THE BRONX - Dozens of Bronx residents are protesting against the most recent homeless shelter put up near their homes.

The protestors, who think Mayor Michael Bloomberg is to blame, gathered in front of his campaign office at 30-29 Middletown Road, asking the mayor to "stop dumping on Westchester Square".

Neighbors say they are upset there was no hearing before the shelter was started. They want to stop homeless shelters and social services buildings from being put up around residential homes.

The protestors have been rallying since September and plan to continue until the November election.
