LOCAL PEOPLE ASSEMBLE at GREG NIEWENDORP’s on Monday, October 8, at 8:00 a.m.
Charlevoix County Sheriff George Lassiter has notified Greg Niewendorp that Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDA) Regulation Agent Kevin Latterwasser, and possibly other agents, NOT accompanied by Michigan State Police, will come on Niewendorp’s property on Monday, October 8, at 9:00 a.m., for the purpose of TB testing Niewendorp’s cattle herd and applying NAIS compliant RFID ear tags to the cattle, against Niewendorp's will. NOTE: Michigan State Police are not being allowed to participate in this. Since February, when he submitted a letter to the MDA stating that he would not participate in the MDA’s dangerous experimental TB herd testing program, Niewendorp has refused to let the MDA on his property. On August 21, state police and an MDA representative came illegally onto Niewendorp’s property attempting to coerce him into having his herd tested, and Niewendorp politely escorted them off.
Sheriff Lassiter will come on alone to serve the warrant, and it his desire that media and the people there video him shaking Niewendorp’s hand as he serves the warrant. He will dispatch to the MDA agent(s), waiting out on the raod, when it is time for them to come in.
Niewendorp’s desire is that the cattle NOT be tested or tagged.
This event is being well attended by local and regional people who will join with Niewendorp in standing up for his God-given divine rights and preventing the barbaric behavior of the MDA. Niewendorp is not encouraging long distance travel for this event. We encourage this type of non-compliance in your own neighborhoods, rather than spending time traveling.
PLEASE DO NOT BRING FIREARMS. THIS IS A PEACEFUL CIVIL ACTION.
UNKNOWN VEHICLES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE PROPERTY
Bring your hearts, your resolve, and your good mind.
Greg Niewendorp is putting everything on the line for the freedom and rights of all of us. Let us not fail him.
