What actually happened at Parks & Rec. regarding the food permits?
Did you fill out a form to apply for it? Did they give you a written
denial? If so, were there any administrative appeal procedures? I'm
not a lawyer, but from the little I know, you need to exhaust all
possible remedies, have proof that you did. Should make the defense
cases a little more credible.

Yes, we did exhuast all administrative options. Park and
Rec will not permit a group for the free distribution of
food in a city park. We tried charging a penny, we got
insurance, we covered the food with a tent and got ticketed
for erecting a permenent structure.

What is it with the permit thing? Everyone, EVERYONE,
asks me, "what about a permit? Don't you have a permit?"
We are FEEDING people. We cook food in our houses with
the care that you would cook your own food. Does the
government come and inspect your kitchen when you make
food for your wife? for your kids? No.

I called the Mayor's press sec (Noah Griffin 554-7111)
to ask his reason for shutting us down and he said
"Well, we're concerned about the food, you know, the
cleanliness. We don't want any of the public to get

Sounds kind of like Vietnam. "Kill the people to help them."

Got it? Food IS political. Sudan currently farms for
export when it could feed its starving people. The
people need the right to eat food. The people need the
right to give. This it what it is all about.

About legal defense: No one is being tried. The police are
citing people out with no intention of bringing this
to court. They are, though, taking our trucks, our white
buckets, our cups, and our bread.
