Homeless people take their destiny in hand

Camping on a slag heap

In Charleroi, the slag heaps of the old coal mines are shaping the horizon. To escape from the violence of the city center, a group of homeless people has decide to settle on one of these black mountain. Just out of prison, alcoholic, freshly divorced or just unlucky: they gathered tents, plastic chairs and matrasses to make a small tents village in the middle of the forest. They have build a kitchen, a hen house, started a vegetable garden.

Just one rule: no alcohol or drugs on the campement.

But the city was too close and soon violence, alcohol and drugs reached the camp. 

This rule having been broken, it took only two days for the camp to be deserted and let to the hens.

They went back on the road....
