Protest August 10, 2006
Food is a Right, Not a Privilege
Thursday, August 10, 2006 at NOON at Las Vegas
City Hall, 400 Stewart Ave., Las Vegas, Nevada.
The people of Las Vegas demand Food Not Bombs for our 13,000 + homeless and poverty stricken folks.
A newly passed city ordinance, Bill No. 2006-37 prohibits sharing food with the homeless in OUR public parks.
Not only does this ordinance prohibit sharing food with the homeless, it prohibits sharing with ANY person "whom a reasonable ordinary person would believe to be entitled to apply for or receive assistance" from the government under state law.
Stand in solidarity! This is not only a homeless issue. This is a human rights issue which affects us ALL.
