Get active! Oppose the New Zealand Government Food Bill 160-2
Sorry to get all activist-like on you guys so quickly, but this is something that I really believe in. Please, take time to read this and sign the petition.
Producing and sharing out own food is a basic human right. It’s not something that should ever be controlled by the government.
This bill will have serious effects on our ability to produce our own food and operate initiatives such as community gardens, food co-ops, heritage seed banks, farmers markets, bake sales, and roadside fruit & vegetable stalls.

The people who propose these laws are not making them in the interest of health and safety for the population. They are making them in the interest of regulation and control of the food supply.
Apparently we live in a democracy – lets put that to the test. Click here to sign a petition against the food bill and show that you care about our future of food.
