The protest's end came one month after former priest Philip Berrigan led a prayer service for the homeless at a downtown Washington subway stop where gates had been installed to keep out people seeking shelter. The subway installed the fence after receiving complaints about the homeless sleeping and relieving themselves in the station after it closed  each night. Snyder and the other pro- testers broke their fast at a ceremony at the downtown sub- way stop, where a chain-link fence had been installed in November.
