The Asbo, 2017

The Asbo

Donated by former worker in London, performed by Elle Payne

This is a very angry piece of paper, which is an ASBO for begging on the street. It was given to someone I was sitting down with and having a really nice conversation with. The police officers themselves didn’t agree with what they were doing because they didn’t believe it was an effective practice, but they had to do it as it was the law. It’s scary to think how people at the top are putting energy and tax payers money into huge operations to flyer vulnerable people into punishments, rather than actually care for people.

This film was created by Dorothy Allen-Pickard.
