I am at the huge Slow Food Nation event in San Francisco and took part last night in the reading of the Slow Food Declaration for a Healthy Food and Agriculture Policy, now collecting signatures online as well as open for discussion. Raj Patel, author of Stuffed and Starved, has some especially interesting comments on his worth-reading blog on the event.
