Food is different...

"Food is different. We need to understand that people are willing to die for their right to farm, to grow what they want, to feed their families and communities.

Good food, local food, food that supports the farmer, nourishes the eater and supports the community -- that is what Lee Kyung Hae died for"

Devotees know the importance of foodstuffs-we are a "kitchen religion" after all. What can we do to alleviate the corporate stranglehold on the worldwide production of food? How can we engage and enlighten the consciousness of not only our farming allies, but ourselves, so that natural, organic, and connected communities of self-sufficiency don't become a pipe dream?
