Squatters have occupied a former office block in the heart of trendy Soho, and have said that they intend to turn it into a hub for the capital’s growing army of homeless people.
The activists said that by providing shelter for the homeless they wished to, “embarrass Westminster council and people in positions of power by doing the work they should be doing.”
Talking to the Standard, Jon, a member of Street Kitchen, added:
We want to offer a safe space policy to vulnerable and homeless people – no drugs, no violence, racism or sexism.Our aim is to ensure no one has to sleep on the streets of London. There are thousands but to us one person is too many.
