Homeowners have displayed their outrage that the tents of the homeless are being removed by Milton Keynes Council, and some have even had eviction notices put on them, despite these tents being distributed by charities and organizations working to support destitute people in the city.
The problem was highlighted and discussed for hours at a Housing and Community Committee at Milton Keynes Council Civic Offices last night Thursday (July 14). The meeting’s purpose was to address the ‘One Stop Shop’ for homeless people suggested in Milton Keynes Councils 2016/17 and projected draft.
Though numerous residents and councilors back the ideas, there were some concerns mounted. It’s a real concern, and a misuse of resources, providing people tents and then the Council coming along and removing them.
The cash used on tents by organizations and charities could be going on a night shelter. The Council has even put removal notifications on tents, and often homeless people have not only lost all their possessions that were within the tent but further lost family photos when they were removed.
The destruction of one’s property goes against their civil liberties. The right to property or freedom to own property is usually listed as a human right for a normal person concerning their properties. It recognizes a right for natural and legal persons to peaceful enjoyment of his possessions.
The right to property is one of the most questionable human rights, both in terms of its existence and understanding. Everybody has the freedom to own property, and no one should be arbitrarily denied his property.
The problem is, the area that the tents are on is not theirs, so ultimately they would have to leave, but where are they supposed to go to? Obviously, nobody cares, no pressure of course, simply let them get on with it, out of sight, out of mind.
However, whoever is driving them from their tents could at least do it with a modicum of dignity. There is the moment a woman is pulled from a tent as bailiffs remove people from The Ark homeless shelter. Rough sleepers fighting with bailiffs and police as they were being removed from the self-serving community on Friday morning.
A number of the camp’s inhabitants were captured on camera tussling with police, as problems blazed when a camp member was violently expelled from her tent. She later collapsed and was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance.
Members of the camp protested they had been given no notice that they were to be turfed off the land. Some stated that bailiffs had handled them with brute strength to move them on, whilst others maintained that their possessions had been launched into bins.
Where are they supposed to go? What’s transpired is a travesty and sickening. They have nowhere to live and nowhere secure to make a foundation now. They were required to remove the shelter in 30 minutes, no one cares about them, only their image.
All human beings are born free and equal. You are worth the same and have equal freedoms as anybody else. You are born with the intelligence to think and to know right from wrong and should behave toward others in a sense of kindness.
Everybody should have all of the liberties and freedoms in this statement, no matter what color, sex, or appearance he or she may be. It shouldn’t matter where you were born, what dialect you speak, what faith you are, what political beliefs you have, or whether you’re wealthy or destitute. Everybody should have all of the equities in this statement.
Everybody has the freedom to live, to be free, and to feel secure. No one should be held in slavery for any cause. The purchasing and trading of human beings should be restricted at all times. However, that’s not correct either, since it might seem that we are free on the surface, but we need to actually examine beneath the surface.
Contemporary slavery, further known as modern slavery, refers to the institutions of slavery that remain to survive in the modern day. Calculations of the abundance of slaves now vary from around 21 million-29 million to 46 million.
As many as 13,000 people in Britain are sufferers of slavery, nearly four times the amount previously believed. The total for 2013 signifies the first time the government has made an accurate assessment of the scale of modern slavery in the United Kingdom and comprises women coerced into prostitution, domestic workers, and operators in fields, factories, and fishing.
The National Crime Agency (NCA)’s human trafficking center had earlier put the figure at 2,744. Launching the government’s policy to abolish modern slavery, the home secretary, Theresa May, announced the range of degradation was shocking.
The first start to abolishing the scourge of modern slavery is recognizing and facing its presence. The predicted scale of the dilemma in modern Britain is shocking and these current numbers starkly strengthen the cause for necessary action.
Nevertheless, there will continually be slaves, because some people believe that we need a leader, and for that, we will never truly be free. The government is not interested in your freedom, they are interested in their profits. We were all born into a cage and the few liberties that are protected are only protected since they are valuable to our masters.
If we are not beneficial to our masters, particularly the government, then we are not a useful livestock. Nevertheless, as we have grown more used to our freedoms over time, we have started to examine why we require leaders at all.
The government like us to believe that we are free, that way they can get more from us, slaves. Freedom is slavery, and slavery is freedom. If the government can get the people to attack each other, when everyone brings up the truth of their circumstances, then they don’t have to waste nearly as much time controlling them directly, since the people who have become reliant on the stolen generosity of the government will forcefully resist any interrogation of the value of human ownership.
Furthermore, the intellectual and cultured stocks forever and always reliant upon the government will respond to anybody who demands freedom from control, you will harm everybody.
In fact, it wouldn’t hurt anyone, it would seemingly make everything much safer since actually, we don’t require anyone to lead.
No one should be put through torment, or any other treatment or suffering that is harmful or makes him or her feel less than human. Nevertheless, the government does it on an everyday basis, and what’s sadder, is that we the people let them get away with it.
We welcome into our homes the stories on the news, we examine the paper and gather every report that’s put in there, but the papers tell lies all the time, and as individuals, we accept them as truth. The fact of the matter is, that the people who have wealth, are all lead by indulgence, and they actually have no sense of the environment encompassing them.
They are all impervious to other people’s needs and more open-minded to making money, and their conduct towards other people in poverty proves that. It’s easy to critique people when it’s not befalling them, however, what they do is wrong, and they can manufacture the truth as much as they like, but when it comes down to it, you can attempt to rip another human being apart, but you can never destroy their soul, not really, but, you can starve them to destruction.
Maybe, that’s their plan, and I must agree that’s a great bit of planning. Adopt a method of execution, by killing off numerous people a year to tune the world, even out the chaff from the wheat, and later invoke a superhuman species, similar to what Hitler did, or at least aspired to.
It’s a good concept in the scheme of things, however, if it didn’t work for Hitler, it’s surely not going to work for this administration. It’s a tough position that people find themselves in, momentarily. People can either settle in this place, or they can burrow themselves out of it. That junction in the road, it goes in two directions, and we can take either one, which one are you going to take?
