Occupy Sydney: Council Eviction meeting: The aftermath.

  For 590 days City of Sydney Councillors did nothing. But when Liberal Councillor Christine "Eyes Wide Shut" Forster belatedly noticed that Occupy Sydney were feeding and supporting our Sydney Homeless community 24 hours a day with a zero funding base and doing so successfully the thought that the credibility her beloved parasite charities which get so much funding for so little value to their identified target constituencies being undermined  was too much. Armed with a bevy of mainstream media  mogul owned Talkback spindoctors and faux journalists who never let the  truth get in the way of a good Mainstream political beatup Councillor Eyes Wide Shut was in her element. She could bash those Occupiers who dared with no resources to do 24 hours a day what her beloved funded charities which give politicians who do nothing such glowing endorsements do for as little as an hour a month. She could declare that Occupy was not a protest.The mere fact that the absurdity flowed from her Liberal endorsed tongue would give sure fire credibility and media regurgitation would make the illusion reality. Again the Conservatives would have effected a win for their patrons in the Corporate sector-in this case those who monetise the marginalised. And those pesky protesters who really should be working as wageslaves in a minimum wage job to drive profits for the fatcats who fund the party could be exposed for the frauds they really are- malcontents who pretend to find Corporate Greed distasteful.

  Most Councillors luxuriated in the comfort of chambers to arrive at conclusions most would not have reached had they ventured out in the cold wet winter night as urged by Clr Linda Scott (Lab) to see for themselves the Sydney Homeless Community come out with Occupiers to support Occupy Sydney at the No Eviction barbecue.
  The Liberal/Clover Moore Alliance attempts to impose their jaundiced picture on a paint by numbers canvas were somewhat stifled by magnificent efforts if the Stalwart Greens Councillor Irene Doutney and Labors Linda Scott. Two stark left jabs of reality from these

Australia's First 24 -7 Homeless & Hungry Resource Centre
  Despite National annual expenditure by Federal State and Local Body Governments in the name of Homeless People
Occupy Sydney Homeless Resources 24-7
we have yet to identify another service where Homeless People can simply walk up and get free unconditional food drinks blankets and clothes- essential items when one is homeless and freezing at 2am on a Sunday Morning.
 The Occupy Sydney Homeless and Hungry Resource Centre now opens 24 hours
A day 7 days a week serving hot food providing free clothes blankets and sleeping bags when available. The Kitchen has in the last two weeks provided over 5000 individual services. About 600 kilograms of food was disbursed just over the last weekend.About 320 Blankets or sleeping bags have passed through the Centre along with at least 1000kgs of good quality clothes.

 The Resource Centre is 100% funded by public donations which can be made at the site or by calling/texting 0410722000 24 hours a day. 


moblie: 0410722000

 We and our homeless community friends are deeply indebted to the generosity and kindness of the many members of the public and Occupy Sydney Supporters who have and continue to support this vital community service.

   The City of Sydney is being asked by opportunist Councillor Christine Forster (sister of Federal Liberal/Coalition leader Tony Abbott MHR) to evict Occupy Sydney. Photos of her being interviewed by media nearby give the strong impression that she has seen the Homeless Resource Centre which shares the Occupy Sydney Protest site. While the councillor mistakenly describes the Protest site/Homeless Service facility as a camp, the Councillor does draw attention to the fact that there is in fact no Camping site for Homeless and Transient people in Sydney -and perhaps there should be. This will doubtless be part of the discussion at the Meeting at Occupy this Saturday (22 June) from 2pm which will informally discuss Homelessness solutions .

Occupy Sydney 24/7 Homeless Support.

  Sydneys First and Australias only known 24 hour 7 day Homeless Resource Centre is now fully operational.
The Occupy Sydney Homeless and Hungry Field Kitchen & Freestore is now in full swing at the 600 plus day old Occupy Sydney Occupation in Martin Place (corner of Elizabeth St.
  There is always a FREE hot drink and usually a hearty soup available 24 hours a day. Other donated food is distributed immediately it arrives. Bakery, shop end of shelf life food and fruit are available as they arrive. More is needed and welcome.
Occupy Sydney distribute blankets and sleeping bags on an as needed basis and more are always needed.
  Unwanted clothes and non technical "timeless' bookd are always welcome for our Freestore (open 24/7) and soon to be resurrected peoples library.
  Each year hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayers and donors funds are collected by the poverty industry in the name of homeless people.The same government and ngo organisations have for decades used the issue as a means to generate revenue. Revenues organisations and government departments have expanded massively. So has the problem as housing and associated costs become less affordable.
  An occupier with some experience of the marginalisation industry has observed that there is no plan will or intent by government to resolve the problem. He accuses government and the Sector of callously using homeless and marginalised people as tokens to collect money with, cynically cycling them through a circuit of monetisation opportunities before spitting them back onto the street to start the process again.
Incredibly until now there has been no q
  We know theres a problem and that it is affecting more people than ever before. Rather than joining with those who monrtise homeless people Occupy Sydney are joining with the Sydney Homeless and supporters community to drive sustainable solutions to this problem which should not exist in a place so rich in resources.
  The Occupy Sydney 24/7 Homeless & Hungry Field kitchen is 100% crowd funded and resourced.
A meeting will be held 2pm Saturday 21 July at the Occupation to open a discussion about ending homelessness.
