Anytime you can attract front page headlines, its a good day to be a publicist! Steve Dinan, food safety reporter for the Washington Times penned the front page story in last Friday’s paper.
Activists to take on Capitol Hill: Lay Off our Milk, Lemonade.
There are already 139 comments on the story, I strongly suggest you read it and add your comment. When papers see the interest from the public, they will be emboldened to cover this issue more aggressively.
Washington Times blogger, Adam Helfer, had this story, Moms Risk Arrest: Capitol Hill Protest for Raw Milk and Lemonade Stands, picked up by the Drudge Report and it was a trending topic on MSN.com.
Reason TV put together this great montage of the sights and sounds at the event!
Here is The Angel Clark Show, a liberty podcast, coverage of the National Lemonade and Raw Milk Freedom Day, which starts with an interview of Kristen Canty:
And, Fox and Friends interviewed Margie McKeown, the Libertarian Candidate for Lt. Governor of Delaware and her daughter about why they participated in the rally. Fox shied away from covering the raw milk aspect and just focused on the lemonade stand shutdowns:
Margie and her daughter flew their raw milk colors proudly at the Capitol Hill protest! Turns out they own a cow and drink their own raw milk. Margie told me she loves Weston A. Price Foundation!
We Are Change also covered the civil disobedience demonstration which was held near the U.S. Capitol Reflecting Pool.
Luke Rudkowski who tweets @Lukewearechange live broadcasted the event for WeAreChange on #Ustream! Check it out! Aug 18, 2012 2:21 PM http://ustre.am/:1G32X I got a chance to describe Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, my interview appears at 1:09:51.
A hilarious theme song for the rally was penned by a singer songwriter from Tennessee, who calls himself, Whey Jude. Check out his cool Milk Moonshiner Video.
All in all we had some great coverage of the event. Many other cameras and videos were taken, for independent Youtube channels. I am now working on my own video about the event. As I see other videos and stories, I will add them to the comments on this post. You are welcome to do the same. So, word will spread!
