The Met have announced plans to make ‘rough sleeping’ a crime in 6 London boroughs. Operation Encompass will be in effect in Camden, Islington, Lambeth, Southwark and Westminster, alongside Croydon.

Lambeth Housing Activists oppose this latest attack on homeless people. We call on Boris Johnson and the Greater London Authority to call off this hideous campaign criminalising some of the most vulnerable people in our city. Already there have been arrests of people whose only crime is to be homeless due to the lack of Shelter spaces and suitable accommodation.

The biggest crime of all is the fact that people are homeless today.
