VIDEO: Vote Against Corporate Agribusiness

Posted: Updated:

As a brief follow-up to my post from last Wednesday about Issue 2 in Ohio, here's a fun video about the "lie" regarding this ballot measure.

The thumbnail is this: Issue 2 will amend Ohio's state constitution in order to create a small regulatory panel that will be responsible for all of Ohio's livestock. Of course, corporate agribusinesses love this idea because they'll be able to stack, lobby and control this small, vulnerable panel much more effectively than the monolithic federal Department of Agriculture.

Consequently, Issue 2 will crush family farms and allow corporations to further control how our food is produced.

If you live in Ohio, be sure to help the rest of us out on this one. Issue 2 is being billed as a model for other states, so what begins in Ohio could spread nationwide.
