Armed Activists Defy Texas Law to Feed the Homeless

The folks over at the aptly named organization Don’t Comply, took to the streets just outside the Austin Street Shelter in Dallas this weekend to perform, what has now become a revolutionary act – feeding the homeless.

Last December, the Dallas city council enacted Ordinance No. 29595, which makes it illegal to serve food to the homeless without jumping through a statist myriad of bureaucratic hoops, including a fee, training classes, and written notices.

“We are not complying with a bad law today,” Matthew Short, PR director of Don’t Comply said. “Evidently the city of Dallas believes that it’s wrong, or bad, or unlawful for us to feed more than a certain number of people at a time. But, during Christmas, we want to show love to our community and give these people a chance to survive the winter, whether it be with blankets or coats, or just giving them a holiday party like today with all kinds of cookies, and goodies, turkey and dressing, and the whole nine yards.”

is in every religion, and it's great to see fellow Americans helping each other..Rand's tax plan helps the poor more than Trump's plan by 10 fold...

Sure... wouldn't want them fed something that wasn't GMO'd or out of a dumpster.

Laugh. It makes you feel good.

Most important part of the project.

It is more important to secure a right than to exercise it. For if one exercises a right with government permission, it ceases to be an exercise of a right!

Please! Someone show us you did not compromise with law enforcement!!!

We want real liberty, not just the appearance of liberty.

Liberals feed the hungry, too. Show us you are really different. Provide the proof.

Peaceful Civil disobedience and non-compliance can be a powerful tool.

Kudos for these folks!
