the vagrancy act 1824 is an act of parliament passed to prohibit the homeless from sleeping on the streets, begging or receiving food from members of the public. As punishment for inevitably breaking these rules, the homeless are fined and constantly asked to relocate, which incorporates into the dehumanising experience of their life on the streets. their existence is already plagued with unimaginable sense anguish and absolute desperation, and this act only contributes to their state.
