According to reports, the city of Los Angeles is under fire for allegedly hiding the homeless population in order to prepare for the 93rd Academy Awards on Sunday.
A local told news sources that he was given the choice to either move or have his things demolished, according to Fox 11 Los Angeles.
“They came to us about a week ago saying that we had to move by Friday, 6 p.m. because they were trying to clean up for the Oscars and they told us if we didn’t move, they were gonna just demolish our stuff,” said DJ, a man living in a tent. “They forced us to go to the Grand Hotel on 3rd and Figueroa and they kicked everybody out of Union Station so it looks better for the image.”
Andy Bales of Union Rescue Mission — an organization dedicated to helping the homeless through food, shelter, education, counseling, and long-term recovery programs — told Fox 11 that anytime there is a big national event, the city tries to sweep the homeless under the rug.
“We shouldn’t be about putting on a good show, we should be about doing good for our brothers and sisters, our neighbors who are suffering on our streets,” Bales said.
Los Angeles city council member Kevin De Leon denied the claims, saying that “while the 93rd Academy Awards are being held at Union Station this year, and despite irresponsible rumors, NO unhoused residents are being forced to relocate.”
“Since being sworn in, my office has been painstakingly working to house those experiencing homelessness throughout my district and we were able to offer housing options to unhoused residents in the vicinity of Union Station,” De Leon said.
DJ advised the city of Los Angeles, “If you’re gonna have your awards show, don’t have it where the homeless people are and you don’t have to worry about it.”
