Local Food Sovereignty in Maine


Three towns in Maine declared earlier this year that direct sales of food to consumers are exempt from inspection and licensing requirements, regardless of what state or federal law requires. Bob St. Peter, one of the organizers, explains the thinking behind the ordinance in this interview with Carl Etnier.

Note: The second part of this audio file is an interview with Burlington, Vermont attorney Bob Rachlin, who has defended two prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. He considers what the US justice system may have had in store for Osama bin Ladin had he been captured alive.
