Please come out and show your support for young mother Alorah and her
baby Carson. Faced with a threat from DHHS that Carson could be taken
away because the family fed him a homemade goat’s milk formula from
their own goats, this family has reached out to the broader community
Help us encircle them, support them and rally around them at 11:00 am September 5th in Cascade Park, State Street, Bangor.
From the Local Food and Community Self-Governance Ordinance which aims
to protect citizens from just this sort of agency overreach:
“Section 5.2. Right to Access and Produce Food. Name of Town citizens
possess the right to produce, process, sell, purchase, and consume
local foods of their choosing.
Section 5.3. Right to Self-Governance. All citizens of Name of Town
possess the right to a form of governance which recognizes that all
power is inherent in the people, that all free governments are founded
on the people?s authority and consent.
Section 5.4. Right to Enforce. Name of Town citizens possess the right
to adopt measures which prevent the violation of the rights enumerated
in this Ordinance.”
Standing together protects us all! Hope to see you next Thursday in Bangor!
Blessings on your day!
