It was 3 weeks a go that an image the same as this image at the top hit me badly. It was early in the morning and as usual I was sitting at the second floor of the bus, listening to music, looking at outside.
The junction where it goes to Portland Street a tall man was sleeping beside the wall and the people were passing by with their coffee in hands looking great to go to work and like they are not seeing anything. It hurt … It hurt my heart … As bad as I wanted to scream.
I wanted to scream that “People this is a first world class country. I did not grew up here so I totally understand a differentiation between a situation in a developing country when they don’t care in a obvious way and a first world country where shout about how Human rights are important. I understand it because I lived it so this image is not acceptable for me. In here, Manchester, United Kingdom and mainly because this city and as a resident is important to me to have the image it deserve.”
That image did not leave me and it gets worst when the more asked me if I have any cash. I had rough times in my life too and I knew sometimes you caught in a position that you need help.
So finally last week with the help of my good friend Marcela Hervia we made a short film about the homeless issue in Manchester that is getting worse with the main mission to wake people up. So please watch and Share:
