Homeless people deserve a Fair Go. In Feb 2015 Sydney Council took away tents personal items from Homeless people in Wentworth Park. They are threatening to do it again. Council, please state that you wont take Homeless people's gear without permission!
We have witnessed first hand Homeless people feeling intimidated by Sydney City Council. We have emailed and feel that the Council is not serious about treating Homeless people with the dignity the deserve. Then we found out that Council is threatening to take tents and belongings again. We have been in contact with the please help the homeless group and they have provided us with more information which we have found even more disturbing, thus this petition. We encourage you to visit their website www.pleasehelpourhomeless.com and support them.
We want Council to categorically state that they will respect Homeless people in Wentworth Park and let them live their in dignity and peace until they can find a better place to stay

Homeless people deserve a Fair Go.
You took away tents and personal belongings of defenseless Homeless people in February 2015, destroying their community and were shamed by the Sydney Morning Herald and Daily Telegraph. http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/makeshift-homes-in-wentworth-park-viaduct-packed-up-by-council-20150211-13buq9.html Homeless people are Homeless because they have no Home and you cant keep moving them along. They have regathered in Wentworth Park because they have nowhere else to go. Please show some compassion and give an Undertaking that you wont again take away their meagre possessions and tents without their permission. Leave them alone and let them live in their poverty in peace!
