The Rosa Parks of 2008?

Last August Pennyslvania state troopers kidnapped Mennonite dairy farmer Mark Nolt and confiscated many thousands of dollars of his property.

Now they've raided his farm again.

Friend and fellow-farmer Jonas Stoltzfus compared the state to the Gestapo and drew a parallel between Nolt's right to sell raw milk products directly to his customers with Rosa Parks' right to sit wherever she wanted on the bus. Linn Cohen-Cole who quotes Stoltzfus writes about the war on raw milk products here (but conflates the two raids).
