Food Not Bombs Clashes With Fort Lauderdale Police
The Fort Lauderdale collective of Food Not Bombs, the international group dedicated to ending hunger and war, says that members of the group have been harassed recently by the Fort Lauderdale Police. The group claims the police recently raided a house illegally and that officers are making a concerted effort to stop them from feeding homeless people in Stranahan Park.

A police representative said that the group is misrepresenting the details of several incidents, that most of the issues in Stranahan Park have been about local businesses complaining, and that the group is "certainly free to serve food however they want." The police are looking into the claims and more information will be available soon.
