All Saints Soup Kitchen Disrupts Oakland Park City Commission

All Saints' Soup Kitchen has been facing an escalating trend of harassment and enforcement actions against it in the year or so since the City of Oakland Park's attempts to shut it down began doing some real damage. Today, the mission still shares every day inside the church, but its soup kitchen remains closed and the parish complains of a lot of intimidation tactics from Broward Sheriffs' Office.

Wednesday, during Oakland Park City Commission's public comments section, Father Bob Caudill  of All Saints' led a disruption of the meeting  to protest the city's lack of conscience. Most of the city commissioners left the dais during this protest, even as the majority of the people attending the meeting stood in solidarity with Father Bob. See the video:

The fight for All Saint's Soup Kitchen is not quite over yet, so if you haven't already stop by 3460 Powerline Road in Oakland Park to join the fight.
