On Monday, March 20th, 2006 the people of Las Vegas will gather outside the Regional Justice Center and fill the courtroom as a show of solidarity and support for the local community group Food Not Bombs (FNB). Two womyn of FNB were cited for "feeding the homeless (over 25 people) without a permit". 8 homeless men were cited for "unlawful use of a hand signal" when they gave the finger to a park marshal who told them "you cannot eat in the park any more". The two womyn and 8 men all have court on Monday, March 20th at 8AM... March 20th is also the 3rd Anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. People are encouraged to bring food to share, signs to hold, and drums to play!
