Tent City dans La Ville-Lumière

From 2009-04-24

These "campers" have chosen a spot just around the corner from the apartment. Their "two-second" tents, which unfurl rapidly and do not require poles, were a gift from the charity, Médecins du Monde, during their "tent city" campaign. Three hundred homeless people were given tents to sleep in on the streets of Paris. This campaign prompted outrage and sympathy, and thus forced the government to allocate €7m for housing for the homeless.
