We spent a week sleeping in a car once (post Christchurch Feb quake), it’s no fun. So I say a very sincere good morning to the “Park up for homes” folks this morning:
More than 500 cars park up to support homeless families in south Auckland
It was 11 degrees Celsius in south Auckland on Thursday night. But outside there was singing, cheering and hugging. Crowds were being fed and hot drinks were distributed. There were smiles, and lots of them.
Around one thousand people showed up to ‘Park up for homes’ in Mangere, most of whom have chosen to sleep in their cars overnight.
Why? To show solidarity for many Kiwi families who say they are homeless and forced to sleep in their vehicles every night. …
One in every hundred New Zealanders is homeless. The Nats are trying to deny and ignore the problem. Change the government.
