It happens in France too! We call them with three initials, even more dehumanizing, "SDF" which stands for Sans (without) Domicile (home) Fixe (fixed). This category used to apply only to Gypsies living in a horse-drawn mobile home but now the meaning has changed.
A law was passed recently which makes the right to a roof over one's head a right that people can sue to protect but in reality it hasn't improved the situation much. There is a dire lack of affordable housing and the unemployment affects a majority of young people.
Despite the French language, the video is easy to understand: it's winter and the young SDF sleep outside the train station. They panhandle and buy hot drinks inside and kebabs from a street vendor as soon as they have enough money to do so.
For those who were sore that a Frenchie posted a video on homelessness in the US, I hope they feel better. I also invite them to go to one of my earliest posts where I showed photos of "urban furniture" installed in many French cities, intended to prevent homeless people from sitting, sleeping, staying, "loitering" in commercial or residential areas.
PS: the city's name sounds like "an-jay" not "angers".
