Stop Robbing the Homeless

Kentish Town Police Station, London. Sat 21 Oct 2017



 

 Campaigners hold tents and a poster 'Camden Council Met Police STOP Harassing Homeless People' outside

 Kentish Town Police Station. Police have been taking tents away from homeless people on the streets, removing
    
 

 their shelter and endangering their lives in a campaign by police and Camden Council 'in the interest of public safety'

 Campaigners go in to the police station with tents to ask to be arrested for the crime of having a tent on the street

 but they have to wait as there is only one officer who is busy seeing someone else

 

 

 They wait

 

 and wait

 

and finally go in to ask to be arrested. I have to leave at this point, but later hear that the officer was surprised
at what they reported and they were told carrying a tent was not a crime. Later both police and Camden Council
both denied they harassing the homeless - in contradiction to the evidence from the street.
