Anti-homeless spikes installed in posh London neighborhood spark outrage

Recommended Posts

After photos of metal spikes designed to prevent homeless people from sleeping in posh London neighborhoods surfaced online, people have been venting their outrage with controversial invention all over the social media.

 

Photographs of metal studs on the doorsteps of a luxury flat building on Southwark Bridge Road in central London spurred an “anti-homeless spikes” hashtag campaign by Ethical Pioneer Twitter page.

 

An anonymous resident of the residential complex told the Telegraph, that “there was a homeless man asleep there about six weeks ago. ‘Then about two weeks ago all of a sudden studs were put up outside. I presume it is to deter homeless people from sleeping there.”

 

However, London resident Nathan FitzPatrick tweeted after talking to locals outside the building that only one person could confirm homeless were sleeping there – and that was a woman and a child.

 

Some social media users however were justifying the actions, claiming that nobody likes homeless people and beggars hanging around and saying that such spikes and similar anti-homeless constructions are pretty common occurrence not only London but in many other European countries as well.

I can''t understand how anyone could do this, I really can't. It's so cruel that it almost seems surreal

Capitalist industrial society begins to run off the rails, so for the sake of its own perpetuation, it generates capital for its servants by creating brand new industries and positions designed specifically at making the world more inhospitable for human beings, one day at a time.
