Hackney council have decided in their wisdom to make rough sleeping and begging criminal offences. People found begging or rough sleeping will be fined up to £1,000.
Let’s take action against their cruel, unjust treatment that criminalises vulnerable people the council has a responsibility to protect.
We’re holding a demo to coincide with the council full Cabinet meeting, to demand the order which criminalises the homeless is scrapped.
