Union from 4pm to give disenfranchised people an 
opportunity  to use their voice if they so wish via the electoral system

This is a new growing solidarity protest/action 
that will be held in many Cities and towns across 
the World on the same day by activists and groups 
concerned with our streets on 15th April
We encourage people to stand in solidarity with 
our streets as well bring along items that may be 
of use to those who find themselves homeless or 
in need to our Streets Kitchen, where a number of 
groups will also be serving food and distributing 
essential items to our homeless communities from 6 pm

There will be speakers from groups directly 
involved in the fight against homelessness as 
well as those homeless
 Live entertainment
. Spoken Word
 #EmptyBeds exhibition
 much more to be announced

Most importantly we need you
. Spread the word
Make noise
 Bring banners
   Make your voice heard!!


Many of those calling this action are involved on 
a daily basis with our streets and we encourage 
people to support these grassroots groups by 
getting involved in their ongoing attempts to 
assist those in need. We aim  to build and hold 
the biggest homeless protest and gathering held 
in London whilst increasing our vital street support networks
For example we have had spikes put in where 
homeless people take shelter in London. The 
police and local councils have removed sleeping 
gear and food donated by public in order to 
discourage homelessness and rough sleeping in 
London. In a number of boroughs it is now even 
illegal to commit the heinous crime of rough 
sleeping under Operation Encompass enforced by 
the MET Police and various local councils.
People need support from society not being kicked 
when they are down. They are being killed by the 
cold and indifference, and are running out of 
places to turn to as austerity hits services they use
We will come together to say enough is 
There is no reason in this society for 
people not to be able access adequate housing, 
food or good health other than a lack of political will and sufficient funding.

We call  on all individuals and groups to support 
our homeless communities wherever they may be, however they can
