The deadline has arrived for folks wanting to offer their comments to the USDA and US Department of Justice about the food industry.
The federal government is specifically seeking comments and stories about how corporate control of the food system affects average citizens. If you’re concerned that just a few big businesses have so much power over where your food comes from and how it’s produced, be a citizen: tell the government! Your comments will help to inform a series of workshops on the issue in the coming year.
E-mail your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org BY DECEMBER 31. Or you can submit two paper copies of your comments to Legal Policy Section, Antitrust Division, U.S. Department of Justice, 450 5th Street, NW, Suite 11700, Washington, D.C. 20001. All comments received will be publicly posted – if you’d like your comment to be anonymous, please note that in your email.
For more background, check with the US Working Group on the Food Crisis.
