Subscribe to our YouTube channel for free here: https://sc.mp/subscribe-youtube Nguyen Van Son and Eppie Yip were among the 17 homeless people who lived on a footbridge in Sham Shui Po, Hong Kong’s poorest district. After packing up their shelters in mid-July, some of them have moved to a nearby park. But the homeless problem still persists in the neighbourhood. Hong Kong property is the most expensive in the world. The monthly rent for low quality subdivided flats even smaller than a car park space can cost more than HK$4,000 or US$509, while public housing has a five and a half year long waiting list. Soaring rents, and inadequate public housing force the city’s poorest inhabitants to sleep rough.

El lado oscuro de Los Angeles, California. Primera parte

Acompaña a este mexicano a caminar en la noche, al interior de uno de los barrios más peligrosos del centro de Los Ángeles, California. Skid Row es un barrio de mayoría afroamericanos, muchos no se atreven a entrar de día, mucho menos de noche. Primer video de 7 videos.

California's economy is booming. Yet, there are tens of thousands of people living on the streets and not benefitting at all.

There are as many homeless people in Greater Los Angeles as in the whole of Germany. Michael J. Diehl is one of them. The Texan-born Michael J. Diehl, aka MJ, has lived in a tent in California for four years. Instead of an apartment, he has a guitar and a dog. He used to be a deep sea diver in the Gulf of Mexico, working on oil rigs and pipelines and earning thousands of dollars. Then he was shot in the head. The bullet is still there today. As a consequence, he lost his health, his work, his family and his home. Now, years later, he has created another family and home for himself on the banks of the Santa Ana River. But the local authorities are threatening to move them on. MJ and many others are ready to put up a fight.
