ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Four more activists have been arrested for
feeding pancakes and donuts to the homeless in downtown Orlando.
Police officers handcuffed the activists and loaded them into a police van Monday just after they had distributed food to about 30 homeless people in defiance of a city ordinance.
The Orlando ordinance requires groups to get a permit to feed 25
or more people in parks in a downtown district. The rules also restrict the groups to two permits per year for each park.
The law was passed in 2006, but Orlando Food Not Bombs challenged it in court. In April, a federal appeals court in Atlanta ruled that the Orlando law was legal.
Last week, four other activists were arrested for violating the law.
