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
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.
