The Criminals Of Tampa Food Not Bombs

Most of you that read this blog know that a recent FNB share  at Gaslight Park was threatened with arrest by TPD officers for refusing to pack up and leave immediately. TPD detained one of our greatest treasures Dezeray Lyn for 30 minutes while running her ID and stated that they can no longer share without permits, citing an ordinance that is only being enforced now as the city prepares for world famous musicians and sporting events happening this weekend. A Parks Division worker walked around photographing houseless folks eating breakfast in the park while TPD demanded that they leave the public park for doing absolutely nothing. This is in addition to TPD arresting houseless folks and telling them to "disappear for two weeks" to invisiblize them so tourists and concert goers don't have to see Tampa's suffering. here
This weekend they need your help. 
Saturday at 4 PM - 6 PM

Tampa Food Not Bombs will be sharing food with our friends who are experiencing homelesness and anybody and everybody who is hungry. 

This week's share is especially important, as we've faced harassment from the Tampa Parks Department and Tampa Police Department and been threatened with arrest for sharing food with the houseless community. We invite you to come and stand with us and the houseless community and stand against unjust laws. As always, Food Not Bombs will stand against oppression peacefully, so in the event that TPD makes arrests, we ask that you take to social media, live stream or tweet what's happening. We will not back down in the face of injustice.
