Thanks to all who have supported the campaign. After the shameful removal of Wentworth Park Tents and the destruction of their community in February, ongoing lobbying and campaigning has resulted in the tents still being up at Belmore Park until the beginning of 2016 when the Council cunningly has used Security Guards to remove tents by stealth, ie remove tents when people are away for a few days and not allow new tents. We have continually asked the Council to simply give an undertaking that they will not take tents without consulting with the Homeless Community members to respectfully obtain their permission. Now the poor Homeless people are gravitating back to Wentworth Park. COUNCIL DONT SHAME YOURSELF BY BULLYING HOMELESS PEOPLE AND TAKING THE WENTWORTH TENTS AGAIN

- Homelessness Is hopelessness. Mosquitos in the air. The feeling of despair. The Anger, I’d love a toasted sanga. I feel dirty, I’m hurting. Don’t wanna be here anymore. Where did I get this sore? I’m cold, I’m hot. Feel like I’m gonna rot. Funny it is not. RJ. "Moondrop" Smith 30/11/14
