Sign the Care2 petition below:
Here in the United States of Serfs and Lords, the banksters who crashed the economy roam free while heroes who feed their fellows are arrested.
Randy Mcquade, the petition’s author writes, “90 year old Arnold Abbott of Ft. Lauderdale, Fl has been feeding the homeless since 1990. A new city ordinance has now made this illegal. Mr. Abbott and two ministers of the Sanctuary Church were arrested Tuesday 11/4/2014. After being released, Mr. Abbott went right back to his work and was arrested again.
In opposition to mr. Abbott and his work, the mayor of Ft. Lauderdale, John P. ‘Jack’ Seiler has suggested that the homeless need to rely on the government for food. Obviously, this has not worked and as Americans, we should be free to feed, assist or take care of anyone we please with OUR food bought with OUR money and distributed on OUR public land.
Please sign this petition and let the Ft. Lauderdale city leaders know that we, the American public, will not tolerate such laws that so disregard our freedoms and basic human decency.”
Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “One who breaks an unjust law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for law.”
Sign the petition to repeal this unjust law!
