Homeless repellant in Paris

May 19th 2009
If you think some London boroughs operate a tough-love policy to the homeless, just be thankful you don't live a the Argenteuil district of Paris. In this part of the French capital, the mayor was considering using a repellant spray to remove the homeless. But the mayor of Argenteuil has been forced to abandon plans to spray the bedding-down sites of local homeless with non-toxic repellent, which drives people away with its sickening smell, after an outcry by human rights activists and opposition politicians. Mayor Georges Mothron ordered the use of 'Maladore' over the Summer, but municipal workers refused to use it against the homeless populace, ruining his plans.
