Bristol Council v. Unhappy Campers

Increasing numbers of people are living long term in tents in Bristol's parks.  You don't do that over winter for the fucking fun of it.  You do it because you have absolutely no choice.  So Bristol Council's latest pronouncements about arresting homeless people camping and taking their tents from them is sickening.

Bristol's homeless campers could have their tents confiscated and face court action

St Mungos Homeless Outreach Workers Escorting UK Borders Agency Officers Around Rough Sleeping Spots in Bristol

Update 7 January: The allegation in this article that St Mungos Homeless Outreach workers accompanied and led UK Border Agency staff to rough sleeping spots in Bristol is not correct.

BHAM apologise to St Mungos and our supporters for publishing this inaccurate story without properly verifying the information.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BHAM has been told homeless outreach workers from St Mungos are showing UK Borders Agency officers around rough sleeping spots in Bristol.  Rough sleepers are being detained and at least one has been deported to the Czech Republic.
