Anti-homeless measures in many modern cities


PETALING JAYA: With the ban on soup kitchens in the city centre, Kuala Lumpur has joined the ranks of cities that enforce anti-homeless measures.

In the US, 33 cities have blocked meal-sharing or are considering restrictions on food sharing, NBC News reported. 

The National Coalition for the Homeless, which shared a draft of its upcoming report with the news organisation, revealed that police in at least four municipalities have recently fined, removed or threatened to jail private groups that fed the homeless instead of leaving the job to government-run service agencies.
