Homelessness is not having a home. Homeless people, like the financially poor, are scapegoated by capitalism.

USA

Various places in the US have declared it illegal to feed homeless people. In 2014, Fort Lauderdale passed a law against camping, panhandling, food sharing and engaging in other "life sustaining activities.[1]

As of 2019, homelessness was growing in the USA[2] and the LA Times reported in 2019 that 16,000 people in Los Angeles were living in cars, vans and RVs.[3]

In 2017 Atlanta police handed out "flyers across the city telling people that a permit is needed to give food to the homeless."[4]

In 2019, a Virginia ordnance was passed making it illegal to sleep in ones car, on the grounds that the practice “can have a negative effect on neighborhood aesthetics.”[5]

McDonalds has tried playing music 24/7 in an effort to deter homeless people from sleeping near their outlets.[6]
