Southampton City Council Scrap PSPOs to Criminalize the Homeless

This petition had 209 supporters

Southampton City Council are 'fining' people on the streets £100 in five areas of the city using Public Space Protection Orders - for being homeless, obviously unaware of the number of Local Authorities that have dropped such punitive and callous measures following considerable public backlash.

Such punitive measures seeking to criminalize homelessness without doing anything to help prevent or end it need to be opposed and resisted and the council must scrap its own misguided use of PSPOs against those on the streets forthwith.
