WE LOVE OUR FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION GLOBAL DAY OF ACTION MONDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2011

December 28, 2010

Consider organizing a free vegan meal and rally outside your countries U.S. Embassy, U.S. federal courts or U.S. military bases on February 14, 2011.

11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the Orlando case the week of February 14, 2011. Local and Federal officials have been trying to silence Food Not Bombs in cities all across the United States. Volunteers have been arrested, beaten and had their banners and literature discarded. Police have also told Food Not Bombs groups that we can feed the hungry as long as we don’t hand out literature and display our banners. City and federal officials have argued that the sharing of food with literature and banners is not protected by the first Amendment of the United States Constitution. This month police have arrested one volunteer in Orlando, Florida and are seeking to move the our meal in Rapid City, South Dakota to a less visible location.

The fact that there is so much poverty in a country that spends half its federal budget on the military is an issue leaders would like to silence.
