I invite you to please visit http://NoNAISl.org and read at least the first paragraph. Then contact your local media to help spread the word about NAIS. Write them, email them, fax them, phone them. Tell them to go visit http://NoNAIS.org for themselves. From there they can read the original USDA draft proposal for the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) that threatens to trample our Constitutional rights to keep livestock and our livelihoods.
If you’re sick of hearing me talk about NAIS, don’t worry, I probably won’t say much more about NAIS for another ten days here at Sugar Mountain Farm. But please speak up while we still have the chance.
“As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances,there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air however slight, least we become unwitting victims of the darkness.”
Justice William O. Douglas,
US Supreme Court
