March in Support of Food Not Bombs Ft. Lauderdale

24 Feb

An unwarranted Fort Lauderdale Police Department raid at a collective house leased by local Food Not Bombs members has raised the latest wave of official intimidation against the homeless community and its advocates to near tsunami levels. The raid, during which police kicked in an unlocked door and allegedly groped a female guest, appears to have been politically motivated as tenants and guests were barraged with insinuations of affiliation with black bloc anarchism and queried as to whether the residence was “a militant training camp,” and whether guests were “terrorists”. On Friday, Feb. 25, 4:30pm, a rally against police intimidation will commence at FLPD headquarters, 1300 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, Florida, followed by a march east to Stranahan Park, 10 E. Broward Blvd., at which Food Not Bombs weekly Friday serving of the homeless will proceed as usual. The servings have occurred weekly almost without exception for 4 ½ years. click here for more.
