Remove defensive architecture from cities in Australia

The homeless population of Australia is facing another struggle on top of already being on the street; lack of empathy from city councils. Defensive architecture is the small spikes that you see on the ground, benches so narrow that someone could never rest their head, uneven surfaces, unnecessary staircases, armchairs on public benches or benches being removed completely, overnight sprinkler systems to prevent anyone from getting a full nights rest.

Removing this is the first step in showing that homelessness is a problem, it is everywhere even though we can't see it right now. People need to be able to see the problem and there needs to be a solution, but hiding it from the public eye and taking more away from these people than they've already lost is not the way. Remove defensive architecture from our streets.
