Homeless people evicted

SYDNEY — A group of homeless people were abruptly evicted from a disused warehouse here on January 31 by oil giant Shell. The homeless people had been squatting in the warehouse for almost one year.

According to the squatters, Shell has no plans to use the heritage-listed building immediately. However, Gavin Sullivan, spokesperson for Sydney Housing Action Collective, said Shell's “approved development plans indicate the building will eventually be knocked down and replaced by a service station, convenience store and the ubiquitous McDonald's”.
