Foshan municipal government in southeast China’s Guangdong province unveiled a new measure to drive the beggars and homeless people out of the city, amid the recent pubic criticism against the last move to tackle begging by placing pyramid-shaped cement cones (see the following picture) under the overpasses to keep away the homeless and beggars from sleeping there in cities like Guangzhou and Foshan.
“Public squares, bus stations, ports, docks, pedestrian bridges, stadiums, theaters, parks, tourist attractions and other public places would have no people begging or sleeping,” said the new measure.
The measure was drafted by Foshan city’s Housing and Urban-Rural Development Bureau, aiming to improve the image of the city.
The bureau believed begging is an “uncivilized phenomenon” and has a negative impact on the look of a city.
