March for the Homeless 2015 London #Homeless #StreetKitchen

This will be a march and protest in Central London about the treatment of homeless people in the UK/Ireland and beyond..

This is an important new growing solidarity protest/action that will be held in many Cities and towns across the UK & Ireland, on the same day by activists and groups concerned with our streets.

Many of those calling this action are involved on a daily basis with our streets and we encourage people to support these grassroots groups by getting involved in their ongoing attempts to assist those in need. We have four months to build and hold the biggest homeless protest and gathering held in London whilst increasing our vital street support networks. We can put housing and homelessness to the top of the agenda in this an election year..

For example we have had spikes put in where homeless people take shelter in London. The police and local councils have removed sleeping gear and food donated by public in order to discourage homelessness and rough sleeping in London. In a number of boroughs it is now even illegal to commit the heinous crime of rough sleeping under Operation Encompass enforced by the MET Police and various local councils.

People need support from society, not being kicked when they are down. They are being killed by the cold and indifference, people are running out of places to turn to as austerity hits the services they use....

We have to come together to say enough is enough...

There is no reason in this society for people not to be able access adequate housing, food or good health other than a lack of political will and sufficient funding
