(First off this is Germany not America)

I'm not begging, I'm just protesting money...

A Berlin family of three has been living on practically nothing but love and the goodwill of others for more than two years and counting—not as a victims of the rough economy, but as activists who are on a money strike to protest what they call our “excess-consumption society.”

Sounds more like he's protesting work. Because he doesn't have a problem accepting the handouts of others...paid for by MONEY! What happens if everyone protests money? Who are going to leech off of?

On the positive side, he's not asking for government assitance. Just the charity of others.

And how about this part...rescuing food from dumpsters.

Fellmer founded an organization in which he partnered with a leading German organic-food chain to create an efficient way of “rescuing” food for distribution just before it is thrown away. He's also part of a website, foodsharing.de, which has registered more than 12,000 people across the country in just two months of its existence, he said, and has drawn interest from around the world in more than 20 languages (6 of which Fellmer speaks). In the U.S., where about 40 percent of food—or about $165 billion worth—gets wasted annually, there exists a similar fringe movement of vegan dumpster divers called “freegans.”

So he is protesting money, asking for handouts from people he meets and getting food by dumpster diving? We have a word for that in the English language...Bum.
