Activists make cities more friendly for the homeless with mattress project

In an attempt to discourage homeless loitering, some cities have introduced spikes, covering flat, raised ledges to stop people from sitting or sleeping on them. So a group of London activists have created the Anti Anti Homeless Spikes project. They glue mattresses over a set of spikes, and create a comfy environment with a small library of second-hand books. Now, anyone is invited to sit, relax, and read for a while, or to spend the night.
