It is launching a mass civil disobedience in LA and NYC on 9/28 to highlight big money corruption of democracy.

Milk’Op Pakistan finances and manages economies of scale and vertical integration to help groups of smallholder Pakistani dairy farmers produce more and sell better. Due to lack of awareness and capital, most of the 7 million households that rely on their small herds for livelihood manage them poorly. Milk’Op will help increase dairy production and sell directly to market through finances and trainings, allowing the farmers to become self-sufficient. Plans to pilot this operation, Prosperity of Togetherness, are slated for the end of this year.
