The bodies of the homeless are being discovered in abandoned building, car parts and burning tents and it’s all being swept to one side. Just because somebody is homeless it doesn’t mean they aren’t a human being. Where has the compassion gone in this fucked up world?
Rough sleeping is up by 55% since last year. Rough sleepers are apparently 13 times more likely to be a vicitim of violence whilst on the streets and homeless camps are being shut down, their tents slashes, belongings emptied and even being issued anti-social behaviour warnings and fines or otherwise being prosecuted.

“A London-based campaign, launched this week by a group of homeless charities, has called on the next mayor of the city to do just that. Research commissioned by the campaign suggested that 68% of Londoners are appalled by the scale of homelessness in the capital, with 72% believing the next mayor should do more to improve the situation.”.
And that’s London alone.
