Food Not Bombs Albuquerque Facing Fines and Arrests!!

Hey Comp@s,
Food Not Bombs Albuquerque was recently notified that we are facing having to pay $3,000.00 in fines and we will be "forcibly removed" from the area near the UNM Bookstore if we continue to share free healthy food. We are asking for all of our friends and supporters to bring video cameras, cameras, instruments like drums and guitar, and join us as we share a free healthy meal with the community Wednesday March 11 @ 11am and Friday March 13 @ 12 noon at the UNM Bookstore.
Thanks so much for your support in the past and we hope to
see you in the streets!

Greetings from your Sisters and Brothers in Orlando. We are just filing our answer today with the 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals, in answer to the City of Orlando's appeal of our US District Court victory that declared the city's ordinance that criminalized sharing food with the poor & homeless unconstitutional and labelled this activity as constitutionally protected speech.

You can view the rulings and the city's appeal o our website at - our answers to the appeal should be posted on the site sometime this evening.

Grace and Peace
