Mothers Threatened with Criminal Charges Openly Defy MDA

Farmer Charged Criminally for Providing Fresh Food to Mothers

Minneapolis, MN—Several Minnesota mothers who organize community access to local fresh farm foods plan to risk criminal charges by openly and publicly defying warnings from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA).  The MDA has threatened several mothers, conducted investigations against them and sent them warning letters that if they continue helping provide fresh food to their friends and neighbors, they will be subject to criminal charges and prosecution.  The MDA alleges the Mothers are violating food-handling regulations.

Dozens of individuals who are disgusted with what they regard as MDA’s overly aggressive tactics are expected to join in the same activity as these mothers.

“It is absolutely outrageous that during this time of economic crisis our state government is investigating and sending warning letters to mothers and putting farmers on trial who are helping provide communities with fresh foods.  It is my right to contract privately with a farmer for the food of my choice just as it is the right of every American,” says Melinda Olson a mother and recipient of one of the MDA’s letters.  “The MDA’s harassment against mothers will not work.  We plan to ignore this warning and continue operating as we are.  MDA should not waste taxpayer money investigating, prosecuting and jailing peaceful farmers and mothers for helping their communities secure fresh foods.  Our time to stand up against this tyranny is now!”

In addition to the threatening letters the MDA sent the mothers, MDA has brought charges against two local farmers for supplying their communities with fresh foods.  Mothers who rely on the food and delivery service of one of these farmers, Alvin Schlangen, are facing loss of their food supply if Schlangen is jailed on four misdemeanor charges for providing food to his community.  The charges against Schlangen stem from alleged handling of food without a permit, mislabeling food, and handling unprocessed, fresh milk, which is a crime according to the MDA.

Customers and supporters from around the state and country have planned a rally for Schlangen on the first day of his criminal trial on Monday, May 14 at 7:00 a.m. outside the Minneapolis courthouse.  At the rally supporters will sign a “Declaration of Food Independence” and demonstrate non-compliance against what they deem “unjust” regulations.  The rally is expected to draw hundreds.

  2. I am a Wisconsinite who has been concerned about this issue for a long time but couldn’t seem to get anyone to notice or care. I would love to get something started or join something already in progress.

  3. How totally doublespeak, upside down and backwards. Moms have right idea to ignore the idiocy and madness of such people. The inmates of asylum have taken us over!

  11. What you’re digging up on “Patenting Your Land” might prove to be useful for other states experiencing this kind of organized State Terrorism, like Michigan over non-COFA Pork Breeds. PLEASE keep apprised as to how this is working at my News Gathering EMail: drrexdexter@gmail.com, as I would be pleased to do whatever I can as a writer to pass all this along.

    • I hope you are finding the email I sent you helpful on Land patents. Please share it with others. I am from Michigan and I have forwarded Mark Baker info too but he doesn’t reply and Idon’t know if he contacted my mentor yet. It is very clear as to the definitions and transaltions I sent you that the Land patent is the way to go along with the Secured Party Creditor process, especially the 7th stage and final stage of the process. My mentor says that SPC’s are being sued, except for those that have completed his 7th stage, a Torah trust based on the bible and we become a Foreign Neutral, Minister of justice and an Ambassador and the 1828 Websters online dictionary also refers to the Embassador definition too. Have a nice day.

  18. If anyone would like help from my mentor with the Secured Party Creditor Process, bringing up the Original Land patent on all of your lands, as everyone needs to be on the same page and patent all lands in Minnesota as this is trully private property and they cannot tresspass on it since it is no longer part of the CORPORATE MATRIX and other document preparations and Material packets (I don’t profit from any) contact me at brendatheresatedders at yahoo dot come and I will forward his pdf file with contact number and email address. He is an expert in Administrative Law, Contract law, commercial law(ucc), etc but not an Attoney in law. Time is of the essence for Michigan, Minnesota and all other States in our 50 state union.
