MY SISTER WITH A HOMELESS MAN AT SYDNEY’S EDDY AVENUE WHERE OUR GRANDFATHER, POPPA BELL, WAS A TRAMWAYS SIGNALS COORDINATOR.
This article is what started me thinking.
They just wanted to feed the hungry.
But now seven activists face charges of violating an Orlando, Florida city ordinance that could net them 60 days in jail, a $500 fine or both.
On June 6, four people were arrested in Orlando’s Lake Eola Park for passing out vegan food to the homeless for breakfast.
They are Steve Willis, Dylan Howeller, Noelle Bivens, and Brock Monroe.
Last week, Jonathan ‘Keith’ McHenry, 54, Ben Markeson, 49, and Jessica Cross, 24, were released from the Orange County Jail on $250 bail each, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Judge Thomas Kirkland gave the three charged people a trespass warning and told them they must keep away from Lake Eola Park, where they had been serving free food to the homeless with their anti-poverty activist group Orlando Food Not Bombs.
But Mr Markeson said that Food Not Bombs would continue to feed those in need in Lake Eola Park. He said he and Ms Cross would stay away from the parks, and help cook food elsewhere.
Mr Markeson told reporters: ‘I don’t know why they’re so threatened by people ladling out food’.

Link to work you’ve already written – especially to good work that you wrote long ago. Don’t be shy about linking to yourself: linking to your own work is a service, not self-promotion.
I thought back in 2004 that I had reached my own stone pillow salvation. Now I live with a loved one, amongst loved ones but I am not sure that my own Stone Pillows will not haunt me forever.
ONLY A SUFFERING GOD WILL DO.
