Farmageddon is coming to Portland!
July 23 to 26, 2011 at the Hollywood Theater
This compelling new documentary examines the government’s attack on small family farms. Filmmaker Kristin Canty uses the stories of farmers, co-ops, and other real food providers to highlight the lopsided policies towards food freedom taken by misguided government bureaucracies determined to ban raw milk and limit Americans’ food choices. Using armed raids and other scare tactics, government agencies are threatening not only the producers directly under attack, but the consumers and communities that support them.
From the Farmageddon website:
Filmmaker Kristin Canty’s quest to find healthy food for her four children turned into an educational journey to discover why access to these foods was being threatened. What she found were policies that favor agribusiness and factory farms over small family operated farms selling fresh foods to their communities. Instead of focusing on the source of food safety problems – most often the industrial food chain – policymakers and regulators implement and enforce solutions that target and often drive out of business small farms that have proven themselves more than capable of producing safe, healthy food, but buckle under the crushing weight of government regulations and excessive enforcement actions.
Please support food freedom and join us at the Hollywood Theater from July 22 to 26 for Portland’s exclusive showing of Farmageddon.
