Homeless advocates rally for change in Fort Lauderdale

From Southeast Florida-

Hungry for change, about 100 protested Saturday in front of the downtown federal courthouse against city leaders and their ordinance to restrict outdoor feedings for the homeless.

The most coveted speaker: Arnold Abbott, 90, who has grown into an iconic figure in the movement to "decriminalize homelessness."

Abbott appeared before a rowdy crowd that chanted his name and cheered for the leader of the Love Thy Neighbor nonprofit that holds weekly feedings. He was welcomed like a local celebrity of sorts.
