.”

    I love these women! If everyone of us took a small action like this we would be free by this time next week.
    No fighting or violence needed.

      Your right Scott, There should be a national Lemonade selling day where it is sold all over the country.

      Youll see how quickly people wake up then.

    Milk, milk, lemonade. Around the corner fudge is made.

    Raw milk, lemonade, freely exchanged by willing buyers and sellers? I hope they put the mothers in jail and the children in reform school. They are threatening the very foundations of American free enterprise and our beloved “free market”. It’s people like this that probably also plant gardens in their front yards! Where will this end if they are not apprehended and the full weight of American Justice is used to subdue such rebellious and criminal behavior. Thank God we live in a country that is not reticent to use whatever force is necessary to subdue and subjugate the struggling poor and middle classes both here and abroad.

    What these enforcers of anti freedom laws have to wake up to is that they’re also making their own graves because when their evil perverted leaders are through using them they’re next!22
