Homeless people to be fined up to £1,000

The war on the poor continues as Hackney Council’s Public Space Protection Order bans sleeping in public places with people fined £100 which can lead to £1000 in court.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Hackney Council bins anti-homeless order

Tuesday 16th June 2015

HACKNEY Council was forced to withdraw a controversial order yesterday following mass public outcry that it criminalised homeless people.

Tens of thousands signed a petition against the east London council’s Public Space Protection Order that banned rough sleeping, begging and busking with fines of up to £1,000.

Hackney’s deputy mayor councillor Sophie Linden said: “In the light of ongoing public concern, we have decided to withdraw Hackney’s Public Space Protection Order, while we further review how we can best tackle anti-social behaviour for the benefit of all our residents and further assess the process and impact of the order.”

MANCHESTER COUNCIL accused of trying to “ban homeless people” from the city centre yesterday after it applied for a injunction specially targeting peaceful campaigners currently occupying local gardens: here.

A group of homeless protesters who have been camped out on the streets of central Manchester for the last few months face eviction, and could face jail if an injunction goes ahead: here.

Faced with an ongoing protest by homeless people camped out in the centre of Manchester, the city council have been granted an injunction banning them from setting up any form of temporary accommodation (tents) anywhere in the centre of the city: here.

The numbers of homeless young people depending on councils and charities to put a roof over their heads, is three times greater than those officially recorded by the British government: here.
