A Recent Message from our Friends at Slow Food USA:
At Terra Madre Salone del Gusto in September, activist Winona LaDuke asked our national gathering to "put yourself on the front lines." As the Dakota Access Pipeline protests heat up, her words ring true:
"In our teachings, we have a prophecy called 'the time of the seventh fire.' It says we the Anishinaabe people will have a choice between two paths. One is well worn, but it is scorched. The other path is not well worn, but it is green. The time to choose our path is now. It is the choice that is upon all of us. It is a choice between life and death, a choice between oil and water, a choice for our food and our future."
Many of our Slow Food Turtle Island friends are at Standing Rock. Will you stand with them? We are a vast network that can make a difference. Read Winona's full address, then call the White House and make your voice heard.
Any fight for land is a fight for good, clean, fair food for all.
