So... I watched a bit of the video, once they started heckling, I became uninterested. I then read an article that was later posted by Wrabbit2000 (on
the first page).
Ok. So a new law was passed that says a group can only feed for free, twice a year, in certain areas, and after paying a fee. (If I gathered
Part of me understands the reasoning for this... except the 'only twice every 12 months' thing. I believe the reason for that may be to push the
organization into securing a building (with running water and such) in a downtown location were they could then offer items regularly and safely.
There could be a number of reasons that "Food Not Bombs" is choosing not to get a building. An idea for them:
They could make a bunch of 'cover' organizations with different members as the head. Sign up under a different one each time. Granted, this would
mean they would have to pay each time, and twice a year gets taken up pretty quickly.
It's pretty sh*teee that the law was made, but there are ways around it. Like serving at your house. Or splitting up into groups and hitting places
you know that homeless hang out and drop off bag lunches.
Here is your box... please step out of it.
Also- the way they react when the police come to make arrests isn't helping anyone. They are just making a scene.
When a two-year-old starts yelling and screaming at the store, do you have any desire to communicate with them in any sort of intelligent way? Or do
you just want them to stop screaming?
When people act like that- the point gets lost.
