Fighting to Stop the National Animal Identification System (NAIS)
We are a coalition working to stop the National Animal
Identification System (NAIS), and equivalent state programs. Our
coalition is made up of people with diverse backgrounds and political
views. Why? Because we agree on one thing:
NAIS and similar programs must be stopped.
NAIS is a coordinated government-corporate attack on
personal privacy, property rights, and religious freedom, on a
resilient and diverse food supply, on good animal husbandry, and on
human culture and American traditions.
- NAIS will create a huge surveillance and monitoring system,
that will be a dangerous and unprecedented intrusion by government,
with the assistance of powerful technology corporations, into the
private daily lives of citizens, and a heavy burden on their real and
personal property rights. For some, this intrusion will go so far as
to violate their religious beliefs.
- The enormous economic costs and crushing recordkeeping
requirements of NAIS, will make it impossible for small independent
farmers and ranchers to survive, and will place control of our food
supply firmly in the hands of a very few, very powerful, agri-industry
- NAIS, was designed by multinational corporations who have
marketed to many countries that animal identification is necessary to
sell those countries' meat on the world market. It is not needed
to safeguard our food supply.
- Under the guise of protecting animal health, NAIS will force
farmers and ranchers to adopt practices contrary to the health of both
animals and the land.
- Finally, NAIS is an attack on culture - on the traditional
agricultural and pastoral civilization, practiced for over ten
thousand years since the founding of human societies, and the core of
American culture: our farms, our land.
