Salam & Peace,
We have been invited by the University of Toronto to speak on ‘Food & Religion’, a very interesting topic that is part of their ‘Religion in the public sphere’ series. Our main topic will be ‘restoring sacredness’, a topic that really is the heart of it all. When we realize what sacred beings we are, our miraculous beginning, and our most noble spiritual destiny, we’ll see ourselves, our food, our environment and all other inhabitants of the cosmos in a different light….
If you happen to be in Toronto, or know someone who will be, try and swing by if you can.
This is such an important topic, as we belive a spiritual based approach to food is very profound, yet not regularly discussed. We pray we can share something of value.
Spread the word!
Salam and Peace,
Green Zabiha is a member of the Farmer To Consume Legal Defense Fund, a legal watchdog that fights for the rights of small farmers across America. Increasingly regulations are being put in place which could seriously affect the ability for small farmers to survive, it should be no surprise that many of these are being pushed by big Agri-business and if they get their wish our food choices will be severely affected. Stand up for small farmers! One of the most disturbing provisions of this bill is the ability for the government to conduct random, warrentless searches of business records of farmers. I don’t even think they can do that for drug dealers. I know many of you are familiar with ‘action alerts’, but usually they are about civil liberties, etc. While those are very important, we should also take part in these types of alerts because they affect all of us, and if passed they can have very significant implications for us moving forward.
Please read the below action alert and spread the word, additionally we’d encourage as many people as possible to join FTCLDF to support their important work.
