An ordinance "for the urban decorum of the historical center" signed by the Mayor of Como before Christmas was passed to fine homeless and migrants begging in Como, in Northern Italy.
Housing Rights Watch and FEANTSA have been working on the issues of criminalisation of homelessness since 2012.
In 2012 we launched and ran a campaign to raise awareness about the issue called, Poverty is Not a Crime.
