US court tells ISKCON to stop seeking donations at LAI airport

The Hare Krishna movement has been stopped from seeking donations at the Los Angeles International Airport by a US court.

The court allowed the Los Angeles Police to enforce a 13-year-old municipal ordinance which would prevent members of the movement from seeking donations at the airport.

“From now on, the travelling public will not have to worry about solicitors asking for money,” Gina Marie Lindsay, executive director of Los Angeles World Airports, which operates the Los Angeles International Airport, said after the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals lifted a preliminary injunction imposed in 1997, which stopped city police from enforcing solicitation ban against groups seeking donations, in particular the members of the ISKCON of California.

The ruling still allows groups and individuals to distribute literature and speak to willing travellers.
