This Week - The Right to Farm or the Right to Harm

Missourians will vote on a constitutional amendment called “The Right to Farm.”  Does that mean that people do not now have the right to farm but the amendment would give it to them?  Or, could someone be trying to pull the wool over your eyes?  Wes Shoemyer, of Missouri’s Food for America, explains that Missouri law already guarantees rights to family farmers; but the so-called “Right to Farm” would extend these rights to corporations.  That could give advantages to CAFOs (confined animal feeding operations) and huge corporations that are not even headquartered in Missouri.  This Green Time (No. 452) features the movie “A Better Way to Farm” with Dr. John Ikerd.  It is produced by the Gateway Greens in conjunction with KNLC Channel 24.  Call 314-727-8554 or contact don@greentime.tv for info.
