Driving the Homeless Out of Town: Two Activist Attorneys Weigh In
by Robert Norse
Thursday Jun 30th, 2011 9:25 AM
Attorneys Ed Frey of Santa Cruz and Cheyenne Elahi of Orlando, Florida will be guests on Bathrobespierre's Broadsides tonight. Frey is a local attorney who was recently jailed and is out on appeal bail for the "crime" of sleeping in peaceful protest against Santa Cruz's anti-homeless outdoor and vehicular sleeping ban. Elahi is an attorney for Orlando Food Not Bombs, which has suffered over 20 arrests recently for feeding homeless people in Lake Eola Park with a political "Food Not Bombs" message.
